Time Out

Directed with a cavalier disregard for intelligibility, this has to be one of the most anaemic vampire flicks ever made.

Did I mention both Coreys are in it?

A supremely watchable example of something the '80s did right.

It laughs at the form it embraces, adds a rock-and-roll soundtrack and, if you share its serious-satiric attitude, manages to be very funny.

The movie may not offer a lot in the way of serious frights or even originality, but it is most definitely weird and decidedly funny.

The Lost Boys is not a movie you want to put in a time capsule or even revisit, unless your name happens to be Corey.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Overdirected and junky, but mildly amusing.

Gothic style, humor and sexy stars -- a cult classic

Shannon J. Harvey
Sunday Times (Australia)

A corn-ball '80s vampire classic! Starring the two Corey's!

| Original Score: 4/5

Frank Ochieng
Movie Eye

A schlocky and stylish teen-oriented gorefest that's humorously off-kilter and frothy--it's something worth sinking your fangs into!

| Original Score: 4/5

Arguably Joel Schumacher's finest film.

When everything is all over, there's nothing to leave the theater with -- no real horrors, no real dread, no real imagination -- just technique at the service of formula.

This is, however, a cinematographer's film and while everyone else seemed to be putting in half-hearted efforts, the cinematographer was working overtime.

It starts slow, but finishes fast with some clever plot twists. In the end, all is not lost with these boys.
