        80's cult vampire classic. Two college boys looking to impress their new frat brothers go looking for a stripper to take back to the frat house and win their trust/friendship/beer so they when they find the After Dark club they think they've hit the jackpot. Little do they know the place is run by vampires and along with a fellow unpopular but rich student who's tagged along and lovely but airheaded barmaid Dedee Pfeiffer, they need to find a way out or, well, y'know. Vamp is obviously totally chessey and doesn't look great today but thats part of its charm and the main characters are likeable, it is genuinely funny at times, is set mostly in a strip club and also has moments of gore. A must see for vampire fans.

        This film was very weird that had a crack at a comedy horror but without both aspects, it wouldn't fit into any genre if they weren't vampires. Even though the ending was good and the story was fun, it just lacked any sparks and didn't captivate you; see From Dusk Till Dawn for how this film should be like. The main character tried to be that slapstick likeable kind of guy but really wasn't, he came across as uninteresting. Though expectations were not high there was no excuse, some scenes should have been better overall there were good parts eg Bill Drago scenes but for the majority only a guilty pleasure with not much to offer the viewer.

        80s teen horror in the vein of films like Fright night in particular. 3 friends spend the night in seedy side of town lookijng for action, but coming up against vampires, lead by queen vampire Grace jones. it has its moments and certainly a product of this time. its a fun watch with bad acting and comedy horror but fun all the same.

        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?").
