Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire! The Lost Boys was released back in 1987, and starred Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric. The plot saw two brothers who were convinced that their local area was frequented by vampires.

But what have the cast been up to since the film was released, and what do they look like now?

Jason Patric - Michael

Jason Patric was born in 1966, in Queens, New York. Prior to 1987's The Lost Boys, he had only starred in two other films. One was a made-for-TV film called Toughlove (1985) and in 1986 he starred in Solarbabies.

Post The Lost Boys fame, his most notable roles are arguably 1997's Speed 2; Cruise Control, 1998's Your Friends & Neighbors (which he won a Best Supporting Actor at the Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards) and 2007's Expired (which he won a Best Actor award at the Stockholm International Film Festival).

His next project is the 2015 adventure film, Lost & Found which is in post-production.

At the time of writing, Patric is subject to a domestic violence restraining order against his ex-girlfriend, Danielle Schreiber, for disturbing her peace. According to the order, Patric was physically and verbally abusive, making anti-Semitic remarks, and hitting Schreiber with a phone.

Kiefer Sutherland - David

Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (yep, that's right), was born in London in 1966. Before starring in The Lost Boys, he had appeared in a handful of movies, including 1986's Stand By Me.

Following the success of the film, Sutherland starred in fan-favorite Flatliners (1990), Phone Booth (2003) and Mirrors (2008). But it is probably the TV series 24 (2001-2010) that most people will most recognize him from. For his part as Jack Bauer, he has won a Golden Globe, a Primetime Emmy, a Critics Choice Television Award and many more.

In 2007, Sutherland was driving in Los Angeles where he was pulled over by the police. They tested him for alcohol, which he failed, and was subsequently arrested. The test was above the state's legal blood alcohol limit, and he was later released on a $25,000 bail. This was the fourth time that Sutherland was arrested for driving under the influence since 1989. Subsequently, he pleaded no contest to the charge and was given a 48 day term.

In May 2009, Sutherland surrendered to the New York City Police Department for head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo. After a few weeks, Sutherland and McCollough supplied a statement together, where Sutherland apologized; the charges were later dropped.

Corey Haim - Sam

Corey Haim was born in 1971, in Toronto, Ontario. Prior to 1987's The Lost Boys, he had starred in around five other films and a couple of TV series (The Edison Twins (1984-1985) and Roomies (1987).

Following The Lost Boys, he starred in License to Drive (1988) for which he won a Young Artist Award alongside Corey Feldman.

His final project was the 2011 crime drama Decisions.

On March 8, 2010, Haim fell ill with flu-like symptoms. A doctor visited him, where he took his temperature, but did not conclude that there were any serious health problems. During this time, Haim had woken his mother and asked her to lie next to him, as he was not feeling too good.

Two days later, following a 9-1-1 call by Haim's mother, paramedics took Haim to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 a.m.

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office declared that Haim's death was caused by drug induced pneumonia.

He was only 38 years old.

Corey Feldman - Edgar Frog

Corey Scott Feldman was born in 1971, in Chatsworth, California, USA. His illustrious career came well before The Lost Boys was released in 1987. Starring in hits such as The Fox and the Hound (1981), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), The Goonies (1985) and Stand by Me (1986), he became a well-known face to many.

Acting in The Lost Boys in 1987 marked the first on-screen pairing of Feldman and Haim, who became known as "The Two Coreys." The pair went on to star in a string of films, including License to Drive (1988) and Dream a Little Dream (1989).

Post The Lost Boys fame, his most notable roles are arguably 1989's The 'Burbs, 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and 1993's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (both of which he provided the voice to Donatello).

His next project is the 2015 drama film JOB's Daughter.

In February 2005, Feldman was issued an order under the authority of a court. This ordered him to appear to give testimony in a legal case against Michael Jackson in the singer's child molestation trial.

Feldman said;

I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt.

Feldman accused Jackson of ruining his youth by making friends with him and then suddenly dropping him when he became bored. The actor went on to say;

He did real damage in my overall life. I was a 12-year-old boy who was hurt by his family and ignored by people at school. Michael would sit and talk to me for hours and he would listen. Then he would get bored. The biggest thing that Michael's done to children is befriending the ones that are in need and then abandoning them.

Following Jackson's death, Feldman dedicated a Los Angeles hospital concert with his rock band, Truth Movement, to the singer. During the concert, Feldman announced to the crowd that he thought Jackson was watching over the concert, telling People magazine after the show.

It's been really difficult, honestly. I'm all shaken up right now. I had to do a lot of acting, basically, to get through the last 48 hours...It was shocking, and I think I'm still in shock, to an extent. I don't think I have fully, completely come to terms with it yet. I have waves and flashes. One moment, I feel fine and I'm myself. Then all of a sudden, it hits me, and I go, 'Wow, he's really gone.' It's very troubling.

During an interview in 2011, Feldman stated that the biggest secret in Hollywood was pedophilia. He went on to say that both himself and Corey Haim were the victims in the 1980s. The actor also stated that he was once the victim of rape by a man he identified only as "Ron." The man worked as an assistant to Corey's father and Feldman blamed him for facilitating his downward spiral into drug addiction.
