Now Playing Presents: The Lost Boys Movie Retrospective Series

The Lost Boys is a classic 80's film that redefined vampires as sexy demons for an entire generation of fashion victims, and the film that united Corey Haim and Corey Feldman for the first time creating a direct-to-DVD duo that could not be stopped. With the upcoming third installment in this series, The Lost Boys: The Thirst, coming out October 12th, Now Playing is looking back at all three films. Do they hold up, or do they just suck? Inquiring minds want to know!

Lost Boys: The Tribe

After 20 years and a series of aborted sequels, Lost Boys fans had pretty much given up hope on their favorite vampire saga returning to the big screen. But in 2008 a sequel finally found its way to release--The Lost Boys: The Tribe. Featuring an entirely new set of vampires in a new California town, Chris Emerson has to square off against a tribe of vampires led by Shane to save his little sister from becoming a full vampire. Direct to video sequels are rarely are as good as their theatrical origins, but could this film buck the trend by including Keifer Sutherland's half-brother as the head vampire, Corey Feldman reprising his gravely Edgar Frog voice, and a cameo from horror master Tom Savini?
