The Lost Boys, a supernatural dark comedy horror film, was released 35 years ago today!
The Lost Boy was released on July 31st, 1987. Thirty-five years later, we revisit the 80’s classic vampire flick. Joel Schumacher directed the film. It starred Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim, Edward Herrmann, Barnard Hughes, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Dianne Wiest Cult, and Alex Winter. It would go on to gross $32,481,775. The film instantly became a cult classic, and two sequels would spawn decades later, 2008’s LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE and 2010’s LOST BOYS: THE THIRST. Both featured Corey Feldman. You can pick a special 35th anniversary blu-ray here.
Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star (Jami Gertz) — who turns out to be in thrall to David (Kiefer Sutherland), leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead.
