Mediocre sequel to classic of the 80s is packed with chills, thrills and lots of gore
This follow-up and straight to video movie concerns a siblings couple named Chris and Nicole ( Hilgenbrink , Autumn Reeser ) moves to Luna Bay at house their aunt ( Gabrielle Rose ). At the little town Chris , a notorious surfer , attempts to encounter an employment . There they meet a pack of bloodsuckers led by Shane Power ( Angus Sutherland, Donald's brother ) and underlings . Then the brothers unsuccessfully seek out the vampire hunter Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman ) in his trailer and Chris leaves a message for him. They go to Shane's party and Nicole stays with Shane and drinks booze offered by him . After that , she becomes a half-vampire and Edgar advises that she drank vampire's blood and can only be saved if the head-vampire is killed by means of wooden stakes and using garlics. Chris and Edgar search the refugee of Shane and his tribe to save Nicole . Chris turn into vampire at the night and stricken to hungry blood.Then he undergoes a dental transformation and going on a murderous rampage every time a vampire enemy appears.
This eerie picture displays terror, thriller, violence, chills and loads of blood and guts . The movie contains great load of action , special effects abundant and numerous scenes have you on edge of your seat . However , it fails to deliver either frights or laughs. The screenwriter provides a very serviceable and passable-knit plot with suspense, tension, horror and improbable situations . Many people may not even be aware that there was a Lost Boys sequel . The title became a direct-to-DVD hit smash, making back its $5 million dollar budget in just three weeks of DVD sales. The Tribe saw the return of Corey Haim and Corey Feldman , famous couple by that time , in the 80s playing two Peter Cushing teens , booth of whom made several films as sympathetic adolescent duo ; however today they only play B movies . Feldman as Edgar Frog again plays a vampire hunter with an attitude, as well as Angus Sutherland replacing in for his brother Kiefer. Corey Haim returned as well, but only for one scene at the end of the movie, a special cameo , while the other Frog brother, Jamison Newlander, only appeared in an alternate ending found on the DVD . Feldman told that the Frog Brothers will reunite for the third installment , titled ¨Lost Boys: The Thirst ¨ by Dario Piana and in post-production ; sadly Corey Ham doesn't repeat role being recently dead . The motion picture is regularly directed by P. J. Pesce , a filmmaker expert on sequels such as he proved in ¨ Sniper 3 ¨ and ¨ From dusk till down : the hangman's daughter ¨ and of course ¨ The lost boys : the tribe ¨. The flick will appeal to vampire genre fans and is especially aimed at juvenile audiences.
