Well, one good thing about the gradual destruction of the memory of the brilliance that was ‘The Lost Boys’, is that they keep hiring the hottest chicks for leading roles. Tanit Phoenix is lined up to play Gwen Lieber, a fairly ironic role. Gwen Lieber is a wealthy vampire-romance author, who ends up in dire straits. As clever as that might sound, it’s disturbing to note that a sequel to one of the greatest vampire movies of all time, has been reduced to spoofing other vampire films. Oh, the shame! Tanit Phoenix, a seasoned scream queen, is looking forward to her new role, despite only getting a chance to wear skimpy bikinis. Oh… darn.
Check out her comments on her new role, from Bloody-Disgusting.com:
“The boys over at Moviehole landed an exclusive interview with South African model Tanit Phoenix who chatted about her roles in Death Race 2: Frankenstein Lives and Warner Premiere’s Lost Boys: The Thirst. “What I found very interesting about the Lost Boys script was that it showcases vampires how they really are, blood-sucking and evil, which somewhat dances around the fact that Twilight made their vampires seem beautiful, but they really are not.” In the DTV sequel she plays Gwen Lieber, a wealthy vampire-romance novelist who gets a little dirtied up. “I wanted to play a bad girl, and I finally got my chance, [but] the most physical I got was getting into skimpy outfits.” At least we have that to look forward to.

I got excited when I started watching the sequel, then I noticed I was actually watching a preview for Splice. Once I heard Corey Feldman’s bizarre, post-pubescent voice, I started getting a bit more into the groove though, and was slightly chagrined, –maybe, just maybe, this movie won’t be made of epic failure! And besides, at the very least, it is a vampire movie, after all. And while not all vampire movies are good, they still keep our particular genre alive, –or at the very least, undead. We’ll review it as soon as we can, and let you know how much it sucks.
