Arrow's VAMP (on DVD and Blu) reviewed/compared

 REVIEW LINK: VAMP (Arrow Video R0 PAL DVD vs Anchor Bay R1 DVD) at DVDBeaver.

Richard Wenk's memorable eighties horror comedy VAMP will be hitting DVD and BluRay in the UK on February 7.  Frat pledges Keith (Chris Makepeace, MAZES AND MONSTERS) and AJ (Robert Rusler, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE) venture into downtown LA to secure strippers for a frat party and happen upon the After Dark Club where the strippers morph into grotesque, toothsome vamps and Grace Jones is their queen.  SIXTEEN CANDLES' Gedde Watanabe, Dedee Pfeiffer, and Billy Drago co-star. One of the many New World Pictures releases that Anchor Bay put out on DVD on US in 2001, VAMP was treated to a nice special edition with director/actor commentary, behind the scenes footage, and a short film by the director.  10 years later, Arrow Video has given it the HD-mastered treatment with a BluRay and a 2-disc DVD set.
