The Lost Boys (1987) Revisited – Horror Movie Review

A new episode of our Best Horror Party Movies video series has been released today, under the general “Revisited” / “Horror Movie Review” banner, and in this one we’re building a party around director Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire classic The Lost Boys (watch it HERE). Check the video out in the embed above!

Scripted by Janice Fischer, Jeffrey Boam, and James Jeremias, The Lost Boys has the following synopsis:

Teenage brothers Michael and Sam move with their mother to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward and Alan, the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star — who turns out to be in thrall to David, leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead.

The film stars Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Dianne Wiest, Corey Feldman, Jamison Newlander, Jami Gertz, Kiefer Sutherland, Edward Herrmann, Bernard Hughes, Brooke McCarter, Billy Wirth, Alex Winter, and Chance Michael Corbitt, with an unforgettable appearance by Tim Cappello.

Here’s what the Best Horror Party Movies series is all about:

Welcome to the Best Horror Party Movies where we single out the BEST horror movies to watch with a couple of drinks and some buddies in tow, even if it’s a “watch party”. Hence movies that are intentionally or unintentionally funny, that are extreme, fast paced, goofy, and raunchy – all the fun times toppings in the house! Films you can pay attention to or you can have in the back ground. We even tossed a party game in there, one tailored to each episode’s selection, including recommended “doses” for toasting (or roasting) all the sleaze, cheese, guts and gore you can stuff into your cranium. So get in here and get crazy… ‘cuz it’s a HORROR PARTY!

The The Lost Boys episode of Best Horror Party Movies was Written, Edited and Narrated/Hosted by Gregory Burkart, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
