Did You Know?


Billy Drago actually has very dark hair. He bleached his hair white, including his eyebrows, in order to portray the albino gang leader, Snow. See more »


After the car spins around very unrealistically, the scenery directly in front of the car is obviously a painted backdrop. In addition to all the objects ahead clearly being a painting, the other giveaway is how the "scenery" meets the roadway. See more »


Keith: Make sure I don't come back like you, OK?
AJ: Hey, you think I like this? Or them? They're boring creeps! They don't call them walking dead for nothing! Try talking to one of them sometime.
Keith: I am.

Delightful, Funny and Very Underrated Vampire Movie
7 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

In Kansas, the friends Keith (Chris Makepeace) and AJ (Robert Rusler) are trying to join the best fraternity in the university. Their pledge is conditioned to the presence of a stripper to entertain the veteran's members of the fraternity. They need transportation to go to the city to hire a stripper, so they invite the boring Duncan (Gedde Watanabe) to go with them in his car. They arrive in a bar called "After Dark Club" and soon they realize that the place is a nest of vampires, leaded by the evil Katrina (Grace Jones).

"Vamp" is a delightful, funny and very underrated vampire cult-movie. I do not know how many times I have watched this movie, but I loved it and it is one of my favorite vampire movies ever. It is funny to see in 2005, a common pre-AIDS gesture of affection between boy-friends and girl-friends: when Keith cuts his finger, Allison (Dedee Pfeiffer) sucks his blood. I found the IMDb User Rating extremely unfair and I really do not agree with such low rating. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vamp: A Noite dos Vampiros" ("Vamp: The Night of the Vampires")

Note: On 11 November 2013, I saw this movie again.
