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.

Eye for Film

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
