This is one of the best horror movies for kids and young teens ever made. It’s got it all – vampires, 80s music and the two coreys.
The story concerns a boy and his older brother who are the new kids in town. But this is a town like no other – Santa Carla, California. It’s got the highest rate of teen murders in the whole of the USA, and the boys quickly figure out why. It’s infested with vampires.
Jason Patric falls in with a bunch of punks and bikers who may or may not be vampires. Corey Feldman makes friends with a group of boys who want to hunt down the vampires and put a stake in thri hearts. Teen Vampires Vs Teen Vampire-Hunters. Let’s Roll!!
This is the movie that updated the vampire chic and gave us 80s-style MTV vampires – leather-jacket-wearing, hairspray-abusing bloodsuckers who look like they just stepped out of an INXS video. Drawing on a cleverly constructed, well-paced script immersed in vampire lore, the cast members who aren’t named Corey all deliver memorable performances. When blended this smoothly, comedy and horror prove as winning a combination as Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
