This 1980s grown up take on the ‘Lost Boys’ featuring bad-boy teenage vampires on motorbikes shaking up a sleepy Californian town became an instant cult classic.
Michael (Jason Patric) and his kid brother, Sam (Corey Haim), have arrived in a new town with their mother, Lucy (Dianne Wiest), following her divorce. On the boardwalk, Michael becomes fascinated with a beautiful girl, Star (Jami Gertz), who hangs out with a weird and charismatic biker gang led by David (Keifer Sutherland). But why does the gang only come out at night? Young Sam learns the truth from local vampirologists and so begins a battle between the innocence and evil of youth.
A great film for 80s nostalgia enthusiasts.
