VAMP is an association for bloggers who write primarily about films made before 1980. The word "vintage" is used instead of the word "classic" for the simple fact that not every old movie is necessarily a classic, the word classic implying a level of greatness that not every film will possess. Nineteen eighty is simply an arbitrary cutoff point with the understanding that a film must be of some age to be considered "vintage." Many film bloggers might set the cutoff point for vintage films much earlier.
Given our abbreviation, silent actress Theda Bara, the vamp herself, is our mascot. If you wish to join VAMP, send an email to thevampb at gmail.com or a direct message on Twitter at VAMPblogs.
