Once upon a time there was an awesomely quirky vampire comedy called The Lost Boys. It starred child acting duo Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, along with Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric and Jami Gertz.
Released in 1987, the film was an amazing mix of horror and comedy. It was well received by critics, did great at the box office, and its DVD sales did really well also.
Fast forward several years…
The "Two Coreys" do a whole bunch of drugs, and as a result, both of their careers collapse. On March 10th 2010, Corey Haim dies.
Feldman, whose career has been in the toilet since the 1980s, does anything and everything he can in a desperate attempt to revive his stardom.
In yet another desperate move, this doofus figured it’d be a good idea to make a third (Yes, I said THIRD) instalment of the horror classic.
Who in Hollywood would give this guy money and the opportunity to do such a silly thing?
Feldman took a fantastic movie directed by Joel Shumacher, and turned it into a never-ending-straight-to-video waste of time.
It’s unfortunate that today’s generation can’t look at this classic vampire comedy without snickering at what it’s become.
The remaining Corey easily convinced his co-star from the original, Jamison Newlander, to join in on this project. So now the Frog Brothers can fight vamps together once more. UGH. Please. Corey Haim (R.I.P.) had said he would appear in the 4th part to the 1987 original.
What? There’s gonna be another one??? Holy crap! WHY??? In my opinion, this has-been needs to find a new line of work.
Who’s with me on this?
