These Vampires don't suck!

Plot; A recently divorced Mother and her two Sons move to a small town where Vampires are more than just a myth.

Stylish and efficient aren't two words you often use together when describing a movie, but they certainly fit here. Another word that fits is fun. Oh it falls prey to a bit of 80ishness (I'm looking at you muscled up, heavily oiled saxophone player), but in my opinion it's all the better for it.

Featuring a top-notch cast and a killer, spot-on soundtrack, The Lost Boys may be about Vampires, but it certainly doesn't suck.

Campy Vampy flick

Even though I was 13, when this movie came out in 1987, I haven't watched it until now, 30 years later and 30 years older.

I can forgive the cheesiness of Lost Boys, because it's meant to be a comedy. Although it's not very funny. Unlike the serious attempt at a vampire movie from the same year: Near Dark, this movie knows its bad and doesn't try to be anything else. That it's not complete amateur, is because it's produced by Richard Donner and directed by Joel Schumacher and has, later on major stars in it, like Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric.

What I cant forgive, however is that these vampires eat food and need light to see in the dark. Vampires are nocturnal creatures that only need to drink blood to stay "alive". And they have nightvision.

But I would have preferred a darker more serious vampire movie. Knowing what a great actor Kiefer is and how menacing he can be and was in Stand by me, that came out in 1986, a year before TLB I felt cheated here. Not to mention the fact that he wasn't in the movie nearly enough. But he was busy that year, also appearing in Young Guns, where he is much better. So it's not like he wasn't famous at the time.

Another actor that also appeared in Stand by me, was Corey Feldman. Like Kiefer he was also much better in Stand By Me.

The effects are bad, but could be much worse. At least they don't attempt to show the vampires flying.

There is a twist at the end of the movie that will be seen coming a mile away.

I would have loved this when it came out, but I guess I'm too old now. I love vampire movies, but I prefer the first Blade movie and the first two Underworld movies. If I'm gonna enjoy a vampire movie it has to be believable and dark and gory. Even though this is R- rated, there is very little blood and no swearing.

This was watchable but also forgettable.

The Lost Boys

It was coming up to the 30th anniversary of this well-known and popular 80s movie, and I was really annoyed I had never seen it before, so I'm glad I finally made an effort to get my hands on it, directed by Joel Schumacher (St. Elmo's Fire, Falling Down, Batman Forever, Phone Booth). The title is a reference to the Lost Boys in Peter Pan, who, like the vampires, never grow up. Basically the Emerson brothers, Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim), from Arizona have moved to the small beach town of Santa Carla, California, with their recently divorced mother Lucy (Dianne Wiest), to live with their eccentric Grandpa (Barnard Hughes). While Lucy finds herself a job working in a video store run by local bachelor, Max (Edward Herrmann), Michael and Sam explore the boardwalk, there Michael becomes fascinated with young woman Star (Jami Gertz). While Michael follows Star, despite her seeming to be in a relationship with mysterious young biker gang leader David (Kiefer Sutherland), Sam meets the Frog brothers, Edgar (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), a pair of self-proclaimed vampire hunters, who give him horror comic books to warn him of the threat infiltrating the town. Michael finally talks to Star, but David goads him into following the biker gang to their hangout, a sunken luxury hotel beneath a dangerous cliff, he is initiated into the group. Star warns Michael not to drink from an offered bottle, telling him it is blood, but Michael ignores this, then he, David and the others head to the a railroad bridge, they hang off the edge over a foggy gorge, one by one letting go and falling down, and Michael follows. The next day Michael wakes up unaware how he got home, his eyes are sensitive to sunlight and has a craving for blood, leading him to attack Sam, with the dog Nanook retaliating, and seeing his semi-transparent reflection, Sam realises Michael is turning into a vampire. Michael convinces his terrified brother he is not yet a vampire, he needs his help, Michael slowly develops supernatural powers and also asks Star for help, they have sex. Meanwhile Sam deduces that Michael is half-vampire, his condition can be reversed by killing the head vampire, Sam and Frog whether it is Max that is the head vampire when he is invited to dinner by Lucy, but Max passes every test, so the boys decide to focus on David. David provokes Michael into killing, they stalk a group of beach goers, Michael is horrified when he instigates a feeding frenzy, he escapes and returns home, there Star reveals she is also a half- vampire looking to be cured, she reveals David had intended Star to seal her fate as a vampire, with Michael being her first kill. The next day, Michael is weakening, so Sam and the Frog brothers go looking for the vampire gang's lair, they find them all hanging and sleeping above, they impale vampire Marko (Bill & Ted's Alex Winter), awakening David and the others, but the boys escape into the sunlight, rescuing Star and half-vampire child Laddie (Chance Michael Corbitt). That evening while Lucy is on a date with Max and the grandfather is out, the teens arm themselves with water pistols filled with holy water, garlic cloves, a longbow and stakes, they barricade themselves in the house. Night falls and David's gang attack the house, one of the vampires is killed by the Frog brothers and Nanook, pushed and dissolved in a bathtub filled with garlic and holy water. Vampire Dwayne (Billy Wirth) attacks Sam, who manages to shoot an arrow his heart, it penetrates a stereo behind him, the electrocution causes his body to explode. Michael is then attacked by David, forcing him to use his vampire powers, he manages to overpower David, he is killed being impaled on a set of antlers, but Michael, Star and Laddie do not transform back to normal as expected. Lucy returns home with Max, he reveals himself as the head vampire, the previous invite into the house rendered him powerless, Max's objective was to have Star be the mother to his lost boys. As Max pulls Lucy to him and prepares to turn her into a vampire, Grandpa crashes his jeep through the wall of the house, Max is impaled by a wooden fence post, killing him and causing him to explode. In the end, Michael, Star and Laddie return to normal, and amongst the carnage and debris, Grandpa casually grabs a drink from the refrigerator, and says "One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach: all the damn vampires". Also starring Brooke McCarter as Paul. Sutherland is charismatic and cool, but equally menacing as the leader of the gang, and Haim and Feldman make an amusing duo, the other actors all do their parts fine as well, it is a fairly predictable story and not as witty as it could have been, but it's a good alternative teen movie, filled with laughs, plenty of violence, and with suspense and twists along the way, an interesting horror comedy. Worth watching!
