I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to director Richard Wenk’s 1986 comedic horror film Vamp. Readers can also read Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was May 26, 1991 (read here). Not unlike Night of the Comet and Trancers (two 1984 flicks that also aired on Moviedrome), Vamp is little more than an enjoyable 1980’s low-budget B-movie, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

“Vamp is little more than an enjoyable 1980’s low-budget B-movie, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.” Absolutely correct.
Svangely I’m atwacked to Vampire movies. I don’t know vy.
I haven’t seen this one, John. I do remember it being released though. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Given that Alex Cox thinks “Vamp is the perfect Moviedrome film” I don’t think there’s anything else to say!
Exactly Pam 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
Check out Near Dark, which is a Neo-Noir/Neo-Western – it is right up your alley 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

Vamp,Trancers and Night of the Comet…..so much good 80s fun!! Trancers is really underrated,that was a very fun film….Full Moon created a lot of fun films including Puppetmaster and Dr. Modrid…..
I hear ya 🙂 Though you probably already knew this, Full Moon Features also distributed The Puppet Master series 🙂 Interesting isn’t it? 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
