Editorial Reviews

: In the Butcher Brothers award-winning original film, The Hamiltons were a dysfunctional, orphaned family struggling in sunny suburbia. On the outside, they appeared normal enough, but they hid a very dark secret...in order to survive, they needed to drink blood. In the high-octane sequel, a bloodbath at a desert gas station puts the family on the run, eventually seeing them resurface in the U.K. under a new name as The Thompsons. With the youngest brother Lenny gravely injured, the family is in desperate need of help. Hearing rumors of another vampire clan who might be able to assist them, Francis agrees to make contact. His quest leads to a family-run pub in the English countryside where he meets a gorgeous waitress named Riley Stuart. As Riley flirts, Francis fails to notice her blood thirsty relatives sneaking up behind him... Francis tries fighting the family off the best he can but these new vamps are faster, stronger and more vicious than he s encountered before. After a brutal struggle he s subdued and brought back to their home. When Francis wakes up he s surprised to learn that the Stuarts simply wanted to test his powers. They set him free and offer safe haven to himself and the rest of his family. As the rest of the family makes their way across the English countryside to join him, Frances begin to suspect the Stuarts may have an agenda behind their kindness. With Riley as his only potential ally and her motives still unclear, the epic battle between the two clans is inevitable...

Remember the good old days when vampires were clearly evil blood-drinking villains? Contemporary cinematic vampires have mutated into romanticized misunderstood creatures trying to fit in and be accepted by society. Yet, they still kill people, slurp their blood but nowadays it's not their fault. The vampires have become the victims of an unyielding humanity. Of course TWILIGHT, TRUE BLOOD, VAMPIRE DIARIES, etc. have validated this new vampire acceptance philosophy.
THE THOMPSONS continues this trend. A sequel to THE HAMILTONS, writers/directors the Butcher Brothers have created another blood-soaked sexually perverse gorefest. It's unimaginative, derivative and only marginally enjoyable. It employs the standard jerky MTV camera work and uses moderately talented actors. Francis' cliché ridden narrative gets tedious and the movie's open-ended predictable climax screams sequel.
Don't get me wrong---I still enjoy vampire movies (I humbly admit I love TRUE BLOOD!) but I miss the Christopher Lee/Hammer days where we could root for the victims and not the vampires!

The Thompsons is a sequel to The Hamiltons. Like the earlier film (made 6 years before) it revolves around a family of vampires. It's pretty much the same family, only they've changed their surnames, and moved to England.

It has many of the same actors (Cory Knauf as Francis Hamilton / Thompson, Mackenzie Firgens as Mackenzie Firgens).

What doesn't make sense is the nature of their vampireness. In the first they were fangless blood-drinkers, in this they have fangs.

They also meet a more powerful family of vampires including Riley Stuart (Agent of SHIELD's Elizabeth Henstridge) who decides to betray her own family for love... a well worn plot device.

This English vampire family have some strange ideas regarding 'breeding' with other vampires that makes no sense.

This production combines grindhouse with "Twilight" style vampires and doesn't do either one well. The film opens up in Ludlow, England as Francis (Cory Knauf) is looking for distant relatives and provides the far too used first person narration. The scene flashes back to the US then takes us back to England for no other reason then to try to look clever.

Francis is a vampire-type person. He and his family are on the lam after going berserk in a desert diner, caught on film. The youngest brother Lenny (Ryan Hartwig) got shot in the chest. Exactly how this family who lived isolated, wanted by the law, dragging along a bloody kid with a shotgun wound to the chest, gets overseas (I don't think they had passports either) is a plot point not mentioned. They are seeking help, as their parents are dead and they don't know how to cope with this genetic vampire issue they lived with their whole life.

The family splits up and Francis goes to Ludlow looking for answers not realizing predators don't like their territory to be overcrowded with rival predators.

The film has its grindhouse moments, but then dies. As a "Twilight" type film, the writing was simply too bad. While I liked the basic plot outline, the details and execution lacked forethought and planning. It appears they slapped something together knowing the public will buy it depending on how they sell it, such as placing "Twilight" and Tarantino's name on the jacket. It is not that good. For what it's worth: Elizabeth Henstridge can act better than frequent Razzy nominee Kristen Stewart.

Parental guidance: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Katarina Gellin, Zoe Grisedale, Elizabeth Henstridge or body double) Three stars is a stretch.

After 6 years, The Butcher Brothers (Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores) return to the dysfunctional vampire family last seen in their low budget chiller The Hamiltons, who, as per that film's finale, now go by the name of The Thompsons. When a stop at a roadside diner puts them in the middle of a robbery, youngest member Lenny (Ryan Hartwig) is seriously wounded. After slaughtering robber and patron alike, the fiendish family flees to Europe to find help from others like themselves and escape the police manhunt. In the small town of Ludlow, England they find their British equivalent, The Stuarts and it seems they have found help for Lenny in this kindred family. But, The Stuarts unveil their own sinister agenda and as Francis (Cory Knauf) falls in love with their beautiful daughter, Riley (Elizabeth Henstridge), a war of the vampire clans erupts and a blood soaked battle for supremacy begins. Where the first film was a creepy and twisted family drama, the sequel shows us what a Twilight movie would be like if they had any real fangs... and gallons of blood. And The Butcher's version of that neutered vampire saga is a lot more gory fun. Where the first movie kept their vampiric nature a secret till the end, this is a full blown vampire flick that explains a lot of about the character's condition that wasn't fully explored in The Hamiltons. There are barely any humans in the cast either and those that are, don't last long. It's all red eyes, bared fangs and spurting blood. The film moves quickly too, at barely over 80 minutes, so there is little time wasted on melodrama and what I really liked was how the Butchers turned the sick and blood thirsty Hamiltons/Thompsons into the victims this time round and thus the heros.Read more ›
