The Frog Brothers are all but extinct, still battling vampires yet barely able to make the rent. That is, until a beautiful young woman offers them a huge reward to save her brother by destroying the first vampire, DJ X, while riding the world of the disease once and for all! Now, Edgar and Alan must set off to stop X before he converts more teens into bloodthirsty vampires at his next big rave in the sleepy town of San Cazador, California. THE THIRST still may not come close to recapturing the essence of the original film, but it is a decided step forward from the first series sequel in THE TRIBE. Director Dario Piana introduces several big action sequences in addition to a hip attitude and impressive set pieces in the end. The Frog Brothers are each armed to the teeth with bigger and badder weapons as they take on troves of snarling vampires, and the film shoots for a hard 'R' with more blood, violence, and nudity than ever before. It is hard to imagine that no director has had the balls to tell Corey Feldman just how ridiculous he sounds when he tries to act tough, and yet here again, he comes off as being a complete joke. While it may just be base entertainment, THE THIRST has enough mindless action to please fans of the series.
