Haim not a fan of Lost Boys : The Tribe

Corey Haim’s on the promotional circuit at the moment plugging his hair-heavy role (or is it a bit part? Anyone seen the film? Is Corey actually in it for more than three minutes?) in “Crank 2 : High Voltage”. One of his stops was Slashfilm, where the “Lost Boys” star unearthed his real feelings about the recent direct-to-disc sequel. Needless to say, since he was delegated to the alternate endings section of the DVD, he didn’t think much of it.

The Lost Boys is definitely in my top ten films of all time…

Corey Haim: Dude, thanks.

…and the sequel is one of the biggest fucking ball-drops of all time…

Corey Haim: What, The Tribe? Yeah, they called me three months after that movie was being made. And they said we’d like to do some alternate endings and some re-shoots. And I was like, “You know I inquired about this movie and you guys said you didn’t want me, and now you do.” So, I did it…I mean it’s Lost Boys 2.

I’ve spoken to a few of the people involved with the sequel behind-the-scenes. I still don’t get it how out turned out so shitty. And you agree that it sucked…

Corey Haim: Man, absolutely. No offense to the crew and cast. They did a great job.

So, now there’s talk about Lost Boys 3. It seems to be happening.

Corey Haim: There’s always ideas being kicked around. There’s talk about number four and number five. The Lost Girls. Just different people at the office. But it’s too late. They should have done it years ago, or just done it properly. It’s way too late. That’s just my opinion.
