âAn exhilarating hybrid of horror and suburban comedy.â â Desson Thomson, Washington Post
âSleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. Itâs fun to be a vampire.â That pretty much sums up the appeal of this fang-banging â80s horror/teen flick mash-up, a vampires-running-amuck-in-Southern California fright flick that dishes up as many laughs as screams âŚ not to mention a pair of teen heartthrobs both named Corey! When a single mom (Diane Wiest) and her teen sons (Jason Patrick and Corey Haim) move from the Midwest to hip and happening Santa Carla, California, the boys find that they have a hard time fitting in - not because theyâre not cool enough (come on, itâs Jason Patrick and Corey Haim!), but because, as it turns out, the âin-crowdâ is actually comprised of a gaggle of leather-clad, blood-thirsty teen vampires (led by a sinister, punked-out Kiefer Sutherland) with nothing to do but suck down the red stuff and listen to New Wave classics by INXS and Echo and the Bunnymen. And when Jason P. falls under the spell of a sexy vampira (Jamie Gertz) and is accidentally turned into a vampire himself, itâs up to young Corey Haim and his new nerd pals The Frog Brothers (Jamison Newlander and Corey Feldman) to save him from an eternity of wearing sunglasses at night. (Dir. by Joel Schumacher, 1987, 97 mins., Rated R) Digital
