A group of frat boys visit a nightclub run by vampires where they have to fight for survival. The nightclub is situated in a barren, desolate, no-mans land section of town the police do not patrol and which is populated by non-club vampires and psychopathic, albino gangland thugs. After entering into this hellish underworld of murder, terror and life-threatening situations, the three frat boys and one innocent girl have to do their best to either escape or survive at least until dawn, whichever one comes first.
Despite being the influence to a certain Rodriguez/Tarantino project, Vamp might otherwise be remembered from hazy memories when the VHS rental reigned supreme. The cheese factor, from the script to the choice in actors are why Vamp remains such a guilty pleasure for me. As such, Vamp is a fun, if forgettable, little comedy horror, relying on Grace Jones' performance in altogether maintaining the film's appeal.
A somewhat forgettable 80's horror/comedy though not without being intermittently entertaining. Grace Jones steals every scene she's in and without so much as growling and looking awful in unconvincing vampire make-up. The experience is quite unimaginative but best viewed around 2:30 a.m.
The kid from "Meatballs" and the jock from "Nightmare on Elm Street 2" happen upon a strip club where the employees are vampires (sound familiar?). Sadly, the script struggles to keep the characters occupied for 90 minutes; nobody wanted to see Grace Jones take her clothes off; and, in a seemingly misguided homage to Dario Argento, the cinematographer managed to bathe every location in harsh pink and green lights.
