THE LOST BOYS

Part of October Sucks.

New 4K Restoration — Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small coastal California town. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), angst-ridden Michael encounters and falls hard for Star (Jami Gertz), a mysterious bohemian beauty that hangs about town with intimidating gang leader David (Kiefer Sutherland) and his motley crew of stylish ruffians. As Michael falls deeper under the spell of Star and David, Sam and his friends begin to suspect Michael is in danger of falling prey to his mischievous new ‘“blood brothers” — and the boys must formulate a plan to break up the party.

“Schumacher and company introduced MTV vampires: leather-jacket-wearing, hairspray-abusing bloodsuckers who look like they just stepped out of an INXS video, and are ready to resume their role as the most Byronic figures at the mall.” —Nathan Rabin, The A.V. Club

“THE LOST BOYS is to horror movies what ‘Late Night With David Letterman’ is to television; it laughs at the form it embraces, adds a rock-and-roll soundtrack and, if you share its serious-satiric attitude, manages to be very funny.” —Caryn James, New York Times (1987)

“A bloody, ingenious reflection on youth. Joel Schumacher’s vampire romp endures for its wonderfully grown-up treatment of being young…an amazing time capsule for the 80s.” —Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
