Kiefer Sutherland heads the great fresh-faced young cast in this winning mix of vampire horror and humour

Kiefer Sutherland heads the great fresh-faced young cast in this winning mix of vampire horror and humour.

Dianne Wiest and her two teenage sons, Jason Patric and Corey Haim, move to the seaside town of Santa Clara - the 'murder capital of the world'.

Sutherland and his ghoulish biker gang could have something to do with all the missing people, Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander are a couple of fearless vampire hunters and vampire Alex Winter suffers the most catastrophic exit when he tumbles into a bath of holy water.

Much of the dizzy night-time action centres on the town's boardwalk funfair and, filmed at a cracking pace with the inevitable heart-stabbing climax, this movie looks great and is hugely entertaining.
