    Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It`s fun to be a vampire!
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 93 mins
    Retail Price: £15.99
    Release Date:

    Sam and his older brother Michael are all-American teens with all-American interests. But after they move with their mother to peaceful Santa Carla, California, things mysteriously begin to change.

    Michael`s not himself lately. And Mom`s not going to like what he`s turning into. `The Lost Boys` reshapes vampire tradition, deftly mixing heart-pounding terror, rib-tickling laughs and a body-gyrating rock soundtrack.

    Under Joel Schumacher`s direction, a marvellous cast - Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Keifer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, Corey Haim, Barnard Hugh and Edward Herrmann - takes you to gleefully ghoulish entertainment.

    I`m a big fan on this movie and it just reminds of the good 80`s feeling.Those who like Goonies and that`s sort of movies should like this one, even Goonies is much more better.The transfer was better than i thought, but far from the best.
    Rent this if you haven`t seen, or buy if you`re a collector of legendary 80`s movies, like I.

    Wasn't really very impressed with the film itself, after watching it for the first time on DVD. While I'd consider myself open to most films, especially a vampire flic - this one failed to impress. It just failed to hold my attention, I found myself checking the time remaining on the disc so I could get on with doing (or watching) something else. never a good sign!!

    The video and audio are both fine, but the extras are a little thin on the ground. The back cover promises only a trailer and production notes. But I still got excited by what appeared to be more options in the special features menu - but alas, they were only 3 different sets of production notes. Although I did like the menus - I thought that at least a little thought had gone into them!
