If you thought From Dusk Till Dawn had creepy vampires, you should see the ones on Vamp. When two college students, Keith (Chris Makepeace) and A.J. (Robert Rustler), go on a road trip in search of a stripper for a frat house, with the help of their rich friend Duncan (Gedde Watanabe, who I remember best as Kuni from UHF), they find more than they bargained for.
During the drive, Keith, A.J., and Duncan spin out of control and wind up in a desolate area of the city. It’s strange that the city streets were busy just seconds ago and suddenly it’s a ghost town. Where did everybody go so fast?
The streets aren’t completely empty though. The alleys are crawling with albino thugs led by Snow (Billy Drago) who is a total psychopath. At first I thought they were vampires. The thugs didn’t seem to be, but they’re just as dangerous nonetheless.
Soon, Keith, A.J., and Duncan find the perfect place to find the stripper they were looking for, which is called The After Dark Club. There were many to choose from, but the one who truly stuck out was Katrina (Grace Jones). She never speaks, yet her performance on stage leaves everyone speechless.
Afterwards, A.J. is invited backstage to meet Katrina. She seduces him and reveals herself to be one of the scariest vampires I have ever seen while putting the bite on A.J. in a grotesque manner. Katrina must like to slurp.
Keith starts to get worried about A.J. and sets out to look for him while Duncan sticks around to watch the show. Helping Keith on the search is Amaretto (Dedee Pfeiffer) a stripper who claims to be Keith’s old friend from grade school. However, Keith doesn’t know her at all and it ticks her off. Maybe he would remember Amaretto if she would just tell him straight about who she really is.
As it turns out, Katrina is the primary queen vampire of the club and the other strippers are her vampire followers, including the announcer Vic (Sandy Baron) who is the Renfield of the group. I can tell because he eats insects and is Katrina’s most loyal slave. Vic has a dream to open a club in Vegas, which could be more beneficial, but no matter what Katrina is against it.
Since there can be no witnesses to live and tell about the vampires, Katrina and her followers try to kill Keith and Duncan before sunrise. Now it becomes a fight for survival. It won’t be easy with all of the vampires and albino thugs all over the neighborhood.
This was an interesting vampire movie. I guess you can say that Katrina is the silent but deadly type. Although it would be interesting to know why this dangerously seductive vampire woman never talks.
