At a prestigious New England Prep school things are going terribly wrong. With a unique spin on the vampire genre, full of camp, heavy synth music and thought-provoking horror, Vampires is the perfect timestamp of 80's schlock cinema. The film takes us to a stately private school where something is amiss with the student body. Ione (Orly Benyar) is excited to begin the next chapter of her life when she is awarded a scholarship to attend a prestigious art school at the Abadon estate... which also happens to have a distant history of working with the criminally insane. Soon after arriving at the school, she realizes that there are some missing students that no one can seem to account for. While searching for answers, Ione encounters Dr. Charles Harmon (Duane Jones, the doomed hero from horror classic Night of the Living Dead), who begins to tell her about Madeline Abadon (Jackie James) and her quest to suck the youth from the student body in order to gain immortality. Charles is then encumbered with the harrowing task of disarming Madeline and her "mad scientist" machine, but will he be able to end the demonic evil on campus before it's too late? Originally filmed as the second part of the 1989 cult anthology classic, Fright House, this would be Len Anthony's last film. Principal cinematographer Ernest Dickerson went on to shoot Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing and direct several episodes of the classic horror TV series, The Walking Dead.
