The Lost Boys is one of the most popular depictions of vampires in horror movie history. It’s an 80s cult classic that has stood the test of time for its representation of jaded teenage angst and family values set against the backdrop of a small summer beach town infected with an epidemic of bloodthirsty vampires.

There’s also an extremely loyal, adorable Husky (go Team Nanook!) and a sexy sax man. You simply cannot lose with this film.

The Lost Boys follows brothers Michael and Sam as they move with their recently divorced mother to the small Californian beach town of Santa Carla. Michael (Jason Patric) – being the older of the two brothers – becomes infatuated with a mysterious local girl named Star (Jami Gertz). Unfortunately for Michael, Star runs with a pretty rough crew. After a night with the strange yet alluring group, Michael wakes up with a sensitivity to sunlight and a thirst for blood.

It’s up to his brother Sam (Corey Haim) and his new friends, self-proclaimed vampire hunters, the Frog brothers, Edgar and Alan (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander, respectively), to save Michael from his fate as a vampire.

Whether you watch this movie for the 80s fashion flare, the scary-but-totally-crush-worthy Kiefer Sutherland, or the iconic gem of a theme song (“Cry Little Sister” by Gerard McMann), you should definitely watch this movie.
