The Lost Boys is one of the greatest movies ever made. Now that might be a personal opinion but honestly, it's a movie that is iconic in every way.
From director Joel Schumacher, The Lost Boys was a box-office hit around the world and even to this day remains a huge fan favourite.
We all know how the story goes…
A mother and her two sons move to Santa Carla, a small coast town in California. It also happens to be plagued by bikers, who we discover are actually vampires.
With one brother drawn to the vampires and the other to the side of the vampire hunters, what we get is a thrilling ride of horror, adventure and comedy.
Remember the tagline? Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire.
