Reviewing The Lost Boys

To begin, I’d like to start off by saying how this is my absolute favourite film of all time! I love the concept of vampires in Santa Carla going on hunts for blood to sustain themselves and recruiting people to join their “cult”. It’s a great starter horror film for anyone who’s just getting into the horror genre. I really love this movie because of how the whole plot folds out. I think there was great imagination that went into it and I like how they make you think a lot about what’s going on. Basically, the whole thing that’s going on is there’s a gang of vampires who we think is being led by the “head vampire” David who seems to be taking control over the whole situation and we meet 2 brothers Sam and Michael and Michael starts turning weird and having all the symptoms of a vampire. Eventually, it just turns into a whole fight to the death to expand the gang and get more people involved to have a massive vampire family. It’s a pretty crazy film but I love it so much.

I really enjoy the soundtrack with the songs “Cry Little Sister” by Gerard McMann and “Lost in the Shadows” by Lou Gramm. This body-gyrating rock soundtrack really sets the theme of the film and I love the songs so much that I have them all in my playlist and I listen to them regularly.

I really know that you would enjoy the film a lot! You definitely won’t regret investing time and money into purchasing this. It comes highly recommended on my list. Please do yourself a favour and watch it!!
