'Vamp' Gets Arrow Video Treatment in October


Vamp, one of the weirdest vampire films you will ever have the pleasure of seeing is set to get the excellent Arrow Video treatment on October the 4th. Featuring Robert Rusler (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge) and the legendary Grace Jones (Conan the Destroyer), Vamp first hit theaters in 1986. The good folks over at Arrow have dusted it off, restored the film, and chocked the Blu-Ray with all sorts of goodness. Check out the synopsis and the extra features contained in the new release below. You can pre-order Vamp from Amazon HERE and MVD HERE.

"Two fraternity pledges head to a seedy part of town to find some entertainment for their college friends but are faced with bloodthirsty vampires! Keith (Chris Makepeace, Meatballs) and AJ (Robert Rusler, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge) want to make the right impression at college and so they devise a plan to get them into the best frathouse on campus. They head to the After Dark Club where they want to find a stripper for a party their friends won't forget, instead they find themselves among vampires led by Kinky Katrina (Grace Jones, A View to a Kill)! 

Almost certainly an influence on From Dusk til DawnVamp is superbly designed by many of Grace Jones' own award-winning collaborators and features stunning effects by four-time Oscar winner Greg Cannom (The Lost Boys, Bram Stoker's Dracula). Delivering laughs and scares in equal measure, with the added bonus of vampy sex appeal, Vamp is a comedy horror romp with real bite!"
