Once upon a time, a long time ago (23 years, to be exact), there was a film called 'The Lost Boys.' It focused on this little town called Santa Clara, and the vampires who plagued it. Jason Patric's Michael followed his lust (to Jami Gertz) and found himself mixed up with the bloodsuckers, while mom started dating the secret head vampire. Corey Haim's Sam found some kiddie vamp hunters in the Frog Brothers on his quest to get rid of the menace, and Barnard Hughes' Grandpa turned out to be a lot less clueless than everyone thought. The film was a classic, busting past genre barriers and becoming one of the '80s must-see features.

But then the unthinkable happened: We got a lackluster 'Lost Boys: The Tribe' in 2008, have 'Lost Boys: The Thirst' coming out next month, and Frog brother Corey Feldman says the 'Lost Boys' sequel train wants to keep on trucking for a while, even though the trucks ran out of gas a long time ago.
