Tom Savini Joins The Lost Boys Tribe

Last week we reported in our DVD News section that both of “the Coreys” would be putting in an appearance in The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, the not-really-awaited sequel to The Lost Boys. Now it appears the movie is getting another big name attached, or at least a big one in horror circles: Tom Savini.

The horror makeup master told Fango Radio that not only is he putting in an appearance, but Savini will be one of the first vampires seen in the movie, as reported by Bloody-Disgusting: "I'm a surfer who runs into the vampires at the beginning of the film, in a sequence that is shot very Sergio Leone-style. They're shooting THE TRIBE in Vancouver right now, and I'll be there September 11."

So, why report the inclusion of the Coreys as DVD news, but Tom Savini as movie news? Simple. Last week the movie was slated for a direct to DVD release but Savini thinks that because of the Coreys’ television show, The Lost Boys: The Tribe may now get a theatrical release. That doesn’t heighten our expectations for the movie at all, however. After all, Savini has appeared in a hoard of bad horror flicks. Instead we’re just expecting The Tribe to crash and burn on the big screen before being a disaster on DVD.
