Suther­land vamps it up in 80s classic

The Lost Boys BBC1, Fri­day at 10.45pm ●●●● ●

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Watchlist -

This eight­ies-tas­tic vam­pire hor­ror was a real favourite of mine grow­ing up.

The late Joel Schu­macher rarely di­rected any­thing bet­ter and it’s great to see an un­hinged Kiefer Suther­land go­ing all in on the wacky tone.

Sure the hair­styles and fash­ions will cause some head shakes, but The Lost Boys oth­er­wise holds up re­ally well.

Coreys Haim and Feld­man are ex­cel­lent and the sunny Cal­i­for­nian set­ting adds a sense of sweaty claus­tro­pho­bia.

Plus points also go to the sound­track – one of the finest in the his­tory of cin­ema.
