Lost Boys: The Tribe Plot Synopsis:

The orphan and former surfer Chris Emerson and his sister Nicole Emerson move to Luna Bay expecting to initiate a new life without housing expenses with their Aunt Jillian, but she charges rent to the siblings for a wrecked house, and Chris seeks a job working as board shaper to raise money for the unforeseeable expenses. While in town, he meets his acquaintance and also former surfer Shane Powers that invites Chris for a surf parting at night. Then the siblings unsuccessfully seek out the board shaper and vampire hunter Edgar Frog in his trailer trying to find a job and Chris leaves a message for him. They go to Shane's party and Nicole stays with Shane and drinks booze offered by him. Later she becomes a half-vampire and Edgar advises that she drank vampire's blood and can only be saved if the head-vampire is killed. Chris and Edgar search the hiding place of Shane and his tribe to save Nicole.

Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) Review

Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) is the sequel to The Lost Boy (1987) that is directed by P.J. Pesce. Lost Boys: The Tribe had a budget of $4.2 million and took place with a new set of teenagers. Corey Feldman has been trying to get the sequel for years, and it finally happened, was it good?

Lost Boys: The Tribe stars Tad Hilgenbrink and Autumn Reeser as Chris and Nicole, brother and sister. They move to Luna Bay to party and have some fun. Nicole meets Shane (Angus Sutherland) who is a vampire, and she soon becomes one too. Chris tries to save his sister, by staking and killing the head vampire.

This vampire film is filled with all the parties, girls, and vampires from the original film. This movie only has one returning cast member played by Corey Feldman as Edgar Frog from the Frog Brothers. The vampire hunter brothers who helped Sam (Corey Haim) and Michael (Jason Patric) in the original film. This film, however, feels a little hollow, mainly because of the wait and the high expectations long time fans had. The ending felt lackluster and like a big let down. The lack of continuity in both story and tone of the film are to blame here. Die hard fans will be eager to see what happens here and make sure you keep your expectations low.
