The Lost Boys Reviews

David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor

Southern California isn't exactly Transylvania, but the settings are effectively spooky. And there's some amusing satire on the horror-pic genre. The plot is weak, though.

Though there is enough gore in the film to satisfy the typical bloodthirsty filmgoer, its strong suit is deadpan humor.

Schumacher falls far short of the talent for pop wit that Joe Dante showed in Gremlins and The Howling.

Total Film

Joel Schumacher's 1987 teen vampire flick is ageing well. Part of that is down to the sexy blend of bad lads, bloodsuckers, camp comedy and carnage, but the quality of the cast plays a huge part too.

Radio Times

While it's not quite as original or witty as it could have been, this unashamedly glossy take on vampire mythology has a clever script that's packed with twists, and builds to a surprisingly tense climax.

The Lost Boys, which attempts to be funny while preserving the shock value of the vampire legend, aims somewhat higher... and misses.

The Lost Boys is heady, cutting-edge vampire stuff. Mind you, it`s also very tongue-in-cheek. So watch out for those fangs, gang.

It's often sloppy and thinly plotted, but this is, after all, a summer movie, and if it's nothing to really sink your fangs into, it's often very funny.

There's always room for fancy trash, and this movie -- about a gang of punk vampires terrorizing the new kids in town -- seems capable of providing some. Then the characters open their mouths.

Schumacher`s sputtering, short-term approach to the material is a disappointment, because there's something in it that ought to make for a good movie, and from time to time makes The Lost Boys good enough.

Antagony & Ecstasy

That Schumacher handles the transitions between very light horror, comedy, teen romance, and action as well as he does is evidence of a sure hand found nowhere else in his filmography.

...a passable yet unspectacular relic of the 1980s.

A hugely enjoyable picture that proves Joel Schumacher really can direct and that not everything about the 1980s was awful.

Despite its flaws, however, the film is an interesting addition to vampire cinema.

The picture affirms that the only thing truly important is this image of the older brother with his arm around the younger.

With its cool cast and classic kiss-off ending, The Lost Boys will forever be a cultural touchstone of '80s cinema. [Blu-Ray]

Ultimately, this is a film for nostalgic fans and for kids with the appropriate dark leanings, but it's not going to wow anyone else.
