When news came out back in 2008 that a sequel to the classic 80s movie, The Lost Boys was going to be made, mixed opinions started to form as to whether it was a good idea and whether it would be any good. It was a straight to DVD release and when I saw Lost Boys: The Tribe, it made an OK movie but didn’t have the originality that the first movie did. We we knew that would happen didn’t we?
Dread Central have now debuted the trailer for the third installment of the Lost Boys franchise, this time called Lost Boys: The Thirst which sees 80s legend, Corey Feldman as Edgar Frog back to fight the vampire once again, this time ably assisted by his brother Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) who we saw in the first movie.
From this new trailer, it looks like an OK movie which has the potential to be better than the second but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I would bet my bottom dollar than this movie will be made in honour of Corey Haim who sadly died earlier this year. You’ll remember him from the original The Lost Boys movie playing the lead role as Sam.
Lost Boys: The Thirst also stars Jamison Newlander, Sean Cameron Michael, Seb Catang, Tanit Phoenix and is directed by Dario Piana.
Synopsis: When veteran vampire hunter Edgar Frog finds himself destitute and almost friendless, he thinks his life has hit bottom – but wealthy vampire-romance novelist Gwen Liebling offers him a small fortune to go on the vampire hunt of a lifetime and rescue her son Peter from the Alpha Vampire D.J.Dusk. With the help of his friends Zoe, Lars, and Blake, Edgar heads into a bloody battle to exterminate evil.
