Written by - Hans Rodionoff

With nods to Janice Fischer & James Jeremias


Oh wow... this is the movie that came out of the efforts to make two other, very different movies.

Hans Rodionoff originally wrote a script about surfing werewolves titled The Tribe which was turned down by Warner Bros for its resemblance to The Lost Boys. The studio executives changed their mind when they filming on both Devil May Cry and Return of the Frogs fell apart, then persuaded Rodionoff to alter the script into this sequel, including changing the werewolves into vampires.
