The A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin
Corey Haim plus Corey Feldman plus Joel Schumacher doesn't seem like a foolproof formula for a good movie, but when the three oft-maligned figures united for 1987's horror-comedy The Lost Boys, the result was briskly entertaining.

Empire - Unnamed
The Lost Boys remains a supremely watchable example of something the '80s did right.

The New York Times - Unnamed
The Lost Boys is to horror movies what ''Late Night With David Letterman'' is to television; it laughs at the form it embraces, adds a rock-and-roll soundtrack and, if you share its serious-satiric attitude, manages to be very funny.

Boston Globe - Jay Carr
The Lost Boys is schlock, but it's juicy schlock. [31 Jul 1987, p.34]

Another early youth ensemble pic from St. Elmo's Fire director Joel Schumacher, with an aspiring-to-hipness cast.
