Vamp (1986)

Vamp is cult, which usually means a viewer will either love it or hate it; but, personally, I was indifferent to its mixed genre charms. The comedy didn't make me laugh and the three main characters were each bordering on being insufferable US College types. To be honest, I've never understood the appeal of frat house movies.
Nevertheless, I applaud whoever it was that decided upon the unique visual look and stuck to it (even in the sewers) when it was clearly unrealistic. The practical effects are entertaining and, amazingly, Grace Jones was a good choice for the fiend; she gives me the wiggins even without make up.
