Sam and Michael are going through changes, lots of them.
Their parents have just gotten divorced and they’ve had to move from Phoenix, Arizona to Santa Carla, California. They’ve moved in with their estranged grandfather, an old hippie who has no idea the 60’s are over and their mother has started dating again… and oh yeah; Michael (played by Jason Patric) has fallen in with a bad crowd who just happens to be a gang of vampires who want him to become one too.
After his brother is tricked into drinking the blood of the ‘head vampire’ and becomes a half vampire himself it’s up to Sam (played by Corey Haim) to save him. Thankfully he knows just who to call, Edger and Allen Frog, two vampire hunters ‘under cover’ as a pair of kids helping out in their parents comic book store. Edger and Allen (played by Corey Feldman and Jamision Newlander) advise Sam to kill his brother but when Sam insists that’s not an option they turn to plan B, finding the head vampire and staking his ass.
It’s not going to be easy though since no one is really sure who the head vampire could be. Sam suspects his mother’s new boyfriend, video store owner Max (played by Edward Herrmann) while Michael is sure the leader is the viscous and cunning David (played by Kiefer Sutherland). Not knowing who the head vampire is means going through the gang one stake at a time.
Before they can destroy the vampire gang Michael insists they attempt to save Micheal’s new girlfriend Star (played by Jami Gertz) and little Laddie (played by Chance Michael Corbitt) who are also a pair of half vampires. When the rescue results in the death of one of the vampire gang Sam and the Frog Brothers realize vampire hunting is nothing like in the comic books. They also realize that the hunters have now become the prey.
This classic 80’s vampire flick is non stop fun from start to finish, it also happens to be the first film to feature the ‘Two Coreys’ together. Fast paced and quick witted The Lost Boys should be seen by every vampire fan at least once in their lives.
