    - of the 80 and 90s?

    - of all time?

    Honestly, I think it's my favorite of all time. Keefer Sutherland's best work, for sure. This is the vampire film that rings truest to me. It must surely have been a major influence on Joss Whedon's vision for the Buffy universe.

    If you want medieval vampires still neck-biting, then a Dracula film is probably your jam. If you want vampires as gods, then Queen of the Damned may do it for you. But if you want vampires as they might actually exist in a place like Central Park, then it's Lost Boys all the way.

    Agree? Disagree?

I don't hate the movie, by any means. It's awesome fun! And I really don't like those Corey brats. There are just too many great vampire films before and since. Maybe it's the best teen vampire movie. But Fright Night and even Monster Squad actually come close, imo. And honestly, I really don't like how Lost Boys ended.

From Dusk Till Dawn?
Bram Stoker's Coppola's Dracula?
Interview With A Vampire?

Just in the 80s/90s, I would say those were better.

I'm a big fan of the original Nosferatu (the supreme vampire movie of all time, imo). At least a few of those Hammer films? Better than Lost Boys, imo. Frankly, I liked Christopher Lee even more than Legosi.

But yeah, I'd agree that it's probably the best Kiefer Sutherland movie.
