A triple bill of adventures. In 'The Lost Boys' two brothers move to a new town and soon fall in with the wrong crowd. Nothing unusual about that, except this group of no-mark punks also happens to be blood-swilling vampires. The older brother (Jason Patric) proves easy prey and is soon a fully paid-up member of the undead. But the younger brother (Corey Haim) is made of tougher stuff and, along with a couple of friends, decides to make a stand. Pretty soon the suburbs start swinging to the sound of teen-vampire combat. 'The Lord of the Rings' (1978) is Ralph Bakshi's animated version of the seminal fantasy trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkein, made by overlaying animation on live action actors (a unique pre-computer graphics technique). Set in the fictional world of Middle Earth, The Lord of the Rings tells the epic story of Frodo, a Hobbit who must defeat the evil figure Sauron who holds the Ring of Power, which controls the fate of all Middle Earth. On the way he and his band of friends and cousins must do battle with Black Riders, a Balrog and various other animated perils. Whilst in 'Highlander' Connor McCloud (Christopher Lambert) is a Scotsman from the Middle Ages who discovers that he cannot be killed in battle. Cast out by his clan (who believe him to be a witch), he is befriended by another Immortal, Ramirez (Sean Connery), who teaches him of the Gathering, a magical event which can be experienced by one of their kind when all the others are slain. Immortals can only be killed by being beheaded, and in the Twentieth century McCloud has only one Immortal left to face in battle - the evil Kurgan.
