    Synopsis


    The Lost Boys
    In this hit '80s hybrid of the horror movie and the teen flick, a single mom and her two sons become involved with a pack of vampires when they move into an offbeat Northern California town. Lucy (Dianne Wiest) and her sons, Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim), move to Santa Carla to live with Lucy's lovable but curmudgeonly father (Barnard Hughes). Lucy gets a job from video-store owner Max (Edward Herrmann), then begins dating him, while Sam hangs out with Edward and Alan Frog (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander), a pair of vampire-obsessed comic-shop clerks. Soon Michael falls in with some actual vampires after becoming enamored of one of their victims: Star (Jami Gertz), a gypsy-like vixen who is trying to hold on to her humanity even though vampire leader David (Kiefer Sutherland) wants to play Peter Pan to her Wendy. When Michael visits the cavernous hangout of David and his cronies and unwittingly drinks from a wine bottle full of vampiric blood, he becomes an unwilling member of the bloodsucker biker gang. Soon, it's up to Sam and the Frog brothers to destroy David and his ilk without killing Michael and Star. Shot on location in the coastal California town of Santa Cruz and directed by Hollywood pro Joel Schumacher, The Lost Boys became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to its attractive young stars, offbeat soundtrack, and hip, clever marketing campaign. The film's tagline -- "Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire." -- perfectly captured its knowing mixture of attitude and gore. The effects team who transformed Sutherland and company into snarling bloodsuckers would go on to provide equally gruesome effects for Blade, another revisionist vampire flick, more than a decade later. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

      If you enjoy this movie at all, it is well worth the buy. Considering the age of the film, it stands up very well. I've had multiple versions of the DVD, including the newest version, and the Blu-ray is far superior. Colors and Contrast are handled near perfect. Black levels are solid as well. The only issue I noticed was a bit of softness in some scenes, but nothing really distracting. I mean, come on! The film is over 20 years old! Without a doubt this is the best this movie is ever going to look. So if you are a fan, buy it!

      Got this in October of 2017, when BB had some cheaper horror out for Halloween. I wish they’d bring back a proper horror section, like in the old days when they used to have Unearthed Films and the like. Either way, it was a treat to see this great (and totally loaded) Blu Ray of a classic fim for $6.

      another 80's teen cr@ppy movie

      casewrench1

      This was a vampire hit from the 80's perfect for teens who are into twilight! Before Bella and Edward (Twilight) there was Michael and Star...An exciting yet cheesy movie about vampires who terrorize a community in California...memorable tunes and one liners. This is one to pick up for the collections also try Fright Night if your into cheesy vampires!!

      If you are an 80's junkie, maybe you'll like this movie. The clothes and haircuts are dated. The music and vampire make-up are dated. The whole film is dated. Too much comic relief does not work. Not enough action. Not scary at all. You'll be better off watching any episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER or ANGEL.

      'The Lost Boys' has obtained quite a cult status over the years, which somewhat surprises me, because it's really not that great of a movie in my opinion. Still, for fans of the cast, and the films cool soundtrack, this special edition is well worth the buy, and features ample bonus materials that were not available on the previous dvd release.

      If you love corey haim or corey feldmen you will love this movie. It's not really scary but a little funny vampire movie. It's very entertaining you would'nt want to miss any of the scenes. I really liked the whole movie. I didn't hate any part of it. I am really glad that they had this movie and I will be back....

      It makes my heart flutter when I find out one of my favorite movies is available as a SteelBook Blu-Ray! This one was only available for shipping and was received in perfect condition absent of any flaws or dents to the case. Kudos to Best Buy for handling it with care!
