Personally, I really didn't care for The Tribe. It seemed like they were trying to kind of remake the first one in a way but with a more modern twist. Frankly, I felt like that just didn't work. I had to get it though because it had Edger in it. I was so upset that they left out Alan, MY favorite Frog brother. The Tribe was just a huge let down to me like I figured it would be.
When I saw that they made The Thirst, I thought "Are you serious!? Another one?? How far are they going to try to stretch this?"; then I saw that Jamison Newlander would be in this one as well as Corey Feldman. Well, that did it for me. I had to see the original Frog brothers reunited! I must say, I really enjoyed watching it. The story line was a little corny, but doable. Most of the vampires all die the same way. I think 2 or 3 of them exploded without turning to ash. I didn't really care for the way the voices of the vamps changed when they were bearing teeth. But regardless, everyone keeps changing vampires over the years. Not much you can do about it. Everything was worth it to me just to see the Frog brothers back in action, kicking a$$ and making corny wise cracks when pushing 40. It was a riot! You can tell that Newlander and Feldman had a good time getting back in touch with those characters.
Have now seen the second one, I loved it as well.
But it certainly was nice to see this one. It is different than the first, a bit campy in some places, but if you love vamp movies you will enjoy this installment for so many reasons - the memorial to Corey Haim, little flash backs to him in the first installment, they did a good job of showing Corey Feldman's missing his good friend wishing he was still alive and garnering strength from his relationship with Corey Haim's character Sam (such a great tribute). He was dead in this one and they let you know how he died.
Corey Feldman with his 'brother' Jamison Newlander in the movie certainly stepped up with lots of great thumbs up towards the first movie. At the end they introduced a female werewolf ... yeah!! I personally enjoyed it, hope you do too. And I wish to thank everyone for the nice tribute to Corey Haim, as I have always enjoyed him and Corey Feldman movies.
After all, I watched The Tribe twice: Once because it was the long awaited sequel,
again because I was hoping that my first impressions would give way to something
more favorable (they didn't). Despite disliking The Tribe however, I
thought, 'oh what the heck', threw 'The Thirst' in my computer, minimized the
window and proceeded to net surf because, frankly, my intentions were just to
see what was done this time for the sake of morbid curiosity and then leave it
to collect dust. Needless to say I had to max the screen and put everything
else on hold for a time.
I was really, really surprised to come out of this with a good impression.
First, to get something important out of the way:
This IS a low budget direct to DVD release. Keep expectations realistic in that
I'm not writing this in an attempt to convince both myself and others that it's
better than it was. Yes, the dialogue is cheesy and the situations are campy
(but they are supposed to be!). But yes, there are parts that are borderline bad
(which I'm pretty sure were not supposed to be). Overall however, this is a fun
movie that has the heart of the original in it. Feldman of course is the one who
pulls most of this off, his performance as a vampire hunting wouldbe Rambo is flawless
and genuinely entertaining to watch. I'm writing this because I think this
movie deserves a shot (at the very least a rental), and I know there are likely
MANY people who may not otherwise give this title a second glance because of how
The Tribe turned out - and imo, that would be a shame! (but I digress).Read more ›
This is not a sequel, really. It's a spinoff. It's about Edgar and Allen. It has flashbacks from the original movie, and briefly discusses what happened with the other major characters from the first movie. It's campy, and it's hilarious. If you're looking for a serious horror movie, look elsewhere. If you're looking to relive your childhood memories of Lost Boys, that isn't going to happen, this isn't that movie. These vampires don't sparkle, but the dialogue does take a repeated poke at people who like sparkly vampires. And the dialogue...I have to completely disagree with the people who say the writing sucked. It was clever. The dialogue flowed well, even through the campy lines. It reminded me more than once of a less-polished Joss Whedon, and I don't say that lightly, as I love Joss' work.
It's not highbrow intellectual cinema, but it doesn't try to be. The production values are moderate, the acting is pretty hit or miss. I also disagree with those who assess Feldman's acting as "bad". If you just don't like Corey Feldman, and it seems there are a lot who don't, why would you watch it? It's hilariously overwrought, and meant to be so. Wait, I know what it is. It's a live action comic book. It's a series of charicatures of recognizable types, like the Cute Smart Sidekick Girl, the Loner Hero With A Troubled Past, the Weird Guy With All The High Tech Weapons. It's cheesy good fun. Reminded me a bit of movies like They Live, or Hell Comes to Frogtown, only this had much better writing and acting (sorry, Roddy.)
