The Movie

Sam and his older brother Michael are all-American teens with all-American interests. But after they move with their mother to peaceful Santa Carla, California, things mysteriously begin to change. Michael's not himself lately. And Mom's not going to like what he's turning into.

Starring: Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Barnard Hughes

Directed by: Joel Schumacher

Review

The movie starts painfully slowly, like a kind of poor man's "Rebel Without A Cause"; lots of macho strutting, little action. I thought this was going to be just one more "kewl teen movie" - and let's face it, there's enough of them to keep us going for a while.

I'd almost got to the point of giving up, when the action accellerated, and the humour kicked in. From that point, it was one great movie; funny, fast, and still had a story to tell.

The special effects are good, and not over the top, the acting is OK (sorry, I have an allergy to the Sutherlands, specially in vampire pics). And once the movie got going, the directing and editing are tip top.

I thoroughly recommend this original and intelligent movie; see it!
