Soft-Core Porno spoof of the first movie.
Nobody expected this movie to be great, but it is truly awful. My advice would be to Skip it and go straight to The Thirst, this adds nothing to the plot or character development. It seem to mix up Sam Emerson's character with Alan frog, having vampires mention Edgar's brother a few times, then having a 20 second cameo in the end credits with Corey Haim.

The first low point, for me anyway, was the amount of swearing in the opening few minutes, it begins right after the Warner logo and is totally unneeded. The next big problem is the updated vampires, they aren't cool, not in the slightest, in an attempt to be "XTREAM" and "with it" these vampires stab each other and upload it to youtube. The creators obviously had no clue about the audience of this movie, maybe they didn't realise that the fans that saw the original are now Corey Felmans age. That's the beauty of the original it spans almost 3 generations, something the creators of this movie didn't know, thinking the audience would be comprised of self harmers and sex crazed 13 year olds.

The story itself plodded along slowly for the first 40 or 50 minutes, it's essentially an unenthusiastic remake of the original. It tried half heartedly to be a lost boys movie, It ended up copying many of the events from the first one. The script writer has taken most of the scenes from the original mixed them up and wrote some new lines of dialogue to glue them together. The "Magic" isn't there. It's missing a plot twist and some well needed lovable characters (maybe it's that lack of younger teens?). You also have Feldman over acting his heart out in an attempt to compensate for some of the other actors. It doesn't save the movie, but it is the highlight, in fact I cheered at the T.V when he appeared. Feldman's role is the same as in the first movie, right down to the dialogue, line for line in some places.

Many of the actors look bored, when being attacked by vampires most of the cast look like they're waiting for a bus. This brings me to another complaint, there is way too many over the top sex scenes crammed into this, I have no problems with sex scenes in movies, you expect it in horror movies, but when the two main cast members start having sex with everything on two legs, your movie is a porno. At the halfway point we are "treated" to a slow misplaced police chase scene, followed by the characters sleeping and a driving to the beach, nicely killing off any kind of momentum the movie had built up. There's a cool weapons talk in Edgar frogs van, where he explains all the vampire killing equipment, but this only leads to an end battle which fall flat on its face.

There is no plot twist or clever writing of any kind in this movie. I will not be sitting through it again, once is more than enough.
