Is It Any Good?

Released direct-to-DVD, Lost Boys: The Thirst isn't exactly a high-quality production. It lacks in the acting and dialogue department, and it has a pervading cheap quality. But it often makes up for these things with a humorous, self-aware quality, with the audience in on the joke. However, there are an equal number of more straightforward jokes that fall flat.

Perhaps the movie's biggest benefit is the presence of Corey Feldman, returning, 23 years older, from the original film, and playing a vampire slayer that predates even Buffy. His Edgar Frog is part deluded action hero and part outcast, having devoted his life to a thankless cause and having very little to show for it; he's the very opposite of glamorous. The former child star brings just the right kind of attitude -- and probably a little personal experience -- to this role, and he's never less than interesting.
