Horror Movie Posters I Love: Vamp (1986)

I’m sucker for fangs.  Ahhhhhh – see what I did there?  Unintentional puns are the best!  So it’s really no surprise that one of my favorite horror movie posters of all time is for the 1986 horror/comedy hybrid Vamp.

Quite honestly, it’s a gorgeous poster.  Now just a quick sidebar:  If you haven’t seen Vamp, then you might not get the subtle awesomeness of the poster.  This post is strictly about just that, so I won’t disclose my feelings on the actual movie (but with Grace Jones, vampires, boobs, and pure cheesiness – how can you go wrong?).

The poster is simple, but it works.  The red from the lips pops right off, with the ‘V’ and the ‘M’ in the title forming a pair of fangs of course.  This movie is about vampires, so fangs are a must somewhere on the poster.  The only thing I’m not jazzed about is the Vamp tagline “A Frightening Comedy“.  Meh.  Pretty boring and could have used something more fun and clever to coincide with the tone of the movie.  But overall, I honestly love this poster and would display it proudly on a wall next to my Grace Jones shrine.  Fangs for reading this post and look out for the next installment of ‘Horror Movie Posters I Love‘!
