The song Grace Jones dances to during her dance/stripping scene was sung by her, but it has never been commercially released as it was not included on the movie's soundtrack album. Titled "Vamp" on the credits, Jones released a heavily reworked version titled "Seduction Surrender" on her 1989 album "Bulletproof Heart". See more »
When Grace Jones is killed by sunlight. Her skeleton arm raises up and gives the finger to her destroyer. Just as the finger goes up, you can see a crew member's hands holding the other end of the skeleton's arm in the shot. This is only noticeable on the UK Blu-Ray, as the Anchor Bay DVD is slightly cropped. See more »

Delightful, Funny and Very Underrated Vampire Movie
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.
