boys Keith and A.J. have volunteered themselves to find erotic
entertainment for a big party thats going to happen tonight.
Needing someone with some money and a ride the two get their buddy
Duncan to tag along with them to help score some ladies of the
evening. Heading to The After Dark Club, our trio of friends hope
to score some tail, but they may have bitten off more than they
can chew, because the ladies at The After Dark Club will definitely
be looking to take a bite... out of them.
Want to know how to make a great 80s cheese cake vampire
movie? Here are some of the ingredients you will need: Lots of
day glow color schemes, Long Duck Dong from Sixteen Candles,
Rudy from Meatballs, Dedee Pfeiffer, Michelles lesser
known sister, An albino biker played by Billy Drago and finally,
throw in the uber funky Grace Jones as the evil Katrina. Take
all of that mix it together throw in some titties and blood and
you have Vamp, the movie that proved once and for all just
how useless Formica was against the undead.
If National Lampoon ever made a vampire flick Im guessing
Vamp would be it. This is a basic 80s college comedy with
a few vampires thrown in for good measure. Vamp tries to be a
horror movie at times, but I think its more of a comedy
and not really a dark one at that. But after re-watching this
one I did find myself thinking about how much From Dusk Till
Dawn may have borrowed from it in a few ways.
The vampires look good and Grace Jones does some impressive scenes
as Katrina and she looks really good under her layers of body
paint, but for some reason she never gets to say anything. The
rest of the cast, like I said above, is a potpourri of 80s
teen movie stars and thrown in Dedee as the romantic interest
and you have your movie, well you also have to include the side
plot involving Billy Dragos gang, then you have your movie.
There is a little blood splatter, some tried and true vampire
gags and just a little skin to keep you watching this one, but
not much else. Back in the day Vamp was OK and not much
has changed, except for the fact that everything about it was
done better in From Dusk Till Dawn, so maybe it borrowed
more than just a few things.
