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?

This movie was way better than The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe but not as good at the original, The Lost Boys. They had a lot of scenes from the first one and the theme song, Cry Little Sister. It was actually pretty good. Sad in a way, it made me miss Corey Haim.

Now yes I know your all thinking this is just a straight to DVD fast produced mess BUT its actually not a bad vampire flick, nothing too original of course but better than the second for sure. The franchise has definitely taken the 'Blade' route for this outting and to be honest its not too bad a rip even if the whole look, soundtrack (very nice selection and reminded me of 'Interview with the Vampire') and style is so ripped its painful hehe but it does work nicely and its good fun seeing the Frog brothers back together. Plot wise its not that original as the boys just go after the head vamp as you would expect but there are afew nice little twists at the end with characters, a good tribute to Haim with closure for him, previous characters and a great Wolfy concept to follow on with it seems ;) nice but again not very original. A good finish to the trilogy but a fourth is tempting after seeing this but maybe that shouldn't happen.

Better then the last one but still poor in quality to the first movie.Because its a STV fare it's just missing all the values that made the first one a classic.There is a couple of nice moments and you don't feel you are wasting you life away when watching it with a brief 81 mins running time, Nice to see Corey Feldman back but he lacks spark to he's role.lets just hope this is the last one in the series.............Please!!!
