It’s hard to define this (beautiful) film with better words than those used by Michael Sicinski on the winter 2013 issue of Cinema Scope magazine: “Heckerling’s film is funny, and the vampires who dominate pop culture today take themselves with undeadly seriousness. In Vamps, Heckerling has produced a film that is, in equal measure, silly, corny, besotted by cinema, melancholy, feminist, literate, childlike, commercial, and fully auteurist”. The story features two vampire women trying to fit in today’s world. They’re both non-drinkers (i.e., they don’t bite humans to quench their thirst and attend a self-help group for vampires of that condition). One is pretty older than the other and has already been disappointed with this living forever thing, while her roommate is at the height of falling in love and still hasn’t experienced the weight of loss. The story’s antagonist: the 21st century. Our heroine’s weapons: an unleashed classicism at both ends of the camera. The outcome: the good guys win. MP
