I think this a really cute girly movie!
Alina Knorr
After struggling to get through the first 15 minutes, it was back to watching something even more stupid, like "Swamp People".
repeterson
This movie is cute, funny, has a moral punch and is overall surprisingly good campy fun.

Amy Heckerling's name on a film as director is usually enough to get me to watch it. She has an undeniable talent for presenting life lessons through her work while capturing a snapshot of a certain cultural time period, whether it be the 1980s through "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," the 1990s with "Clueless," or the 2000's with "Loser" and the CW's successful "Gossip Girl." "Vamps" is Heckerling's latest movie and continues the trend.

Goody (Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are modern day vampires living life to its fullest. Every night they feed on rats which are easy to come by thanks to the rodent control business they work for. They're part of a new movement of vampires who don't drink the blood of humans. After work, they hit the clubs and hot spots of New York City before heading home at dawn for a good day's sleep in their coffins.

The girl's soon begin to realize that being young forever isn't all it's cracked up to be. Goody has trouble adjusting to the modern technologies and trends of the 21st century. Stacy finds herself falling in love with the son (Dan Stevens) of the descendant of Van Helsing and longing to be human again. Unfortunately, the only way for the two to get their wishes of ending their immortality and getting on with their real human lives is by killing their maker, Cisserus (Sigourney Weaver).

Heckerling does a superb job exploring the mid-20s age range and our difficulty facing the fears we have or had of growing up and getting older. Being a woman in her late 50s, she has a lot of experience dealing with the subject matter. It just so happens this time around she uses vampires as her vehicle to deliver the messages.

This film has the satire for this vamp generation of movies that Young Frankenstein had for those certain classics. The actresses are great, and the appearances of stars-you-may-remember all make this a very fun movie. Very refreshing! The more you know about vampire mythology, the more you will enjoy the humor (a great Vlad the Impaler). A film that the "clueless" x-generation will enjoy.

Amy Heckerling (Director of Fast Times At Ridgemont High, writer director of Clueless) may not have the best track record for helming good movies. She did write and direct both Look Who's Talking and Look Who's Talking Too, and those movies were awful. Vamps however, is not. I always love a movie with supernatural elements coming out around Halloween. While this is a less traditional and more modern approach to a Vampire movie, they don't reinvent the mythos like Twilight did with having Vampires walking around during the day...which is stupid. Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, She's Out Of My League) and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, The Crush) star in this upbeat comedy about two socialite Vampire friends who start relationships and fall in love while being hunted by Vampire Hunters. There are some great cameos from Richard Lewis, Malcolm McDowell and Sigourney Weaver. The film is getting a very limited release on November 2nd, and you can own it on Blu-Ray on November 13th. Amy Heckerling may have made some bad movies, but she has also made some great movies like Fast Times At Ridgemont High and arguably Clueless and now Vamps. If you like movies like Once Bitten, or Vampires Kiss or other comedies about Vampires, or if you like Clueless, you'll enjoy this movie.

Reminds me of the 70's and 80's classic cheesy vamp movies like "Love at First Bite" with George Hamilton and Susan St James and "Once Bitten" with Jim Carrey and Lauren Hutton. It's cute, it's cheesy and it's got a great cast.

Vamps is a chick flick. It would most likely get a five star review at a Taylor Swift concert. Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter play two vampires in the modern dating era. Alicia dates back to the 1840's and has trouble adjusting to modern gadgets, while Krysten is at home with them. Both of the women develop love interests. Alicia meets an old boyfriend (Richard Lewis) from the 1960's while Krysten falls for a man named Van Helsing (Dan Stevens) who has a father who hunts vampires.

The Vamps are part of a support group who only drink animal blood. The jokes consist of mostly lame vampire humor such as women attempting to apply make-up without a mirror. There is one scene where Alicia is looking through pictures of old boyfriends. One of the pictures is Edgar Allen Poe. There were some scenes that worked and were funny. Unfortunately too much of the film had humor and scenes that didn't make it for a mature audience. Definitely only a rental. A sometimes fun film you might want to see once.

Parental Guide: 1-f-bomb, implied sex, no nudity.

This is definitively not everyone's kind of movie, but it reminded me of those cute cheesy 80's movies that are both campy and funny. You got the quirky and cute Kristen Ritter, and you have adorable Alicia Silverstone, who at first I was a little hesitant to watch. (Shes a mouth feeder, who knows what shes capable of!?)... I was delighted and happy after watching this...and that's all this movie is... entertainment. There are not profound meanings or philosophical type thoughts that will arise from this film...unless you want to talk about man's mortality and the possible idea of living forever...
Sigorney Weaver in my opinion, should have had more face time...but then again, I'm no expert.
I gave this a 4 out 5 rating because I love camp and cheese.
I love stupid movies both ironically and seriously.

The movie was like a Buffy episode... very Joss Whedon-esque
which reminds me, If this were a tv I'd watch it for sure.

The ending was cute too...

that's my review and ims sticking to it.
