Vamps (2012)

Amy Heckerling directs Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter and Sigourney Weaver in this comedy where two single gals share an apartment in Manhattan and just happen to be vampires.

Strange little production, seemingly filmed on the weekends with whomever was available. There’s a lot of faces packed in here but no sense of cohesiveness. It has the form of those three panel newspaper cartoon when they try to tells a story over days and weeks, one little set-up… set-up… punchline at a time. The gags rarely hit. The SFX are laughable. Yet the leads are cute and willing. The epilogue to all the nonsense is actually quite touching in a cheap but ambitious kinda way.
