I'm glad they finally got the Frog Bros. together again (the way it should have been in the second movie) and that song always puts me in a good mood. However, the tone is far too serious. I hope that's just the way the trailer was cut but it just doesn't look like fun.

I liked the trailer. I like vampire movies even cheesy ones.

I'll see it too, probably fun to watch on a boring Saturday or Sunday.

Only good part about the second one was Autumn Reaser. I could watch her sit on the couch. This looks kinda good though.

Re: The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst

The main angle is lifted from True Blood and the tone is more Blade than Lost Boys, but I'll give this one a shot. While I agree that there should be more humor, I also sort of like the idea that the Frogs are no longer fun-loving kids but are now hardened vampire hunters.

Re: The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst

Not bad, I enjoyed it more than the second one. Even better, it was totally loyal to the first movie. Flashback clips, repeated lines, and mentioning of the previous characters.

Much, much bigger part for Jamison Newlander as Allan Frog.
Spoiler for him
Spoiler:
In the 2nd one, he was revealed as a vampire. They went back on that a little, he's only a HALF vampire, I guess he hadn't made a first kill.


Other info
Spoiler:
Edgar Frog alludes to the fact that he had to kill vampire Sam, which ruined his relationship with Michael & Star. He also mentions that Laddie is married with children.


Not a lot of great kills, either human or vamp, but there was one that I really liked:
Spoiler:
Careful, this spoils the end of the movie!
Spoiler:
Edgar douses the head vampire with water, and then blesses it, turning it into holy water. Sweet. I guess he's a priest.


Naturally, lots of room left open for another sequel. I'm so there.
Spoiler:
Edgar's girlfriend is a werewolf. We find out in the last shot. Good or evil, we don't know.


Sorry for all the spoilers, but I mentioned some pretty big plot points.

same here. This wasn't a great movie by any means, but it was SO much better than the second.
