Lost Boys 2 Trailer ReviewMeh
Last night I checked out the Lost Boys 2: The Tribe trailer and I have good news and bad news, all depends on who you are. If you are a fan of the original and are watching it for that reason only I think you will enjoy it. If you are looking for good production values and great story telling you are likely to be severely dissapointed. The trailer is not the movie but the trailer was at best very indie, and you only see the two coreys in two scenes and they are just cheesey one liners that make you either laugh or groan. The vampires are also not like the first film. In this film they look like the vampires from Dusk Till Dawn accept the FX are nowhere near as good. Will this movie get a theatrical run? In my view highly unlikely. I think this movie will appeal to fans of the original but its very unlikely that mainstream horror fans will pick up on it. But who knows... it is just a trailer and perhaps its a BAD trailer.
This sequel takes us to the shady surf city of Luna Bay, California, where vampires quickly dispatch anyone who crosses their path. Into this dark world arrive Chris Emerson (Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (Reeser).
Having just lost their parents in a car accident, the siblings move in with their eccentric Aunt Jillian and become new prey for the locals’ way of life. When Nicole unwittingly falls for a local vampire, Chris must locate and destroy the gang’s lifeline before his sister’s transformation is complete; to do this Chris finds himself relying on the expertise of none other than Edgar Frog (Feldman). Subtle references to characters from the original film, and cameos from returning actors offer homage to the Lost Boys legend and set a sinister tone of impending doom.
