The UK’s leading horror convention, For the Love of Horror will be heading to Bowlers on Saturday 19th & 20th October and they’ve decided to bring almost the entire bloody cast of 1985’s The Lost Boys.

If you’ve never seen it you’ve got a couple of weeks in which to rent it on DVD from Blockbuster and do some serious homework. The story of a family moving to California after their dad goes AWOL, brothers Michael and Sam quickly discover that their new town is a bit… bitey.

Featuring Kiefer Sutherland as the leader of a gang of cool-as-fuck vampires, and Corey Feldman as a not-so-cool vampire hunter (who just happens to be about 12 years old), The Lost Boys did some massive numbers at the time and is still considered to be a classic.

Well, you can now meet most of the stars of the film, many of which went on to bigger and better things. Kiefer Sutherland needs no introduction as he then went on to become Jack Bauer in 24, while Jason Patric went on to star in one of the best films of all time – Speed 2: Cruise Control.

Joining them at Bowlers will be Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston Esq. in Bill & Ted), Jamison Newlander, Billy Wirth, Chance Michael Corbitt, Tim Capello and G Tom Mac – the geezer responsible for the song “Cry Little Sister”.

Also joining them from the non-Lost Boys ranks will be Tony Todd (the Candyman!), Tobin Bell (Jigsaw!) and Bill Moseley (Chop Top in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2!).
