What I thought:
So last night I stumbled onto this, rather, unusual movie. I hadn’t really heard of it but as a vampire fan I thought I’d give it a try. When it started I saw that Alicia Silverstone was in it and I love her, so it started off really well… and then just got weird.
The basic premise of the story is that Goody (Silverstone) has been a vampire since the 1800s and in the 1990s Stacey (Ritter) gets turned and they become best friends. Now they live in New York, living off rat blood and going to regular meetings to abstain from drinking human blood. Things suddenly get complicated when vampires are being forced into the daylight and Stacey falls in love with a Van Helsing.
The truth is the movie is complete ridiculousness, but I kinda loved every minute of it! Honestly, it’s meant to be though. It’s a quirky story full of silly characters and a funny storyline. Both Sliverstone and Ritter played their characters well and Weaver was hysterical in her role of the evil vampire.
If you’re in the mood for something ridiculous give Vamps a try. You might hate it, but you might just find (like I did) that you can’t stop watching and shed a tear at the end.
