The Lost Boys Reviews

December 7, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 21, 2007
Killing bloodsuckers was enough to make Fright Night a hit, and it will probably do the same for the crass, obvious Lost Boys.
February 9, 2006
Directed with a cavalier disregard for intelligibility, this has to be one of the most anaemic vampire flicks ever made.
May 4, 2005
Did I mention both Coreys are in it?
December 19, 2004
For the most part, the movie is goofy fun.
September 15, 2004
A supremely watchable example of something the '80s did right.

August 30, 2004
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.
August 12, 2004
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

A coffinload of DVD extras to sate your Lost Boys bloodlust!
November 12, 2003
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

June 23, 2003
A corn-ball '80s vampire classic! Starring the two Corey's!

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
April 27, 2003
One of the best thrillers of our time...rocks as well as it rolls
| Original Score: 4/5
March 10, 2003
Arguably Joel Schumacher's finest film.
February 16, 2003
Probably the guiltiest of the guilty pleasure vampire flicks.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 1, 2000
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.

January 1, 2000
An exhilarating hybrid of horror and suburban comedy.
January 1, 2000
It starts slow, but finishes fast with some clever plot twists. In the end, all is not lost with these boys.
