‎The Lost Boys (1987) Proves to Still Have Bite

When I am in a mood for a horror/teen/comedy movie I always consider Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys as one of my top 5 choices. First of all I love the cast. I find the appearance of Dianne Wiest amazing as the mother of Jason Patric and Corey Haim. She proves that she can manage with success every role she plays. I also find Kiefer Sutherland very good at his role as the leader vampire. Last but not least the grand father Barnard Hughes has a small part in the movie but a very special and funny one.

A divorced mother with her two sons moves in a small town to live in a house with her old father. There something strange is going on. Flyers with missing persons are everywhere. Gangs and restless people creating troubles all the time and make local people’e life miserable. The young boys discover the dark secret of the town with a very bad way. The oldest becomes a member of the most dangerous and vicious gang without his will. His younger brother try to help him as much as he can but things keeps getting worse and worse. Their mother doesn’t seem to understand the danger for herself and for her 2 sons even though the signs are everywhere. I won’t say more because I don’t want to be a spoiler for those who haven’t seen it yet, even though I hope there aren’t too many.
