In the beginning scenes, brothers Michael and Sam travel by car with their recently divorced mom, Lucy, to their new home in California. After that, it was difficult to decide what, exactly, was happening. A whirling vacuum motion kept sucking people into the air, as though strange abductions took place helicopter-style. Actors screamed as they followed car hoods and flying debris into oblivion. Later, however, the movie showed a beach scene where party-goers screamed as that same whirlwind-like disturbance swirled sand around them and then vampires suddenly appeared to sink fangs into their skulls.
What really made this movie worth watching, in my opinion, was all the humorous dialog.
EXAMPLES OF HUMOROUS QUOTES:
The movie also features a lot of slapstick humor, such as when a teen couple are presented in what may become a make-out scene, since they're sitting in back of a car at what seems to be a lookout point. She's laughing over a comic book. He's trying to kiss her. She smack's him alongside the head. Then the winds come.
Then, when the film focuses more on the vampires, things get a little creepy. A beautiful young teen is dominated by her loser-boyfriend and it makes the viewer wonder why her mom never taught her to "Say No To Thugs!"
Because this movie was filmed in the 1980's you'll see rotary dial phones, nerdy kids on stingray bicycles and ongoing arguments over which comic-book toting young boy can protect whom. When the geeky boys enter the vampire hotel it's an abandoned warehouse decorated with rotted linen curtains.
After, teen-age Michael, main character, drank from a fascinatingly hand-decorated wine-bottle that a ring-leader "lost boy" passed his way, stoner-like euphoria results and Michael realizes he just consumed vampire blood. Next? He's having serious anti-gravity issues.
