Vamp (1986)

Written by: Richard Wenk, Donald P. Borchers

Directed by: Richard Wenk

Cast: Chris Makepeace (Keith), Robert Rusler (A.J.), Dedee Pfeiffer (Allison), Sandy Baron (Vic), Gedde Watanabe (Duncan), Billy Drago (Snow), Grace Jones (Katrina).

Sometimes some pretty influential stuff by some pretty talented filmmakers has to season into its own. After being around long enough to see something make its debut, fall into obscurity for a couple of decades, be lovingly put on life support by loyal fans, and then rise like a phoenix to the accolades it deserved all along, I’ve got some perspective. That perspective is more than affirmed with “Vamp”. This 1986 horror comedy was well ahead of its time, and was influential in more ways than one.

Vamp had the pedigree of being a New World Picture. That may or may not seem obscure, but Cannon and New World »

Richard Wenk's 1986 horror comedy is even better than we remember -- funny, reasonably scary, and stylish. Grace Jones' vampire queen is intimidatingly strange, and great makeup effects and polished direction insure that the jokes and chills get equal attention.

There's a lot of love for '80s pictures out there, mainly because the kids who went to see them back in the day are now in their forties and are beginning to feel pangs of nostalgia, »
