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.

Synopsis

Queen of the Damned
The second and third novels in author Anne Rice's popular book series The Vampire Chronicles provide the inspiration for this horror sequel starring ill-fated actress and recording artist Aaliyah, who was killed in an airplane crash before the film's release. Stuart Townsend is the vampire Lestat, who has awakened from a century-long slumber and turned his considerable energy to rock music. His vampirism identity mistaken for a gothic hard rock publicity stunt along the lines of Kiss or Marilyn Manson, he quickly becomes a pop music sensation. Lestat's powerful music reaches the ear of the slumbering Akasha (Aaliyah), the millennia-old "queen of the vampires" who was the first immortal bloodsucker. Akasha is soon free and embarking on a quest to seize control of the world with Lestat at her side. In the meantime, Lestat becomes an object of fascination for Jesse Reeves (Marguerite Moreau), member of a secret order studying the supernatural called the Talamasca, and a band of ancient vampires come together in an effort to stop Akasha, even though her destruction could potentially cause their own deaths. Queen of the Damned co-stars Lena Olin and Vincent Perez. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Lost Boys: The Tribe
From Dusk Till Dawn 3 director P.J. Pesce takes the helm once again for this straight to video sequel concerning Nicole (Autumn Reeser), a young girl who falls in with a pack of vampire surfers after moving to the town of Trinidad, California with her brother Chris (Tad Hilgenbrink). Seduced by the charismatic leader of the fanged wave riders, the young innocent gradually discovers that there are forces in nature that could destroy everything she has ever cared for. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Lost Boys: The Thirst
When an ambitious alpha bloodsucker disguises vampire blood as a designer drug in a bid to claim the entire planet in the name of the undead, it's up to Edgar (Corey Feldman) and Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) to fight for the future of the entire human race. As the Blood Moon shines brightly in the midnight sky, the fearless vampire killers leap into action armed with enough tailor made weaponry to blast the demonic beasts into oblivion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Lost Boys
In this hit '80s hybrid of the horror movie and the teen flick, a single mom and her two sons become involved with a pack of vampires when they move into an offbeat Northern California town. Lucy (Dianne Wiest) and her sons, Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim), move to Santa Carla to live with Lucy's lovable but curmudgeonly father (Barnard Hughes). Lucy gets a job from video-store owner Max (Edward Herrmann), then begins dating him, while Sam hangs out with Edward and Alan Frog (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander), a pair of vampire-obsessed comic-shop clerks. Soon Michael falls in with some actual vampires after becoming enamored of one of their victims: Star (Jami Gertz), a gypsy-like vixen who is trying to hold on to her humanity even though vampire leader David (Kiefer Sutherland) wants to play Peter Pan to her Wendy. When Michael visits the cavernous hangout of David and his cronies and unwittingly drinks from a wine bottle full of vampiric blood, he becomes an unwilling member of the bloodsucker biker gang. Soon, it's up to Sam and the Frog brothers to destroy David and his ilk without killing Michael and Star. Shot on location in the coastal California town of Santa Cruz and directed by Hollywood pro Joel Schumacher, The Lost Boys became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to its attractive young stars, offbeat soundtrack, and hip, clever marketing campaign. The film's tagline -- "Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire." -- perfectly captured its knowing mixture of attitude and gore. The effects team who transformed Sutherland and company into snarling bloodsuckers would go on to provide equally gruesome effects for Blade, another revisionist vampire flick, more than a decade later. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi
