Video geek Shepard 'Shep' Franco (Dan Merriman) uncovers a 135 year old videotape on which mad scientist Artemis Winthrop (Phip Barbour) displays a machine he's invented, which he believes can bridge dimensions. With his buddies Kim (Irene Joseph), Dave (Rob Monkiewicz), and Heather (Diane Di Gregorio), Shep tracks down the machine despite warings of Winthrop's great-granddaughter, a wiccan named Amelia (Liz Hurley). Shep restores the machine and while video taping it in action, a horrible accident transforms him into the ultimate tapehead (while unleashing killer bugs from another dimension and a few walking corpses along the way). Shep kidnaps Heather to turn her into his monster bride and only the intervention of the mysterious Amelia can halt the madness.
The Vermont International Film Festival is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community and bring the world to Vermont through film.
Launched in 2014 by a group of filmmakers, archivists and concerned members of the public who wished to ensure the survival of artists’ films in Vermont, VAMP officially became a program of VTIFF in May 2015. The VAMP committee has broadened the initial concept to include all types of films and videos made by VT filmmakers or shot in Vermont.
