Vampires (1986 film)

Vampires, also known as Abandon, is a 1986 horror film directed by Len Anthony and starring Duane Jones, John Bly, Jackie James, Orly Benyar, Kit Jones, and Robin Michaels; it was the final film of Duane Jones. The cinematographer was Ernest Dickerson, who later worked with Spike Lee and directed some episodes of horror TV show The Walking Dead.


The plot concerns mysterious events at a private girls' school in which the students' life-energy is drained by a mad scientist's machine. Subsequently the film was re-titled Abandon and included in a double bill on VHS with Anthony's later film Fright House, under the title of the latter movie. It was released on DVD in 2016.
