Vamp U


Wayne Gretzky (no relation) is a vampire who can't grow his teeth. His impotence began when he inadvertently killed Mary Lipinsky, the love of his life, 300 years ago. To take his mind off the pain, he teaches college history - who better? Attempting to regain his full power, he enlists help from his friend and colleague, Dr. Levine (Gary Cole). Nothing works until a new semester brings freshman Chris Keller. She's a dead ringer for Mary and they have a lurid affair, while rumors fly around the campus. But it all sours when he turns Chris into a vampire and her newfound bloodlust spins out of control in a bloody rampage, making the rumors a little too real.


  • a hilarious, charming blast of fun. I guarantee you will have a good time with this original vampire comedy (which we really don't get too much of, VAMPIRES SUCK doesn't count). I heartily recommend VAMP-U!
  • a fun, quirky movie containing one awkward situation after another that comes together and will get you laughing as it reimagines the original Dracula story.
  • This movie out to be one of the most pleasant surprises I've had for quite some time. An out-and-out comedy, rather than a horror-comedy hybrid, this mines a rich vein of varsity humour while gently poking fun at the current vogue for vampires in popular culture. Horror fans and non-horror fans alike will both find much to enjoy in this well-written and well-performed movie.
  • Much more of a great horror film than it is a comedy, 'Vamp U' is a clever and entertaining vampire film with some clever storytelling devices, a sharp cast, and great atmosphere that hearkens back to the classic horror trash fests of the eighties. It's definitely worth watching for anyone in the mood for a film with its tongue firmly planted in cheek.
  • Vamp U is packed full of vampiry fun. I found myself laughing out loud through out the whole film. I would recommend this over and over to anyone looking for a charming little independent film that more than hits it's mark.
  • horror101withdrac: this is one indie treat that deserves a spot on horror fans' class schedules.
  • It's surely worth a watch. Recommended.
  • A vampire comedy that is actually funny. I had a genuinely good time with where the film was taking me and with its terrific ensemble cast.
