Trivia

The song Grace Jones dances to during her dance/stripping scene was sung by her, but it has never been commercially released as it was not included on the movie's soundtrack album. Titled "Vamp" on the credits, Jones released a heavily reworked version titled "Seduction Surrender" on her 1989 album "Bulletproof Heart". See more »

Love at first bite
21 April 2003 | by thomaspembertonSee all my reviews

This has to be the most underrated vamp flick that i have come across, most could be put off by bottom shelf, fading icon Chris Makepiece gurning his way through frat-cliche after another, but sit tight and you will become witness to invention in a low budget movie not seen since the likes of The Black Gestapo and You can't buy love. Grace Jones makes compelling viewing as the said vamp and the soundtrack is a lesson in the tried and tested sublime to the ridiculous pitch. All in all this is a quality movie and very creepy i might add, could have toned down the pink and green lighting though (maybe Jerry Bruckheimer got a job onset as exec producer)
