Lost Boys: The Tribe is a 2008 horror-comedy that tells the story of Chris Emerson (played by Tad Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (played by Autumn Reeser), who move to Luna Bay, California after their parents die in a car accident. They eventually make friends with a group of surfers led by Shane Powers (played by Angus Sutherland), who invites them to a party on the beach.

At the party, Chris meets and falls for a beautiful girl named Shane (played by Laura Vandervoort), but he soon discovers that Shane and her brother David (played by Shaun Sipos) are actually vampires. Chris tries to save Nicole from becoming a vampire like Shane, but things get complicated when Chris starts to fall for Shane himself.

As the story unfolds, Chris and his friends uncover a plot by a group of rogue vampires led by a creepy, ancient vampire queen named Tannis (played by Gabrielle Rose) to take over the town and turn everyone into vampires. Along the way, they encounter various obstacles and challenges, including a group of vampire hunters and a shady businessman who is in cahoots with the vampires.

The movie is a sequel to the popular 1987 horror-comedy, The Lost Boys, and it tries to capture the same vibe and tone as the original. It features a mix of humor, horror, and romance, with some nods to the 80s era of the original film.

The cast is led by Tad Hilgenbrink, who does a decent job as the lead protagonist, Chris. He is sympathetic and relatable, and his character arc is interesting to watch as he tries to navigate his feelings for Shane and his desire to protect his sister from becoming a vampire.

Angus Sutherland, the half-brother of Kiefer Sutherland who played one of the vampires in the original film, is a standout as the villainous Shane. He brings a sinister and sneering quality to the character that is simultaneously charismatic and disturbing.

Autumn Reeser is also solid as Nicole, the plucky and resourceful younger sister of Chris. She holds her own against the boys and has some fun moments of her own.

The film's main weakness is the plot, which is a bit messy and convoluted. There are too many characters and subplots to keep track of, and the story lacks the clear narrative focus of the original film. Additionally, the visual effects are somewhat lacking, especially when it comes to the portrayal of the vampire transformations.

Overall, Lost Boys: The Tribe is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to fans of the original film and to those who enjoy horror-comedies. It has some flaws, but the likable cast and nostalgic nods to the 80s make it a worthwhile watch.

Lost Boys: The Tribe is a 2008 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
