This movie personifies the 80s and I still can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing... This movie is a fun campy, schlock filled adventure. I can't figure out if the best part of this movie is Kiefer Sutherland or the shirtless, oiled saxophone player... This movie hasn't aged well and is starting to come apart at the seams. I remember loving this movie, but looking back at it the film has a lot of flaws...
Die Lost Boys in diesem Film sind Vampire, Teenager Vampire - und ausserdem gibt es ein "Lost Girl", aber wozu erwähne ich sie überhaupt noch? Tagsüber schlafen die Vampire in ihrem Versteck, nachts sind sie unterwegs durch Santa Cruz (damals in den 80ern das Zentrum der Massenmorde in den USA)... Die ganze Rezension gibts auf cinegeek.de und dazu eine Film List mit den schönsten Horror Filmen der 80er! Viel Spass!
A potential transformation of schlock vampire tale into a kind of Rebel Without a Cause variant on forbidden desire? For the protagonist, a choice between day-walking & night-stalking is a choice between the family (his conventional female love interest; a gypsy waif with child), or his more alluring vampire brethren. The rejection of one lifestyle for another illustrating the film's subtext of psychosexual angst?
God awful in '87 and even worse 25 years on with the ultra 80's gloss, music and fashion in great abundance. A complete hack job starting with the asinine script that the actors can't possibly save and most of them not up to the task to begin with. Only Dianne Wiest comes out unscathed by this one (and to think she won best supporting actress earlier that year for 'Hannah and Her Sisters). Think I'll skip the 50th.
i'm not really into modern vampire actually , but this movie changed my opinion a bit. kiefer shutterland can change the world into vampirism. if hyde not joking abt his will to take a part in a modern vampire movie, he better choose this than rob patz sparkling vampire movie and i still love the classic vampire, go go go gary
