‘Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old!’
Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in comic-book geeks Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), the angst-ridden Michael soon gets involved with a local gang of vampires led by David (Kiefer Sutherland). Sam and his new friends must find a way to save Michael from the undead.
We always like to play something spooky at Halloween, this will be our first vampire film and it’s a good one. Part horror, part teen comedy, this film quickly became a cult classic due to it’s great cast, off beat soundtrack and clever marketing campaign. Experience it how it should be, on the big screen with friends!
