It has been a long while since we have heard any news on Amy Heckerling’s upcoming horror comedy Vamps, but at long last details have been announced. We now know the theater release date, as well as the DVD and Blu-ray release date. It’s about time!
It turns out that Anchor Bay Films is only sending Vamps out in a limited theatrical release on November 2nd, which will then be shortly followed by Blu-ray and DVD release on November 13th. The exact theaters have yet to be revealed, but I’m sure the announcement will be made soon.
“Starring Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, Batman & Robin), Krysten Ritter (“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” Confessions of a Shopaholic), Wallace Shawn (Toy Story, Princess Bride), and Sigourney Weaver (Aliens, Avatar), the film combines the fun of the classic hit Clueless with the tremendous popularity of vampires.
Beautiful vampires Goody (Silverstone) and Stacy (Ritter) have been enjoying the good life in New York City. As upstanding, politically correct Extended Life Forms (ELFs), the pair hit a support group, “Sanguines Anonymous,” to help curb the temptation of human blood in between their clubbing and dating schedules. When love steals into each of their lives, the pair’s destiny is set on a new course and they must make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality—and maybe much more.
Written and directed by Amy Heckerling, Vamps is a comedy-fantasy-romance that puts a fresh and hilariously upbeat twist on the vampire genre. The film also stars Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), Richard Lewis (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), Kristen Johnston (Bride Wars), Malcolm McDowell (The Artist, A Clockwork Orange), Zak Orth (Romeo + Juliet), and Marilu Henner (Johnny Dangerously).
Who here is excited about this movie? I am actually looking forward to it now. I thought it sounded ridiculous at first, but my curiosity has come into play.
