  • The Lost Boys: Friday the 13th Write-Off

    Sep 13, 2002 by AliventiAsylum is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: performances by Sutherland & Patric, good modern portrayal of vampires
    Cons: quality of special effects has to be taken in context of the times

    Summary: At the time this movie was released in 1987, the cast were virtual unknowns. I can remember going to see it in the theater and coming out having been frightened out of my wits - but it had a charming, comic quality to it as well. I also developed a ... read more

    Pros: Great casting. The characters were awesome. The storyline is very original.
    Cons: I can honestly say that I have nothing bad to say about this movie.

    Summary: This movie is a classic. In the 1908's you couldn't mention Vampires or vampire movies without mentioning "The Lost Boys." It was an icon among it's kind. Back when there was a time before young looking vampires with sparkles, there were "real" vampires. ... read more

    Pros: Fun vampire flick.
