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

Not quite the 'Frog Brothers' reunion fans were hoping for!
'LOST BOYS: THE THIRST': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
Corey Feldman takes the lead for the first time in a 'LOST BOYS' film returning once again as Edgar Frog. Jamison Newlander reprises his role of Alan Frog for the first time in this third installment. It's not the 'Frog Brothers' reunion fans were hoping for though as Newlander's scenes are extremely limited. It is nice to see them back together in action again, for what little time they are on screen together though and that's the highlight of the movie. As far as the rest of the film goes it's definitely disappointing. I prefer the second film to this one, although it's not much better.
The film opens with a flashback of Alan Frog being turned into a vampire. If you saw the second film you know this, as well as the fact that Sam (the late Corey Haim) was turned as well and Edgar was forced to kill him. Edgar is now haunted by these painful losses as we see through several flashbacks, using clips from the classic original. He's also broke and being evicted from his trailer. So when a beautiful woman ( the gorgeous Tanit Phoenix) shows up at his door offering him a job to rescue her brother from a gang of ruthless vampires he eagerly takes it. He recruits the help of a comic book clerk (Casey B. Dolan) and reluctantly teams up with a reality TV star and his cameraman (Joe Vaz) and the group raids the vampires' den where they attempt to convert a rave party full of unsuspecting victims into vampires.
The movie is about what you'd expect from a direct to video sequel. The acting, dialog, and over all production values are a little weak. I'm a huge fan of the original film and I think it's still popular enough, and developed a big enough cult following, that they could have made a decent theatrical sequel. So it's extremely disappointing for me to see one sequel after another turned out (so far only two but they're could very well be more) in depreciating value. I guess you might say it's better than nothing and like I said seeing the 'Frog Brothers' reunite is pretty cool. This franchise could have been so much more though.
