Released in 1987, The Lost Boys was one of the most popular horror films of the 80s. Starring Corey Feldman, Corey Haim, Jason Patric, Keifer Sutherland, Jamie Gertz, and Dianne Wiest is the story of a mother and her two teenage sons move to a seemingly nice and quiet small coastal California town yet soon find out that it’s overrun by bike gangs and vampires. A couple of teenage friends take it upon themselves to hunt down the vampires that they suspect of a few mysterious murders and restore peace and calm to their town.
Scary, funny, sexy, and action-packed, The Lost Boys made modern vampires seem cool. With the leader of the vampire sect, Keifer Sutherland, calling the shots while being stalked by kids with nothing to lose. Look for Alex Winter (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) as one of the vampires. The Lost Boys may or may not be the ultimate 80s Halloween movie depending on each person’s personal taste and opinion, but it certainly ranks as one of the top Halloween favorites for fans of the 80s.
