Vampires have come a long way since Béla Lugosi, and The Lost Boys perhaps helped transform them in pop culture away from the demon of Salem’s Lot to the sensual beauties of The Twilight Saga and The Vampire Diaries. So, you probably have to be the right age to be excited about this one (and maybe have actually seen the two direct-to-video sequels of the movie.) If you need a horrific vampire fix and haven’t read 30 Days of Night, check that one out. You know, Sesame Street’s Count von Count is kinda loveable, I guess. But, as the new host of Sesame Street, we’ll see what HBO does with the character!
“The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the ’80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys. Veteran horror writers Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, NIGHTWING, Hack/Slash), and Scott Godlewski (THE DARK & BLOODY, Copperhead) deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987! Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to ‘normal’ after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven’s head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.”
