The Lost Boys is a nice balance of the genres, thus appealing to wide tastes. The film is fun, and not too frightening, and delivers lines with impeccable timing.

The Lost Boys a perfect conglomeration of scary and fun.

The Lost Boys fulfilled my recurring fantasy about having an adventure with my friends.

A master mold of horror and comedy...

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.
January 21, 2014
Though there is enough gore in the film to satisfy the typical bloodthirsty filmgoer, its strong suit is deadpan humor.
January 21, 2014
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.

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 is heady, cutting-edge vampire stuff. Mind you, it's also very tongue-in-cheek. So watch out for those fangs, gang.
January 21, 2014
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.

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.

Scary '80s vamp film. Older teens only.

October 20, 2009
A hugely enjoyable picture that proves Joel Schumacher really can direct and that not everything about the 1980s was awful.
October 20, 2009
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]
