Film Review: Vamps

★★☆☆☆ Vamps is the latest project from Amy Heckerling, the filmmaker behind cult works such as Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless. It’s on the wackier end of the Heckerling scale (quite different from her most mainstream offering Gossip Girl) but still devoted to looking at what makes young people tick. The word ‘young’ should probably be accompanied with inverted commas in this instance since the women (Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter) at the heart of this movie are several decades later than they look, even though they are in university. They are the undead. Vampires, to be exact. But unlike their friend (Sigourney Weaver), they choose not to feast on humans. They eat animals.
