Silly sequel to '80s camp vampire film with gore, nudity.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that LOST BOYS: THE THIRST -- the third in the series of vampire movies that began with The Lost Boys (1987) -- features the expected amount of vampire violence and gore (biting, spurting blood, stabbing, ripping flesh, burning, and exploding bodies). Language is not constant but includes several uses of "f--k" and "s--t." There are several brief scenes of female nudity (mostly topless women dancing at a rave party) and some girl-on-girl kissing and licking. Teens take a fictitious drug called "the thirst." They are shown to be having a good time, though there is a price to pay. Parents who grew up with the original movie -- and older teen vampire fans who want something a little lighter and sillier than the Twilight movies -- may be interested.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the movie's violence. How did it make you feel? Was it exciting or disturbing? How did the movie go about creating this feeling?
  • What makes a character like Edgar Frog a hero? He's cynical, unfriendly, and sometimes downright mean. Is he still appealing?
  • Why are vampires and horror movies so popular today?

3 stars

This 3rd film is occasionally stupid, but the film still works as a Corey Haim tribute due to the heart felt flashbacks of his character Sam and Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman) constantly mourning him. I also found the movie funny at times. So Lost Boys: The Thirst was much better than the 2nd film.

Seeing lost boys: 2 my expectations were not very high on this. The movie feels like if the SyFy channel made Blade. Corey Feldman does a terrible job acting and has this anoying tough guy voice. It will meet the straight to DVD standards for people like me that know they are not going to a watch a serious movie.

Everyonce in while a great silly movie made for kids and adults that is entertianingly enjoyable comes along..then you stop. You do not try to recreate the magic in a silly sequel, like this movie. The actting was bad, the graphics were lame and the story line ..never mind. I liked Lost Boys..but this..I dont like.
