Troma produced this movie; "Rockabilly
Vampire is a scary, sexy romp with rock-n-roll soul.
Luscious Iris M. Daugherty (Margaret Lancaster) is a
50's obsessed investigative author out to prove that
Elvis Presley is still alive. While conducting research,
she runs across a dead ringer for the King (Paul Stevenson)
who'd like to make her his Queen of the Damned. Seems
the pompadoured hunk was bitten by his vampire brother(Stephen
Blackehart), on the way to the Elvis look-a-like contest
back in 1956. Four decades later, he's loose in Manhattan.
Will Iris succumb to this surly, swingin' Nosferatu?

This is a sweet
little movie; sad girl meets sad vampire, and have sad
love affair. All the usual troma stuff; bad acting,
awful acting and really sad acting, with a lame script,
abysmal special effects and rotten editing. This one
does have a happy ending, of sorts.
How hard you
try, you really cannot make the argument, "it's
so bad it's good", because it really isn't. It's
just a sad little movie, that breaks Troma's only rule
- "Don't Be Boring". Yes, kids, it's a bore
In their deseration, they make much of it's
soundtrack - but even amateur 50s bands cannot save
this movie, especially when they just played a compilation
album onto the soundtrack, oblivious to whether it addeded
to the plot (what plot?).
Sorry, this isn't a
cult movie. One to watch once and move on.
Includes shouted introduction and a short
movie called Blonde Fury, which claimed to be a 'chick
flick'. It looked like a lame rip off of Thelma and
Louise. but I only watched five minutes. More than enough.
