When I heard that Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone (the ladies who brought us Clueless) were teaming up again to make a movie about vampires, I was intrigued and did a happy dance. Listen, I (like most of the world) love Clueless. And I have to admit, I do love vampires too. I watch True Blood and I’ve read all the Twilight books (don’t judge me). I haven’t seen all of Interview with a Vampire yet because Tom Cruise freaks me out now and I just can’t bring myself to see a prepubescent Kirsten Dunst make out with Brad Pitt.
Anyways, I was already excited that this movie was going to be Clueless-esque with vampires. And then, I realized something else while watching the trailer. Matthew “miracle legs” Crawley is in it, or as he’s known in real life, Dan Stevens! For those of you who don’t watch, Dan Stevens is from Downton Abbey and he’s part of a twosome on that show that I love so much. So obviously, now I’m even more excited to see this movie.
From the trailer, the plot seems to be about two lady vamps (Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter) who prowl the streets of New York looking for fun and men. Sidenote, but is anyone else thinking what would have happened if Carrie Bradshaw and the girls were vampires? One of the girls (Krysten) falls for a human with dreamy eyes (Dan Stevens) whose family is the Van Helsing clan (vampire hunters). Craziness ensues. There’s a vampire support group and vamps coming together to fight the hunters. And Wallace Shawn (Mr. Hall from Clueless) has a big role in the movie too! I can’t wait for this.
