Oh, The Lost Boys. Joel Schumacher's 1987 vampire film has become a bit of classic, and, sadly, someone over at Warner Brothers finally picked up on that fact. Why major studios decide that 20 years later, fans of the original film will be salivating over the idea of a direct-to-video sequel is beyond me. But apparently someone at Warner thought differently, and they released Lost Boys: The Tribe on DVD and Blu-ray in 2008.

Flashforward to the present. It's 2010 and despite a relatively poor reception for The Tribe, we're being graced with the presence of yet another sequel, bypassing theaters to hit DVD and Blu-ray this October. According to Blu-ray.com, Corey Feldman is back in Lost Boys: The Thirst, reprising his role as Edgar Frog. Peter Hall clued us in to the plot synopsis as well as the trailer back in May. Corey Haim was reportedly on board to do a potential fourth Lost Boys outing, but died before that could become a reality. So the burden of the Lost Boys sequels falls squarely on Feldman shoulders, with the possibility of another sequel supposedly still looming. Fans will get a chance to see if Lost Boys: The Thirst fares any better than the The Tribe when it hits DVD and Blu-ray on October 12th.
