'Lost Boys: The Thirst'
(Corey Feldman, Casey B. Dolan, Tanit Phoenix, Jamison Newlander, Seb Castang, et al / DVD / R / 2010 / Warner Bros.)
Overview: As the lost boys and girls of San Cazador prepare to party under the Blood Moon, an alpha vampire conspires to turn these unsuspecting ravers into an army of undead. The only thing that stands between him and the annihilation of the entire human race is the infamous vampire fighting Frog Brothers. Armed with double-barrel holy water balloon launchers and multi-arrow crossbows, Edgar (Corey Feldman) and Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) join forces to kick some blood-sucker butt in this latest high-energy, action packed adventure in the Lost Boys franchise.
DVD Verdict: Oh dear, oh dear ... oh dear! This movie is terrible and Cory Feldman, you can do better. I'm no fan of his acting in general but I think he tried to hard to do what should come naturally. His voice sounds like he's been a heavy smoker from birth, it's like he's trying to channel Hugh Jackman and be Wolverine but without claws. The amount of profanity is erroneously excessive, and does not at all make up for a crappy movie.
Hiding behind a poorly penned story, the new way to "recruit" if you will is to host rave parties and hand out little containers of vampire blood. Some lady with a half decent british accent (knock off Elizabeth Hurley) pleads for Edgar Frog to find her brother. He reluctantly agrees, and tells her he needs expensive weapons. They take almost an hour to actually get to this rave party they talk about the first 45 min or so, and when they get there it looks like a massive amount of bored people.
In order for them to "recruit" or "turn" someone, they give them the thirst which is vampire blood. Only a few are shown actually being given the thirst, but now everyone at the rave is a vampire behind a fence. Vampires have super human strength, agility, speed, and can fly. With that in mind, why can't they tear a hole in your average fence? Also what's up with the terrible DJ ... and who is that little boy playing the head vampire? He looks like Leo from Tekken 6!
Sorry, but I just couldn't take this movie seriously. Overall this is a waste of time, money, and space! [DB] This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
