Review: The Lost Boys: The Tribe

Gonna make this quick, I'm tired as shit. And shit is pretty tired.

Anyways, this movie wasn't as bad as I was expecting. But I was expecting complete and utter shit. This was still stupid, but not as stupid as I was waiting for.

The premise is simple, Bro and Sis move to Malibu, new group of vampires there, they turn the sis into a vampire, brother tries to save her. Same shit as the first. Corey Feldman returns as Edgar Frog and helps the brother out. The end....

SPOILERS LIE AHEAD!!! But the surprise is actually the finale, even after the credits start rolling, they stop and a new scene opens up, one that leads into the THIRD MOVIE???? Well actually, I fuckin hope so. We see ol Edgar Frog, out in the dark, waiting, shit is spooky, and he yells CUT THE THEATRICS, I KNOW YOU'RE THERE!!! And out of the dark steps.... Sam Emerson. (Corey Haim). Who from what we can see, is now a vampire. And him and Edgar have a major beef. From the sounds of things, Sam turned vamp, and killed Edgars brother. All through The Tribe we see Edgar hint at shit that happened in his past, to his loved ones, but never what. This is somewhat pointless, because the way The Tribe ends, is how it should have started. No one gives a fuck about new characters, they want the old ones! I would love to see a movie where Sam is now a master vampire and Edgar has to hunt him. Hopefully we will get the third movie, and that will be the plot. Which should have just been the pointless second movie.

All in all, The Tribe is, ok. Nowhere near as great as the first movie. But still an interesting watch. Also, interesting tid bit. The head vampire in this movie is played by Angus Sutherland. Yes, the half brother of Kiefer Sutherland.
