Movie Info

The family of American bloodsuckers from The Hamiltons flees to England, where another, more powerful vampire clan awaits in this sequel to The Butcher Brothers' shocking feature debut. In the wake of a massacre at a remote gas station, The Hamilton's monstrous secret gets out. Desperate, they set their sights on England, and change their name to The Thompsons. Meanwhile, with the youngest sibling Lenny suffering mortal wounds, Francis follows rumors of another family of vampires to a quaint pub in the English countryside. Though his intuition was correct, Francis failed to realize that his English counterparts are more powerful than he ever could have imagined. After taking Francis hostage in a test of his powers, however, they quickly free him, and offer sanctuary to the fugitive family. But their benevolent offer masks dark intentions, and as the rest of The Thompsons make their way to the secluded safe haven, the American predators finally learn how it feels to be the prey.

Critic Reviews for The Thompsons

All Critics (1)

involves a clash not just of family values, but also of broad trans-Atlantic stereotypes, where the Hamiltons, far from their birthplace and out of their league, discover there is a reason their parents turned their back on the 'old country'.

(**): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Not as much fun as I was hoping. Fair at best.

I thought I'd check this out because I liked "The Hamiltons" but this movie isn't good. It tries to be good but really isn't. I liked the movie poster for this movie a lot-that is one of the main reasons I decided to watch. Skip this one unless you have nothing better to do.

★★1/2 (out of four) Not nearly as bad as I expected,"The Thompsons" is a sequel to the Butcher Brothers film "The Hamiltons". It has some pretty decently developed characters, but overall the movie can't quite distinguish itself enough from all the other vampire flicks. The Hamiltons have fled the U.S. and headed for England. They have now changed their name to Thompson. Once they arrive they learn of another family of vampires who are ferocious and probably hunting them. Cory Knauf as Francis is appealing and also cowrote the script. I just wish the story was more interesting. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/Zeppo1/ThompsonsThe_zps22159983.jpg[/IMG]
