Ok I have talked about the Lost Boys sequels here for quite a while and even since the shitty first sequel I have STILL not given up hope that they will finally get the third movie right! With that being said I recently discovered that the third Lost Boys movie trailer has just been put online for all to view.
One good thing you will notice is that the Frog Brothers are indeed back! Supposedly this movie is based more heavily on the recent comic book adventures.
However from the first viewing of the trailer I can’t say I am super impressed with what I see for the third film. Not that I have really ever been convinced that anyone would do a sequel correctly anyway. It seems by this trailer they once again have a bunch of douchey vampires to hunt and kill. It could just be me but I always thought the vamps in the original were pretty cool? But maybe in the 80’s people were thinking Kiefer and crew were a bunch of douches too. I was hoping for a grittier look on the film, but right now it seems so far like the Frog Brothers got dropped into an episode of True Blood, which really isn’t necessarily a bad thing…
I am a forgiving guy, I really am, all my friends can attest to this about me. That is probably the ONLY reason why I am excited and willing to give the third installment of the Lost Boys a chance. After the second movie, The Lost Boys: The Tribe, I was extremely let down and quite frankly a little bit pissed off. I firmly beleive it could have been fairly easy to write a super rad sequel to The Lost Boys. Something like the sound of the plot of “The Lost Boys: The Thirst” which is been announced as the official title.
So from what I have heard recently online it sounds like there is going to be a “Lost Boys 3”. I am not sure if that’s good news considering how god awful the second one was. Maybe they can get it right in the third? Apparently “The Lost Boys: The Tribe” did pretty well on the direct to dvd market as I assumed it would. Director P.J Pesce slaughtered my dreams of what should have been a super rad vampire flick with both Frog Brothers and Sam Emerson (Corey Haim’s character).
Corey Feldman was the best thing about “Lost Boys: The Tribe” other wise the movie sucked like a hungry vampire. But can he save the third film as the movie’s main character?
