Plot: What’s it about?
Tasha (Jenny Wallace) runs one of the hottest strip clubs in town, as her girls have more bite than the rival dancers. But I don’t mean they’re better dancers, I mean they have sharper teeth, as in massive incisors. Yes, some of Tasha’s workers happen to be vampires and this doesn’t bother the owner either, as she is one of them herself. Tasha and her little band of vamps seem to do very well, by feeding whenever they please and adding new members, if anyone good enough shows up at the joint. This is the case when Heather (Jennifer Huss) arrives, as she has all the elements the vamps could want and as such, they plan on sucking her in very soon. But Heather isn’t the kind of girl to want that, as she is just a normal girl in search of some quick cash, in an effort to fund her college education. Tasha and her vixens can be tough to refuse however, which means Heather will need some help and even then, it won’t be a simple task to overcome their forces.
Let’s see here…we have a bunch of hot chicks, a strip club, and a vampire theme, sounds like a winner to me. This one has more flesh than blood, but it does pack more of the red stuff than most of these kind of flicks, to be sure. You’ll see some spurts and drips of blood, which is good since this is a vampire movie, but I do wish there was more gore involved. Even so, there’s enough nudity to keep your attention and man, I mean there’s a lot of nudity involved. In other words, if you don’t like seeing various naked women on the screen at almost all times, Vamps isn’t the flick you’ll want to pick up, to say the least. And just who might these nubile, naked chicks be? Such performers as Jennifer Huss, Amber Newman, Jenny Wallace, and Stacey Sparks are all present, as well as all sorts of other hotties to feast thine eyes upon. The rest of the movie is pretty weak, but the bad writing is often hilarious and that adds entertainment value, if you ask me. This one’s recommended to fans of naked vampires, who will more than get their money’s worth with Vamps.
Video: How does it look?
Vamps: Deadly Dreamgirls is presented in a full frame transfer, as intended. This is a very low budget movie and as such, the image is not up to the usual standards, to be sure. The image is very soft and shows a lot of grain, which can lessen the visual impact. Even so, the basics come through and that’s what counts here, so long as the girls can be seen. I do wish this was a cleaner, more refined visual treatment, but given the condition of the materials and techniques used to shoot the movie, I doubt it will get much better than this.
Audio: How does it sound?
I don’t think anyone will be let down with the included stereo option, but then again, it won’t be good as a demonstration track either. This was a low budget movie and as such, it doesn’t have much in terms of audio demands, so this track is more than adequate. I found the dialogue to be a little muffled at times, but it was usually smooth and well presented. Not much to discuss as far as music and sound effects, but the elements are in decent enough form, enough said. As I mentioned, this is by no means a stellar audio option, but it handles the material just fine and in the end, that’s what counts, I think.
Supplements: What are the extras?
As with most Shock-O-Rama releases, this one comes with some cool bonus materials, such as a special erotic short. The piece is titled I’m Ready For My Close-Up and stars Jenny Wallace, so if you like her at all, you should be pleased with this bonus short film. You’ll also find special messages from director Mark Burchett, cinematographer Jeff Barklage, and star Lorissa McComas, which are worth a look. This disc also includes the film’s trailer, as well as a large number of bonus trailers, for Shock-O-Rama and Seduction Cinema releases.
