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.

It hasn't aged well. At all.

A horrifically dreadful vampire teensploitation entry.
February 9, 2006
Directed with a cavalier disregard for intelligibility, this has to be one of the most anaemic vampire flicks ever made.

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.

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.

Killing bloodsuckers was enough to make Fright Night a hit, and it will probably do the same for the crass, obvious Lost Boys.

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.
January 21, 2014
Schumacher falls far short of the talent for pop wit that Joe Dante showed in Gremlins and The Howling.

The Lost Boys a perfect conglomeration of scary and fun.
January 21, 2014
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.

Scary '80s vamp film. Older teens only.
