The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst Movie Review

Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman, The Goonies, Dream A Little Dream) is broke and being evicted from his home when he is offered a chance to kill the head vampire, destroying all other vampires. The third movie in the Lost Boys series is considerably better than the second, but still fails to come even close to the original. The acting is pretty bad throughout and the plot has holes all over it. Thankfully they dropped most of the really bad CGI from part two, giving a more original feel. The vampires are really hit or miss, with the more powerful vampires being by far the least effective. There are several references to the original film, including rehashing lines from it, and there are even a few scenes from the first movie included as Edgar has flashbacks. Unfortunately Corey Haim died before filming, making it impossible to get the Sam vs. Edgar battle teased in part 2, but the character is included in the story and Haim is featured in flashback scenes. It is mentioned in part two that Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) is dead, but he is in part three, albeit as a vampire.

The meanest, the baddest...and a chick

Most of the major characters from the original film are mentioned in the movie as well, telling us what ends up happening to them. They also sort of ripped on the Twilight phenomenon and reality television as well, both of which earned points from me. This really isn’t a bad movie—it’s not great either, but having watched part 2, I was pleasantly surprised here.
