Vampires Collection: 4 Film Favorites
This quartet of pictures taps into the horror archives at Warner Brothers for a series of four films linked by the theme of vampires. First up is 1987's The Lost Boys, directed by Joel Schumacher and co-starring Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric - about a California family beset by a gang of teenage vampires. Second on the bill is the direct-to-video sequel , Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008), where a brother (Tad Hilgenbrink) and sister (Autumn Reeser) relocate to Trinidad, California and get set upon by the gang from the first picture. Next is 2010's third installment, Lost Boys: The Thirst. This outing finds Corey Feldman reprising his role from the first movie, as Edgar -who attempts to thwart a global takeover by a maniac interested in marketing vampire blood as a pharmaceutical. Finally, 2002's Queen of the Damned brings Anne Rice's novel of the same title to the screen, with Stuart Townsend as the vampire Lestat, in a saga that finds him being mistaken for a goth rock act. His music finds its way to Akasha (Aaliyah), the queen of the undead, who soon awakens from her slumber, joins forces with Lestat and tries to take over the world.
