About the film:

Winner of the 1988 Saturn Award for Best Horror Film, Schumacher’s iconic vampire horror-comedy is an entertaining blend of visual style and standout performances with a jam-packed 80s soundtrack.

A mother and her two teenage sons move to a seemingly nice and quiet small coastal California town yet soon find out that it’s overrun by bike gangs and vampires. A couple of teenage friends take it upon themselves to hunt down the vampires that they suspect of a few mysterious murders and restore peace and calm to their town.

“sprightly and satirical 80s spin on JM Barrie’s “lost boys”… being forever young isn’t a sweet Edwardian evocation of innocence, but a vision of pure hell”

—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

In the 1990s, he worked on two controversial superhero films Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997). Several of his films competed at major film festivals, including 8MM (1999) at Berlin, Veronica Guerin (2003) at San Sebastián, and Falling Down (1993) at Cannes.
