The Lost Boys: The Thirst (2010)

1st View
Format: Netflix WI
Venue: Rivendell

The Good: This movie gets better as it progresses, that's about as kind as I can be to it. The two elements of the script that I actually do enjoy are the poignant head nods to the original film and the merciless slamming of Stefanie Meyer (author of those God-awful Twilight books).

The Bad: This is textbook shitty DTV filmmaking. The acting, for the most part, is abysmal, the script is a tightly-woven tapestry of cliches, and the effects are straight out of your cousin's backyard movies. Also, I can not abide the rancid emo cover of Cry Little Sister (the outstandingly awesome theme song from the first film). Why not just use the original goddamn song instead of paying a shit band to cover it?! 

The Weird: You have to admire the dedication of Corey Feldman. Knowing that he was to reprise his role as one of the Frog brothers one day, he decided to spend years and years taking copious amounts of drugs and drinking like a maniac until he reached the point where he looked and sounded exactly like an actual frog. Bravo!

Rating: 4/10 Atkins
