“People are strange, when you’re a stranger.”

Its always difficult when your parents get divorced. Add to that having to move with your mother and older brother, oh and your moving in with your eccentric grandfather. Did we mention that gramps lives in wonderful Santa Carla, which just happens to be the murder capital of the world. What makes Santa Carla the murder capital of the world is the one thing that gramps could never stomach…all the damn vampires.

Mike and Sam are just trying to make the best of a bad situation. Sam befriends the Frog brothers and they inform him that the town is crawling with blood suckers. Meanwhile Mike falls in with a bad crowd, they show him their hangout where he drinks Davids blood thinking its wine. Did I mention that David is a vampire. Side effects of drinking a vampires blood include: aversion to sunlight, sensitivity to sound, loss of reflection and ability to fly. The brothers Frog tell Sam if he wants to save his brother from becoming a suckhead they must kill the head vamp…if only they knew who that was.

The Lost Boys is one of those great 80’s movies that was able to mix horror with just the right amount of laughs thrown in the mix. I know Joel Schumacher directed it, which makes it even harder for me to say good things about it (I still hold a grudge after the Batman fiasco) but I really do enjoy this film with its all star cast and amazing special effects. For those reasons and more The Lost Boys gets a rating of: Theres no Tinker Bell here. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
