Vamps stars Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter as two beautiful ladies who are addicted to the nightlife, clubbing and always searching for the next thrill in their lives. Goody (Silverstone) and Stacy (Ritter) may seem to be the typical party girls but they have a big secret, they are actually modern day vampires. Although they have spent lifetimes partying and dating the girls still have a lot to learn when it comes to love. Stacy falls in love with a young guy who happens to be the son of a vampire hunter while Goody meets once again the man of her dreams after decades. The two now faces a choice, give up their eternity and take a chance with love or forever live a fabulous single life. The vampire theme is certainly becoming more and more appealing to the big screen. Let’s take a look at what new things can be expected with this upcoming film: Vamps.
“Vamps A New Comedy Film Starring Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter
Director Amy Heckerling captured the voice of a generation with the 80’s hit Fast Times at Ridgemont High. In the 90’s, she struck gold again with a modern version of Jane Austin’s Emma called Clueless. Her latest film, Vamps, starring Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter, is an odd film that wants to be cute and charming but also be a commentary on modern society, however, it doesn’t really succeed with either.
Alicia Silverstone is Goody, a 120 year-old vampire living as a modern girl in New York City with her newly turned vamp bestie Stacy (Krysten Ritter). The two have sworn off humans in favor of rats, which they drink like a furry Capri Sun. Shunning the traditional name vampire they prefer to be called ELF’s, Eternal Life Forms. The two spend their evenings going to college, working for an extermination company and going to ELF support groups, where they are joined by Vlad Tempesh (Malcolm McDowell) who now spends his time knitting.
For the most part, the girls have a good life. Unfortunately, their maker is a crazy ego-maniac by the name of Cisserus (Sigourney Weaver). And while all the other ELF’s are trying to keep a low profile, Cisserus is living the high life and drawing much attention to herself, meaning it’s only a matter of time before Dr. Van Helsing (Wallace Shawn) finds them. To further complicate matters, Stacy starts dating Joey (Dan Stevens), Dr. Van Helsing’s son. The girls must figure out how make it in this crazy modern world without their secret being exposed.
It’s important with any vampire film to understand the kind of vampire you are dealing with. And smartly, most of it’s vampire troupes come from the Dracula legend. These vamps can’t go in the sun, sleep in dirt from their home town, can hypnotise people and climb down walls. So you’ll be glad to know, there aren’t any sparkling vampires here.”
