Vamp (1986)

Vamp (1986)

"Grace Jones is looking for a few good men."

I remember seeing Vamp in the mid eighties and I remember enjoying it at the time. I haven't seen it since then. I'm left the impression that it was campy and fun and that Grace Jones made a good vampire. The leads were fun and the girl-in-distress was hot. I'm going to be putting this on my to-see list for a revisit.

IMDB provides the following: "Two fraternity pledges go to a sleazy bar looking for strippers to entertain their college friends. They have problems with transportation, Biker gangs, and worst of all, the staff of the bar, all of whom seem to be vampires, with Grace Jones playing the head vampire."

Vamp stars Chris "My Bodyguard" Makepeace, Robert "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2" Rusler and Gedde "Sixteen Candles - Long Duck Dong" Watanabe. DeDee Pfeiffer also stars along with, of course, Grace Jones.

Teenage Exorcist (1991)

Teenage Exorcist (1991)

Oh, the horror. Ugh. Yet another cheap direct to video horror flick from the early '90's. This one written by Fred Olen Ray and directed by Grant Austin Waldman. It stars Brinke Stevens and Michael Berryman.

IMDB describes the movie "Diane, a repressed, neurotic grad student, moves into a cursed mansion and is possessed by the house's demonic master.Transformed into a raven-haired, leather and lingerie-clad seductress, Diane seeks a virgin sacrifice for her master while her sister, brother-in-law, a priest, and a pizza boy try to rescue her and avoid his wrath." It's basically a lowball, cheezeball riff on the exorcist genre, trying desperately to be funny. Mileage may vary.

What brought this to my attention was the appearance of fan favorite actor from the 1970's, Robert Quarry, playing Father McFerrin.
