The horror comedy is sharpening its fangs for Blu-ray in October.  

In an early announcement to retailers, Arrow Video is preparing 'Vamp' for Blu-ray on October 4.

Two fraternity pledges head to a seedy part of town to find some entertainment for their college friends but are faced with bloodthirsty vampires! Keith (Chris Makepeace, Meatballs) and AJ (Robert Rusler, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy s Revenge) want to make the right impression at college and so they devise a plan to get them into the best frathouse on campus. They head to the After Dark Club where they want to find a stripper for a party their friends won t forget, instead they find themselves among vampires led by Kinky Katrina (Grace Jones, A View to a Kill)! Almost certainly an influence on From Dusk til Dawn, Vamp is superbly designed by many of Grace Jones own award-winning collaborators and features stunning effects by four-time Oscar winner Greg Cannom (The Lost Boys, Bram Stoker s Dracula). Delivering laughs and scares in equal measure, with the added bonus of vampy sex appeal, Vamp is a comedy horror romp with real bite!

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an LPCM mono soundtrack, and supplements will include: One of those Nights: The Making of Vamp - a brand new documentary featuring interviews with director Richard Wenk, stars Robert Rusler, Dedee Pfeiffer, Gedde Watanabe; Behind-the-scenes rehearsals; Blooper Reel; Image gallery; Dracula Bites the Big Apple (1979) - Richard Wenk's celebrated short film; and a Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by the Twins of Evil.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
