First of all, The Lost Boys are about a group of teenage vampires that are killing people down in California. Then this family (a mother and her two sons), move to this town to live with there grandfather who is a little bit crazy. Well, as the movie goes on, the mom falls in love with the leader of the vampires who is an older man, and he has turned the teenage boys into vampires. Then one of the sons gets bit on the neck, and then he turns into a vampire. Of course, he choose to protect his family instead of teaming up with the lost boys. So then it becomes a race against time to vampire proof their house before night time comes. Of course, the mom does not know any of this so it is up to the two sons and their friends. Some of the rules that you learn about during this movie are the same in every vampire movie. Like sunlight hurts them, as does holy water. The best way to kill a vampire is with a piece of wood through their heart. One rule that you may not know about is the rule about vampires coming into your house. This rules states that the vampires are not allowed to come into your house unless the leader of the vampires gets invited in. Of course, because the mom is dating the leader, he does get invited into the house, and things hit the fan from there. The Lost Boys is one of the best vampire movies I have ever watched, and if you have not seen it you have to go rent it.
The Lost Boys is one of those movies that you are going to want to watch over and over. This means that you are going to need to buy it, and not just rent it. This is a movie that has pretty good effects in it, even compared to todays movies. That is really good because so many of the movies today just use special effects to sell a movie, but The Lost Boys also has a great story to go with it; and that is what really matters. If you have not seen it yet, this is a movie that you can go out and rent tonight. I am sure it will be at your local Blockbuster. However, if you want to go ahead and save some money, go out and buy it first, that way you do not waste money on just renting it.
