About the Film The Lost Boys

The Lost Boys was released in 1987. The name is inspired by Peter Pan and his group of friends who call themselves the lost boys. It is meant to show that Vampires never age. The story is about two boys moving to a fictional town in California with their mom. They move in with their eccentric grandpa after their mother's divorce.

The boys decide to hang out at the town's boardwalk (the iconic Santa Cruz boardwalk) which they find is wallpapered with posters of missing persons. As Micheal becomes intrigued by a girl he sees on the boardwalk dating a leader of a local gang, Sam the younger brother, meets two vampire hunters in the local comic book store. 

Micheal the older brother ends up hanging out with the members of the gang and gets involved in vampire activity without realizing it. Sam soon discovers Michael's plight as he begins the transition after trying to attack his little brother. Sam then begins to look for ways to help his brother reverse the transition into a vampire.
