STAYING YOUNG IS GETTING OLD

3 out of 5 stars

Goody (Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are vampires living in modern Manhattan. They abstain from human blood and are creatures of the night. Their lives become complicated when Stacy dates Joey van Helsing, whose family descends from a line of vampire hunters.

This is like a mini Clueless reunion with director Amy Heckerling and actors Alicia Silverstone and Wallace Shawn! Of course, the other draw of the movie is Dan Stevens! I heard a few gasps the moment his face lit up the screen.

It has plenty of witty dialogue, especially from Goody since she’s one of the oldest character in the film and she disses social media and other “advances” in technology. There’s also certain vampire myths that are tested here and some with hilarious results (re: mirrors). But for those expecting something like Clueless, you won’t find it here.
