I have been a fan of this film since I recorded it on to video when it premiered on BBC 1 late at night in the early ninties. Sadly, I thought it was a great idea to record over it with Jaws 3 but I was wrong.

I was browsing Amazon one day when I thought about this film. I never realised that there as a DVD release. I didn't hesitate to order it. The film has a great blend of horror and comedy which will please any fan of the genre. The excellent Grace Jones stars as Katrina, the owner of The After Dark Club, who has a little 'bite' to her. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but Ms Jones's strip number has to be seen to be believed, she also provides a song for the soundtrack which fits her character perfectly. The neon lights inside and outside set the mood which has a feeling of "We're not in Kansas anymore" as the group finds themselves seemingly trapped in downtown L.A. surrounded by vampires and chased by a gang of albinos. (yes, albinos).

The DVD is very well put together by Anchor Bay. It features a commentary, featuring the director and the cast, which is one of the best commentaries I have heard, behind the scenes rehearsal footage, blooper reel, two trailes, seven tv spots, poster and stills gallery. The DVD is also region free as I was able to watch it on my Playstation 3.

A hidden gem.

Format: DVD
Mild-mannered college student Keith (Chris Makepeace), his more brash smooth-talking best buddy A.J. (Robert Rusler) and hopelessly geeky wannabe hip nerd Duncan (the hilarious Gedde Watanabe) venture into a dark, remote and dangerous Los Angeles neighborhood in search of a stripper for an upcoming fraternity party. The trio discover the seedy and sinister nocturnal establishment the After Dark Club, where our protagonists find out much to their dismay that the diabolical main attraction Katrina played by Grace Jones and the rest of the club's staff are all vampires who are eager to take a lethal bite out of the boys. This isn't as good as Fright Night, The Lost Boys or Near Dark, but it's a very likable blend of horror and comedy. Writer/director Richard Wenk offers a winningly quirky, fun and clever blend of offbeat black humor and straightforward gruesome horror, ably creating and sustaining a properly seamy and spooky oddball nighttime atmosphere, keeping the pace snappy and steady throughout. Visually, Vamp is pretty cool stuff. As soon as it gets dark, the film adopts a brilliant colourscheme of pink and green lighting, making for some atmospheric action. It doesn't look realistic, but who cares? It looks great, and gives Vamp a identity all of its own. It also means that this film belongs to that category of 80's films that you couldn't imagine being made in any other decade, though the plot and even the vampiric make-up effects seem to have played an influential part in the making of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's cult bloodsucker favourite From Dusk Till Dawn. Also appearing in nifty supporting parts are Dedee Pfeiffer as an endearingly ditsy waitress, Sandy Baron as the sleazy club emcee and the ever-reptilian Billy Drago as a creepy albino street gang leader.Read more ›

this movie is for all the true fans of the eighties, a great typical eighties score, cheesy acting, crazy ideas, cool dudes and sexy babes, oh and in this case Grace Jones(!). you got the full monty here!
sure this is a low budget on the weekend written cheesy horrorflick, but hey, exactly that's it what makes this movie so entertaining! you have Dedee Pfeiffer, the younger sister of Michelle Pfeiffer (yes her!), don't need to mention that Dedee is as hot, you have Robert Rusler of short but cool eighties fame, cool old school vampire effects by Greg Cannom (Night of the Living Dead, the Remake, Coppola's version of Dracula)! and except the vampires you have six coffees at your tail, led by Snowflake (Billy Drago)!
also you have a great visual style at your hands, on your eyes, reminiscent of movie like Argento's Suspiria and other great italian flicks, you have fun, gore, crazy stuff, great music!
the dvd itself, hey anchorbay man!
brilliant picture and sound, plenty of bonus material, audiocommentary, a short film, a bunch of trailers, bloopers a picture gallery, lovely artwork!
go buy, see, be happy!

It's the eighties. Grace Jones runs a nightclub. And she's a vampire. This is one of those movies that I think I first rented at the 24-hour video shop when whatever I'd actually come in looking for was unavailable. And what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. Actually, by accident probably IS a good way to happen upon this little classic, the better for it to work its gonzo charms upon the viewer. It's become something of a word-of-mouth cult, glimpsed a couple of times on late night TV (Alex Cox showed it in his late, lamented Moviedrome slot) searched for and discovered in bargain bins and, yes, cherished. Now it's out again in a shiny new edition, looking great for its age and showing up many a later film that tried to walk in its weird little shoes. You'll watch this more than once.
