By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2014
Format: DVD
"Lost Boys: The Tribe" has the dubious honor of being one of the worst sequels of all time. It's worse than "Troll 2," since it fails to entertain even by accident.

So I am damning "Lost Boys: The Thirst" with faint praise when I say that it is substantially better in every way. This second sequel to the classic 1980s vampire movie at least knows that it's stupid, cheesy and goofy, so it runs all the way -- expect parodies of reality TV and of romanticized vampire teen lit.

While selling comic books to make ends meet, Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman) is approached by Gwen Lieber (Tanit Phoenix), a vacuous writer of teen vampire romances. She has a pretty typical problem: her brother has been kidnapped by the evil DJ X (Seb Castang), who is disguising vampire blood as a new designer drug called "The Thirst." In just a few days, X and his minions will be hosting a rave at a nearby island.

Edgar isn't really interested. But when she says that the alpha vampire will be at the rave, he becomes intrigued by the idea of wiping out all vampires -- and freeing half-vampires like his brother Alan (Jamison Newlander).

With the help of his friend Zoe (Casey B. Dolan), Edgar sets out to the island to take out DJ X. Unfortunately, not only do they have the idiot Gwen along for the ride, but a meathead reality star (Steven van Niekerk) who doesn't believe that vampires actually exist. Will the Frog Brothers finally triumph, or will they free the world from vampires once and for all?

Good news: "Lost Boys: The Thirst" is a much, much better movie than "The Tribe." Bad news: It's... well, it's still not very good.

Great Comeback! Oct. 20 2010
By jamespen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Lost Boys: The Tribe was a horrible movie. It was a blemish on the Lost Boys' series. The Thirst is a major step in the right direction. This film is more of a Frog Brothers film than a Lost Boys film. It's more in the vein of a horror/action picture than a straight horror picture. Honestly, I feel The Thirst kind of has an Expendables feel to it, with a more comedic tone. Feldman and Newlander give very likeable and well-balanced performances. The girl who helps the Frog Brothers fight the vampires also does a great job, and I'd like to see her character reappear if a sequal is made. My only compaint with the Thirst is that the main gang of vampires look like bratty, rich-kid, reality show wannabees. This detail is kind of rectified though, but I won't say anymore. Go watch Lost Boys: The Thirst! It's a great direct to DVD Halloween treat!

The Frog Brothers make the movie! Oct. 15 2010
By The Pants - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Okay, I am not sure how a person would feel about this movie if they didn't grow up loving the original, especially the Frog Brothers.

Personally, I really didn't care for The Tribe. It seemed like they were trying to kind of remake the first one in a way but with a more modern twist. Frankly, I felt like that just didn't work. I had to get it though because it had Edger in it. I was so upset that they left out Alan, MY favorite Frog brother. The Tribe was just a huge let down to me like I figured it would be.

When I saw that they made The Thirst, I thought "Are you serious!? Another one?? How far are they going to try to stretch this?"; then I saw that Jamison Newlander would be in this one as well as Corey Feldman. Well, that did it for me. I had to see the original Frog brothers reunited! I must say, I really enjoyed watching it. The story line was a little corny, but doable. Most of the vampires all die the same way. I think 2 or 3 of them exploded without turning to ash. I didn't really care for the way the voices of the vamps changed when they were bearing teeth. But regardless, everyone keeps changing vampires over the years. Not much you can do about it. Everything was worth it to me just to see the Frog brothers back in action, kicking a$$ and making corny wise cracks when pushing 40. It was a riot! You can tell that Newlander and Feldman had a good time getting back in touch with those characters.

Im A Fan March 2 2011
By Starr R - Published on Amazon.com
Ok so you know, I loved the first installment with the 2 Corey's. I'm a vamp fan ok.

Have now seen the second one, I loved it as well.

But it certainly was nice to see this one. It is different than the first, a bit campy in some places, but if you love vamp movies you will enjoy this installment for so many reasons - the memorial to Corey Haim, little flash backs to him in the first installment, they did a good job of showing Corey Feldman's missing his good friend wishing he was still alive and garnering strength from his relationship with Corey Haim's character Sam (such a great tribute). He was dead in this one and they let you know how he died.

Corey Feldman with his 'brother' Jamison Newlander in the movie certainly stepped up with lots of great thumbs up towards the first movie. At the end they introduced a female werewolf ... yeah!! I personally enjoyed it, hope you do too. And I wish to thank everyone for the nice tribute to Corey Haim, as I have always enjoyed him and Corey Feldman movies.

Impalement IS Good Oct. 15 2010
By AKayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I grabbed this DVD this week against what I thought was my better judgment.
After all, I watched The Tribe twice: Once because it was the long awaited sequel,
again because I was hoping that my first impressions would give way to something
more favorable (they didn't). Despite disliking The Tribe however, I
thought, 'oh what the heck', threw 'The Thirst' in my computer, minimized the
window and proceeded to net surf because, frankly, my intentions were just to
see what was done this time for the sake of morbid curiosity and then leave it
to collect dust. Needless to say I had to max the screen and put everything
else on hold for a time.

I was really, really surprised to come out of this with a good impression.

First, to get something important out of the way:
This IS a low budget direct to DVD release. Keep expectations realistic in that
respect.
I'm not writing this in an attempt to convince both myself and others that it's
better than it was. Yes, the dialogue is cheesy and the situations are campy
(but they are supposed to be!). But yes, there are parts that are borderline bad
(which I'm pretty sure were not supposed to be). Overall however, this is a fun
movie that has the heart of the original in it. Feldman of course is the one who
pulls most of this off, his performance as a vampire hunting wouldbe Rambo is flawless
and genuinely entertaining to watch. I'm writing this because I think this
movie deserves a shot (at the very least a rental), and I know there are likely
MANY people who may not otherwise give this title a second glance because of how
The Tribe turned out - and imo, that would be a shame! (but I digress).

criticisms:

My biggest criticism of the film (and yes it's a big one) has to do with
the vampires. Considering that the original vampires had a unique design, I'm
not sure why they would want to take them away from, well, a traditional 'Lost
Boys' look. It's not that the effects looked any more (or less) fake than the
original, but that they were actually distracting at times. It would have been
a challenge for any of the actors to have been on the same level as Kiefer
Sutherland, but it is virtually impossible when I can't get past their upper
jaw. I felt taken right out of the movie at times because I started
thinking 'what did they do with the teeth?' rather than about what was actually
going on in the scene.

The vampires also could have used more backstory to make them more interesting.
One of the reasons the original Lost Boys was good was because the
audience could identify, at least on some level, with both the heroes and
villains. The vampires were 'cool', but they were also motivated by emotions
that were easy to relate to - like jealously, or the desire for some kind of
family (albeit an extremely dysfunctional one). To put it another way, I could
believe in David and Max, I couldn't really believe in DJX (and I think this
has to do as much with the movie as it does with not being 9 years old
anymore). I was never told why he wanted to do what he did, and didn't
particularly care to any significant degree either.

The above said, it's pretty much unfathomable to me as to why the writers did
not invest more time into developing Alan's character. During this movie I had
at least a dozen questions about his character leap into my brain, and with very
little difficulty could probably come up with over 100. Yet they tell us
virtually nothing WTF? It's very hard to imagine that the writers somehow
overlooked that *there is a good 5 year stretch of time of probable interest to
the movie's fanbase. Regardless of being deprived of answers to 99% of these
questions, I'd say it's a positive thing to leave the movie asking 'why didn't
they do this?' rather than (as I did with The Tribe) 'Why did they do this at
all?". If there HAD been a character on the 'opposing' team even half as
interesting and with half as much heart as Feldman's Frog, then this movie would
easily have gotten 4 stars from me

Not a Sequel...a Spin Off Jan. 27 2011
By Lisa L. Linderman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was a fan of the original Lost Boys back when it first came out. I watched The Tribe a few years ago, and yow. Bleah. Not a good movie. Not a good script, mediocre acting. Only thing I enjoyed from it was what they did with the Frog Brothers. And now, someone has made a movie that took that bit and ran with it. Awesome.

This is not a sequel, really. It's a spinoff. It's about Edgar and Allen. It has flashbacks from the original movie, and briefly discusses what happened with the other major characters from the first movie. It's campy, and it's hilarious. If you're looking for a serious horror movie, look elsewhere. If you're looking to relive your childhood memories of Lost Boys, that isn't going to happen, this isn't that movie. These vampires don't sparkle, but the dialogue does take a repeated poke at people who like sparkly vampires. And the dialogue...I have to completely disagree with the people who say the writing sucked. It was clever. The dialogue flowed well, even through the campy lines. It reminded me more than once of a less-polished Joss Whedon, and I don't say that lightly, as I love Joss' work.

It's not highbrow intellectual cinema, but it doesn't try to be. The production values are moderate, the acting is pretty hit or miss. I also disagree with those who assess Feldman's acting as "bad". If you just don't like Corey Feldman, and it seems there are a lot who don't, why would you watch it? It's hilariously overwrought, and meant to be so. Wait, I know what it is. It's a live action comic book. It's a series of charicatures of recognizable types, like the Cute Smart Sidekick Girl, the Loner Hero With A Troubled Past, the Weird Guy With All The High Tech Weapons. It's cheesy good fun. Reminded me a bit of movies like They Live, or Hell Comes to Frogtown, only this had much better writing and acting (sorry, Roddy.)
