VAMPS

Most people get tired of living the single life after a few years. Imagine doing it for a few centuries, and not being able to look in a mirror even once.

Goody (Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are best friends and roomies. They’re also vampires, but they try not to let that get in the way of leading perfectly good, non-murderous lives. Meanwhile, their stem (or sire), played by the stunning Sigourney Weaver, is in town, stirring up trouble. That’s when love, with its usual lousy sense for timing, decides to strike.

The supporting roles positively packed with faces you recognise (our personal favourite is Malcolm McDowell’s frantically knitting Vlad Tepes), the story is up-beat and funny as hell, while keeping its intelligence and feeling the whole way through.

But then again, what else is to be expected when Amy Heckerling, director of Clueless and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, decides to puts her teeth into vampirism?
