4.0 out of 5 stars Great Release for a very good Teen Vamp film. 4 Mar 2012
By I love New York VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After almost 2 decades (maybe more) I finally got round to watching Vamp again and was glad I did.

Well shot and doesn't look like it has dated wither Arrow give it a fine transfer and in Blu Ray it looks Great. I love the locations used in Downtown Los Angeles and the seedy back streets and neighbourhood in general, gives a great backdrop for the storyline.

f you like films like Fright Night (original)and Salem's Lot (original) you should enjoy this film.

4 Stars for a good film and great extras from Arrow.

4.0 out of 5 stars From kid's TV to DVD 12 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's good to be able to get hold of a quality DVD of this after years of trying to catch it on TV. I first saw this as a youngster and while it hasn't stood the test of time perfectly, it's still an imaginative and original comedy horror caper.

Grace Jones, one suspects, was one of the central selling points for the film originally, but while she does a fine job (mostly non-speaking) of leading a coven of blood sucking harpies, it's other elements of the film that hold the attention. The set design and lighting are both imaginative. It might not be the only film from the 1980s to have used pink and green neon lights, but it's certainly a fine example of how to make the city by night even more alien and disorientating.

Following on from this, the way the neighbourhood around the After Dark club is set up as something of a world unto itself is a nice touch. The seedy hotel, the diner, the grungy street gangs who somewhat confusingly seem to be both vampires and in conflict with vampires at the same time... Taking this further, the vampires' backstory is mentioned in a scene towards the end of the film, although like the characters, is never really properly developed.

Still, the film has at least some kind of, er, logic to it. Vamp is mainly about visual style, and when you add in the fact that Keith Haring contributed to the look of some of the club scenes (Grace Jones' body paint), it's fair to say that this is a quintessential 80s horror film: All fangs and no knickers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitive 80s enjoyable sillyness 2 April 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Ah Vamp. It's been a long wait for this typically mid-80s cheese fest to arrive on dvd, not least Blu Ray, in a presentation that befits its reverence in my house. And another great package from Arrow Video. If I won the lottery I'd create a company like Arrow that gleefully release films that obviously they enjoyed as teenagers and that deservedly merit release now amongst a bunch of conveyer belt bull that festers in over priced cineplexes the length and breadth of the country.
But Vamp. A collection of great special effects, decent acting, Dedee Pfeiffer, fast paced script and generally satisfying all through. Made at a time before every film had to have special effects made by some eastern european 20 year old sat at a computer knocking out scene after scene of brain dead and weightless rubbish taking direction from some talentless director in another country over the phone.
There's more invention in this film than a dozen recent alleged 'horror' films.

Not a great film by any stretch of the imagination but an enjoyable 90 odd minutes of daftness, amusement and proper fx scenes in a film that knows its audience and has fun in the process.
Silly but recommended.

Although not so well known now, this was a hit on video on New World in the mid 80s and will appeal to children of the VHS era and fans of 80s tongue in cheek, stylish horror. I love it and love movies from the decade. Some will call it cheesy or dated, but I don't see that - I love the neon lighting, cuddly cute Dedee Pfeiffer, the yuppies, the incidental music, the songs and OF COURSE the brilliant and sexy Grace Jones. She steals the show and reminds you of that sexy, sophisticated girl in Fright Night Part II (when oh when will we get it on Blu or even DVD???) or Marsha A Hunt in Howling II (another must own 80s classic).

Arrow have come up with the goods on this Blu-ray, looking fantastic and sounding great, the movie really shines and watching it again I forgot all about that eerie atmosphere it has in that deserted side of town! The extras are really good too. Buy!!!

I reckon this, Fright Night I & II (not that appaling remake), Howling II (and III), Demons 1 & 2, The Lost Boys and Doppleganger are great horror movies that define the era with the music video look, if anyone can think of any I missed let me know

4.0 out of 5 stars Slave to the Rythmn 11 July 2012
Format:DVD
Grace Jones as vampire stripper Katrina is really the selling point for this mid-1980s Comedy Horror. Jones strikes a bizarre yet somehow appealing figure, and her natural elegance and fearsome demeanour make her perfect for such a role. Other than GJ, this remains a decent watch - Chris Makepeace and Robert Rusler are likeable leads and Deedee Pfeiffer provides energetic and visually appealing support as bubbly waitress Amaretto. Highly stylised, full of disorienting neon lighting, and with a well rendered seedy backdrop, Vamp is a typical slice of Eighties cinema in all its garish pulsating glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the upgrade. 22 Feb 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
In order to Join a fraternity Keith and Aj must find a stripper for the frat brothers, heading to the wrong side of town they discover a strip club called the after dark club where all is not what it seems, and the strippers are after more than just the cash in your wallett! Vamp is one of those long neglected eighties classics previously only available on the decent anchor bay us release, bought by horror fans like myself who first caught the movie on late night telly. Its very cheesy, sure but vamp is also very entertaining with some pretty good acting excellent cinematography and use of color and manages to mix horror and humour in exactly the right doses, and I cant help but think quentin tarantino and robert rodriguez took a look at this before making dusk till dawn. If you havent seen this film yet buy it!
The question is for fans, is it worth the upgrade to blu-ray? I have to admit even after the terriffic jobs done on city of the living dead, inferno et al I was still unconvinced, as the anchor bay disc looks fine on upscale through my phillips dvd player with HDMI. Well arrows version looks BETTER. The colors have never looked so vibrant, with the reds and greens looking far richer than in any dvd upscale. The picture is razor sharp with minor amounts of grain and the sound mix is fantastic, i'm ebaying my anchor bay disc!
Extras wise, as usual Arrow have laid it on to give the fans an excellent package.
*Audio commentary with star Robert rusler and critic callum waddell.
*Introduction by robert rusler.
*Vamp it up-Dedee pheiffer remembers the after dark club.
*Vamp stripped bare-an interview with robert wenk.
*back to the 80's, producing a campy cult classic.
*scrapbook of scares-richard wenk looks over his collection of vamp memorabilia.
