Okay, I’ve grown to accept that we’ll never get a real sequel to The Lost Boys. The 2008 straight-to-DVD sequel Lost Boys: The Tribe was beyond horrible. Warner Home Video has produced a third film, and this time around it looks like it focuses on the return of the Frog brothers. I’m not saying Lost Boys: The Thirst looks good, but at least it puts Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander back in the spotlight, instead of just assigning them to secondary characters.
The first trailer has been released online, and can be watched after the jump. If anything, this trailer makes me want to revisit the original again. But it doesn’t look entirely horrible, does it?
“The thankless life of a vampire hunter has taken its toll on Edgar Frog. After losing best friend and fellow vamp fighter, Sam, he has started to let himself slide. He’s down to selling his prized comic book collection just to pay rent on a decrepit trailer when stunning vampire novelist Gwen approaches with an offer. She needs him to find her brother who has gone missing after getting sucked into a series of underground raves, called ‘The Gathering,’ held by an enigmatic spinner named DJ Dusk.
In a last, frantic message he mentioned being given a new party drug known as The Thirst, which turned out to be a mixture of ecstasy and vampire blood. Gwen shows Edgar a vile of the The Thirst, explaining DJ Dusk must be a head vampire and he’s using his parties to raise an undead army. With the last rave, ‘The Final Gathering,’ only days away Edgar must assemble a vamp-hunting team worthy of crashing the party, and hopes to include his reclusive brother who’s dealing with his own dark past. Before the battle is over Edgar will discover there is a greater evil at work and must face his most haunting fear”
