Cult 80s comedy-horror movie Vamp on Blu-ray & DVD in October

22 July 2016

Arrow Video today announced the October Blu-ray and DVD release of Vamp, Richard Wenk's cult comedy-horror from 1986 featuring singer Grace Jones in what remains her most iconic film role.

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 Dawn, Vamp 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!

Vamp come to UK Blu-ray and DVD on 3rd October 2016 by Arrow Video at the RRP of £19.99 for the Blu-ray and £14.99 for the DVD.
