The Lost Boys ★★ 1987 (R)

Santa Cruz seems like a dull town when Michael, his younger brother, and their divorced mom move into their eccentric grandfather's home. But when Michael falls for a pretty girl with some hardliving friends he takes on more than he imagines—these partying teens are actually a group of vampires. Some humor, some bloodletting violence, and an attractive cast help out this updated vampire tale. Rockfilled soundtrack. 97m/C VHS, DVD . Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Haim, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest, Corey Feldman, Barnard Hughes, Edward Herrmann, Billy Wirth, Jamison Newlander, Brooke McCarter, Alex Winter; D: Joel Schumacher; W: Jeffrey Boam, Janice Fischer, James Jeremias; C: Michael Chapman; M: Thomas Newman.
