Storyline

In San Cazador, California, the clumsy vampire hunter Edgar Frog is evicted from his trailer. But the best-seller writer Gwen Lieber offers him a job to destroy the head vampire DJ X that promotes worldwide raves to increase his army of undead. Gwen tells that her brother Peter disappeared in Ibiza two years ago in an X-Party promoted by the alpha-vampire. Now DJ X is coming to San Cazador to promote a sacrifice during a party in the blood moon on the next Friday, and Edgar discovers that the rave will take place in a slaughterhouse on an island. Gwen hires also the Hollywood participant of reality show Lars von Goetz that comes with the cameraman Claus. Edgar invites his brother Alan to join the team but he declines, and he teams up with his friend Zoe. When the group finds DJ X, Edgar discloses a secret about the head-vampire.

More of a spin-off than a sequel.
12 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you go into this movie expecting something that directly compares to the original then you will be disappointed. It's not The Lost Boys as you remember and if you are looking for something comparable to the original in terms of story, atmosphere or style then you're unlikely to find what you're looking for in this film.

What we have instead is something that feels more like a spin-off rather than a direct sequel. Following the now grown up vampire hunter Edgar Frog (who you may remember from the first film as the young head band wearing vampire expert and comic store dweller that befriended and aided Sam and his family in the original Lost Boys) the film takes on a tone and style to match the lead character's somewhat over dramatic personality rather than attempting to directly imitate that of the original. It's cheesy, the acting is oh-so hammy and more often than not so over the top you're really not sure if it's intentional or not, but it fits the character of Edgar Frog and is about what I would have expected from a film with a comedic supporting character promoted to the lead.

Feldman plays the character of Edgar Frog as a more exaggerated version of the character we met in the original film, complete with a comical gruff voice and over-the-top tough guy persona - it's silly, but it fits and the scripting often plays to the inept hero quality of the character. The vamps are back and retain the characteristics and appearance of those in the original, but they lack the character, personality and depth of Sutherlands gang and instead simply serve as somewhat two dimensional bad guys - perhaps one of the biggest failings and disappointments of the film. The supporting characters are likewise cheesy and ham up their roles accordingly, some of the acting is downright terrible (Tanit Phoenix), but it's passable and even borders on amusingly bad at times.

On the whole, it's not a bad film (or perhaps it is.. but in the right way) nevertheless, it's bound to leave a bad taste in the mouth of anyone hoping for or expecting more of the original. As a sequel it's pretty poor, as a spin off it's really not too bad.
