Editorial Reviews

Once upon a time, a boy named Ray Pye put crushed beer cans in his boots to make himself taller. But this is no fairy tale: For suburban sociopath Ray (Marc Senter) and his friends, small-town life is a dead-end road of sex, drugs, liars and losers. And what begins with a sudden act of senseless violence will climax in a mind-blowing frenzy of depravity…with the worst still yet to come.
Michael Bowen (Kill Bill), Dee Wallace-Stone (The Hills Have Eyes), Ed Lauter (True Romance), Megan Henning (Seventh Heaven), Katie Cassidy (Black Christmas) and Erin Brown (aka Misty Mundae) co-star in this controversial shocker adapted from the infamous novel by Jack Ketchum and based on the true story that stunned America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another brutal Ketcham adaptation November 30, 2008
Format:DVD
Derived from some shocking homicides during the 60's, The Lost is an abrasive character study of a sociopath who committed some terrifying random acts of violence.
Meet Ray, a young man lost in his own warped world of frustration and insecurities. He hangs out with younger kids that will look up to him. Ray buys them beer, boasts about his sexual conquests, even stuffs objects in his boots to make himself look taller. But in actuality, he's a frail, pitiful loser harnessing some pent up rage. And when it explodes, look out.
The acting in this movie is adequate, but it's the horrendous acts themselves that keep you riveted. Plus there is plenty of nudity as it also explores a dark realm of unabated sexuality. It all culminates into an utterly vicious and frightening climax that will make you feel helpless and vulnerable right along with the victims.
Not recommended to the faint of heart. A must-see if you enjoyed the horror film The Girl Next Door.

I read the novel several months ago, and let this DVD sit around my house looking for the opportune time to watch it. When the kids were finally away for a little while I popped it in, and have to say... I was a bit disappointed. The short summary of the story for those who have not read the book: Ray Pye is a slightly off kilter young man in his early 20's who on a random whim kills two young women while camping. Now 4 years later the police know it was him but can not prove it. Ray's two friends who know about the killings are slowly destroying themselves with drugs and alcohol, but their obsession with the murderous Pye is as strong as ever. When the rejection of several women in town finally sets Ray off, he begins a murderous rampage.

The Good:
-The violence is all there, brutal and on screen.

-All of the sex is there almost to the point of soft core porn. Ray is apparently quite the ladies man.

-In respect to events, this film sticks very closely to the book.

The Bad:
-The time frame is gone, the book takes place in 1969... this is easy to tell because they follow the Sharon Tate case through the book. In the film, some of the people are dressed from the 90's, some from the 60's, Ray looks like a combination of a 50's greaser and an 80's punk with too much eyeliner. The Sharon Tate information seems to be out of kilter because there is no sense of time other than that reference.

-Ray Pye's Mole and Makeup are distracting to the viewer, with him being the only male in the film wearing eyeliner, and that ridiculously huge mole that seems to have been played up... you're eyes tend to focus on the mole and miss the rest of the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can Stay Lost December 4, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a shame because there is something to chew on here and too much of it was left on the table.

It's 1965 in northern New Jersey and Ray Pye kills, for absolutely no real reason, two young girls who are there camping. Pye was with his girlfriend and buddy. Four years later he's still the chief suspect in the case but not enough evidence is available to nail him to the wall. He's a nut job and certain things are starting to happen that are pushing him over the edge. He pops a cork and goes on a killing spree.

Taken from a Jack Ketchum novel, that was based on a real case, this story is about Ray Pye. He has no father and does menial work at the motel his mom owns. He's short but good looking and somewhat (almost Charles Manson-like) charismatic. His closest friends do his bidding unquestioningly. But he's screwed up. This is one of the strengths of the movie. Shay Astor does a decent job as Pye. He's creepy. He's the bomb you're waiting to go off. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near him. He's the only one that is written well. The other characters are Okay but don't amount to much more than sketches.

A previous viewer mentioned how the details, such as the music, didn't fit the time in which this happened. This is a fair criticism. One of the things that made the movie "Zodiac" so good was how well hey depicted the time. There was none of that here. Cars, clothing, hairstyles, etc., were nearly nondescript. This might have been due to budgetary restraints. This is not an expensive movie, which might account for the lousy sound mixing and musical score. The volume levels were all over the place and some of the music included heavy metal which I'm pretty sure wasn't around in 1965. The directing was uneven at best. The ending was terrible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost in Translation April 12, 2008
Format:DVD
Jack Ketchum's novel from which this film has been adapted (The Lost) was set during the mid to late 1960s. The film version is a little more ambiguous as regards when the story occurs. Modern cars and cordless telephones are much in evidence, but the central character, Ray Pye (Marc Senter), has a definite retro look about him. With his immaculately coiffured hair and discreetly applied make-up, there's something of Alex from `A Clockwork Orange' about him. He believes himself to be the epitome of cool; a party animal that the slightly younger kids are in awe of.

Only two, Jennifer and Tim (Shay Astar and Alex Frost), know that Ray is a cold-blooded murderer. The film opens with his brutal slaying of two young women (Erin Brown and Ruby LaRocca) at a local campsite. It is this event that casts its shadow across the remainder of the story, reaching, years later, into the lives of several of the inhabitants of the town of Sparta.

Although the film is a faithful retelling of the novel in terms of events, there is, I suppose necessarily, something lost in terms of characterization. This is particularly true of Detective Charlie Schilling (Michael Bowen), Ed Anderson (Ed Lauter) and Sally Richmond (Megan Henning). Retired police officer Ed Anderson has recklessly embarked on a love affair with Sally, an eighteen-year-old student. Their relationship is not explored in any depth and Ed's rollercoaster feelings of guilt and elation are nowhere near as prominent in the film as they were in the novel. Similarly, Schilling's obsessive angst at the police's failure to nail Ray Pye for the double murder is not apparent enough.

Speechless. Just speechless. What a brilliant, sick film for those of us so inclined. So very real, I thought Larry Clark (KIDS) directed it.

Another adaption of a Jack Ketchum book. Shows us how fragile the human way of thinking is and how we are affected by life's events.
