Movie Info

Predating the 1990s cycle of vampire-stripper films (From Dusk Till Dawn, Bordello of Blood, etc.) this cynical entry from director Richard Wenk concerns frat boys looking for a go-go girl to perform at their upcoming party. Wandering to the wrong side of town, the randy youths enter a seedy strip joint populated by vampires. Grace Jones is the nasty ringleader, Katrina, who acknowledges the film's debt to Hammer's Vampire Circus by performing an erotic dance painted in zebra-stripes. Among the

The original "From Dusk Til Dawn"...

Audience Reviews for Vamp

If nothing else, films like 'Eaten Alive' and 'Vamp' with their overriding influences to Tarantino represent important springboards. Regardless of the 'From Dusk Til Dawn' connection, 'Vamp' begins as a sublime hybrid of frat boy chemistry (the hanging hazing opening is a good misdirection) and vampire seduction, but it soon meanders aimlessly. One can accurately indicate when the film derails, it's after Robert Rusler departs midway through the film and the pink-neon lighting of a Joel Schumacher 'Batman' film becomes more incandescent. The androgynous Grace Jones is a rapturous creature in her Kabuki theater makeup and slender body, but she is hardly present until the deus ex machina finale. Additionally the puerile one-liners of a freshly vampiric Rusler is pure shtick ("I can work on this. Ever heard of night class?").

Fun cult horror from the 80s about a couple of frat boys who travel to a seedy stripclub with the aim of enticing one of their performers back to their college campus to impress the guys. Unknowingly to them, the club and surrounding area is full of vampires. It's limited with what it has to offer but it's energenic, fast-paced and quite amusing. The Vamp make-up effects and nicely done with Grace Jones looking terrifying with and without her vampiric appearance. Must-see for fans of 80s vampire films like Fright Night and The Lost Boys.

One of those fraternity comedies, but with vampires! A lot of fun, I liked this dark comedy.
