Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

The Lost Boys: The Tribe

I really don’t know how much of an interest there will be for Warner Bros direct to DVD sequel to its very popular vampire film, THE LOST BOYS, but I’ll give it a look when it arrives in stores July 29th. The original The Tribehas really grown in popularity since its release in 1987. I remember seeing it in at the Kingsway movie theater in Brooklyn NY and being highly entertained at a sneak preview the weekend before it was officially released. I saw it three more times during its initial run. The one thing that always stood out in my mind about The Lost Boys were the Frog Brothers. These two characters, who supplied the movie with some great comic relief, are back in the sequel, once again played by the original actors, Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander.

Autumn Reeser, a very appealing young actress who did good work on the Fox TV series The O.C., stars in the film which is officially titled “The Lost Boys: The Tribe.” The troubled actor, Corey Haim, who played Sam Emerson in the original, was added to the cast when producers decided to do some post production re-shoots. Warner Bros toyed with the idea of making a theatrical sequel more than a few times in the 90’s with a script titled The Lost Girls which was written but ultimately never produced. Hopefully they didn’t make a mistake choosing this one and the finished product will have some entertainment value. Here’s a look at the trailer.
