Kiefer Sutherland heads the great fresh-faced young cast in this winning mix of vampire horror and humour. 4/5 stars
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.
