The Lost Boys: The Thirst is a sequel to the 1987 cult classic The Lost Boys, which starred Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander as vampire hunters. The Thirst picks up twenty years later, with Michael and Sam still hunting vampires. When a group of bikers, led by the vampire Edgar Frog, start killing people in San Francisco, Michael and Sam must put aside their differences and team up to stop them.
The Lost Boys: The Thirst is a fun, if not particularly original, vampire horror film. Feldman and Newlander reprise their roles from the original film, and they still have good chemistry. The action is fast-paced and the gore is plentiful. The Thirst is not as good as the original Lost Boys, but it’s a solid sequel.
In the years since the loss of his wife and child, former vampire hunter Michael Emerson has become a recluse. But when a new breed of vampires, led by the ruthless Malachi Van Helsing, begins terrorizing San Francisco, Emerson is drawn back into the fight.
Teaming up with his old partner, Sam, and a young vampire named Edgar, Emerson sets out to stop Van Helsing and his bloodthirsty followers. But as the body count rises, Emerson realizes that he may be the only one who can save the city – and the world – from the vampires’ reign of terror.
Lost Boys: The Thirst is a heart-pounding thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
