Lost Boys (1987)

This is a favorite among many vampire movie fans, and will almost always pop up on a top ten list of vampire films. This Joel Schumacher film is also pop culture famous because it featured the two Coreys at the height of their teenage heart throb popularity in the late eighties.

Don’t let this scare you away, this is good for a vampire movie, and it is a very traditional story in a modern setting, mixing the two well without bastardizing either. A single mother and her two sons move to a small coastal California town. There are some mysterious deaths, as well as a pesky motorcycle gang. The younger brother makes friends with imaginative boys who claim to be vampire hunters. The older brother falls for a beautiful girl and then begins acting stranger and stranger while exhibiting all the classic signs of vampirism.

Wanting to save his brother, the younger one joins his friends the vampire hunters to search for the head vampire and to destroy it in order to return his brother to normal. An excellent modern vampire tale that is a delight to vampire movie fans.
