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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A genuine, but flawed attempt to continue the characters stories.
12 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In an interview after The Tribe Feldman said he had taken the criticism on board, and as producer he would address all of it. well, it seems he actually DID. Don't get me wrong, this is still a low budget badly acted DVD movie, but this time they've done a lot of stuff right. It is much better than The Tribe, but it does have some vital ingredients missing causing it to end up being similar in style to John carpenters vampires.

Many people will be pleased to know that there's no "XTREAM" "with it" "youtube generation" surfing vampires. The vampires here are properly updated for today, but unfortunately you don't get to see much of them, even in THE TRIBE we had a chance to meet some of the gang and they came across as mildly threatening, in this movie they pretty much keep to themselves.

Most of the plot revolves around Edgar Frog, his warped childlike obsession with vampire hunting, it occasionally brushes up on the emotional losses of Edgar's friends and there is also a bit of time used to unravel the twisted mess The Tribe left the series in. While the storyline has much more substance than the predecessor it still leaves a lot to be desired, many of the new additions are under written and could have been flesh out a bit more. They did at least try this time, there's a plot twist, which, due to casting was a bit disappointing and one which you can see coming as soon as we're given the pieces to put it together, I was happy to take any kind of plot twist over what the tribe gave us.

The highlight is Jamieson Newlander's extended Cameo as Alan frog, he has a small part but manages to steal the show and left me wanting much more. Don't expect this movie to be the reunion of the frog brothers; they don't go raiding the vampires den together or anything, all Newlander gets is three present day scenes, one newly filmed flashback and some flashbacks to the original movie.

Feldman seems to have slightly toned down his over the top performance, he still hams it up as Edgar, but this time the whole cast seem to be having fun, something lacking from The Tribe. Missing from both the lost boys sequels is any younger kids or teens, In the original movie the kids were written for comic relief, acting like brave men, being the accidental heroes and brave in the face of danger, here because there's no kids, a lot of the comedy is missing. It seems Lost kids don't become vampires anymore.

The movie manages to not take itself too seriously and does get a very small glimmer of an 80's campy movie feel in a few places, though not enough to compare with anything from the original. If you have sat through other Straight to DVD action / Horror movies, you pretty much know what to expect with the acting and pacing (or rather lack of).

To sum things up, The Thirst genuinely attempted to be a follow up rather than a low budget retelling, it's nothing spectacular but it's worth at least one watch.
