Vamp...'Camp' With an Edge, 12 November 2005
Author: Clarke-6 from United States

Well as usual most people don't get it. I mean the ones that gave it a low rating. This movie is what it is. Camp with an edge. And no, I don't mean 'camp' as in a 'gay' sense. Camp as 'outragously affected' or 'something self-consciously exaggerated'. Camp...Thanks in great part to Geddy Watanby. Playing the rich geeky college kid having to draw in 'pretend buddies' with his car and his money. He could be the best friend you'd never want to be seen with in public. Edge...Thanks to Snow and his crew. Here's a group I think we all wouldn't want to run into at a coffee shop late at night in a part of town where the majority of residence seem to be Vampires and sewer rats. Camp...Dedee Pfeiffer. An over the top upbeat perky cheery dancer/cocktail waitress whose neck has somehow escaped her vampire co-workers fangs. Edge & somewhat camp...The great and underrated Grace Jones. The head vampire whose eye-popping mouth dropping mesmerizing performance is only out done by her vampire persona (yes, somewhat camp), thanks to some great make-up and special effects. Edge...Location/scenes & music. For this you have to see the movie, speaks for itself. Camp...The copy cat 'Hitchcock' tilt camera effect. Although this was probably done hoping to effect the purpose that Hitch used it for, in a film such as Vamp, at least for me, it achieves a 'camp' effect drawn from the 'camp' side of this film.

I rated the film a 7. I rated this film for what it was, not for what I thought it should be. It was never intended to be a great cinematic piece of work. And it may not be the best 'camp' film either. But as a 'camp' film with an 'edge', it works out to be a solid 7.
