Ciné-Club: The Lost Boys

Brothers Michael and Sam are new in town and try to make new friends. What if some of them turn out to be vampires? 

If you're looking for inspiration for an 80s glam rock party, look no further than our fourth 80s-summer-coming-of-age film. Shot by Batman Forever director Joel Schumacher, with a soundtrack featuring INXS and Echo & the Bunnymen, The Lost Boys is a perfect mix of teen humour and mock horror - as good as self-pastiches ever got in the 80s. 

Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire.

 

The Lost Boys, Joel Schumacher, 1987, 93 minutes
