While that other vampire-lite flick prepares to storm
theaters this winter, a cheekier movie mixing laughs with fangs will taking a
bite out of the big- and small-screen scenes, as Amy Heckerling’s VAMPS now has
a release plan.
Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced that it will open VAMPS in
limited theatrical release November 2, followed by DVD and Blu-ray November 13.
The film reunites writer/director Heckerling with her CLUELESS star Alicia
Silverstone; the latter and Krysten Ritter play Goody and Stacy, two beautiful
modern vampires in New York City navigating the world of humans, dealing with
romantic dilemmas (Stacy falls for the son of the latest incarnation of Dr. Van
Helsing, played by Wallace Shawn) and the threat of ancient bloodsucker queen
Cisserus (Sigourney Weaver). Dan Stevens, Richard Lewis, Justin Kirk and
Malcolm McDowell also star; the discs will include 16x9-enhanced 1.78:1 transfers
with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio on the DVD and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound on the
Blu-ray, with no special features yet announced. Retail prices are $22.98 for
the DVD, $24.99 for the Blu-ray. Heckerling and Silverstone discuss VAMPS in
Fango #318, out in October.
