The Lost Boys is a horrifically dreadful vampire teensploitation entry [story by Janice Fischer and James Jeremias] that daringly advances the theory that all those missing children pictured on garbage bags and milk cartons are actually the victims of bloodsucking bikers.

Arriving in a Santa Cruz-like community that is dominated by a huge amusement park, Dianne Wiest and her sons check in at grandpa’s creepy house, and the boys quickly fall in with the wrong crowd.

Latter includes some unhealthy looking punks, led by Kiefer Sutherland, who take older brother Jason Patric back to their lair and through the foxy but wasted Jami Gertz, tempt him into the ways of the undead.

Getting wind of the vampire problem, little brother Corey Haim teams up with two pint-sized Rambos to combat the plague on their houses, and it all ends in a colossal battle with bats, punks, froth, spears and blood flying through the air in a frenzy of nonsensical action.
