'Vamps' trailer promises 'Clueless' for vampires

Vamps was supposed to be released in 2011, but the delay seems worth it as the girly-vampire flick directed by Amy Heckerling (Clueless) and starring Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter gets the trailer treatment. Hitting theaters Nov. 2 (with a Nov. 13 DVD release) - just days before Breaking Dawn's's Nov. 16 premiere - the film focuses on Silverstone and Ritter's character living the undead life in NYC with a tight-knit vamp community when Ritter falls for the son of a vampire hunter. Also starring Justin Kirk (Animal Practice, Weeds), Dan Stevens (Downtown Abbey), Richard Lewis, Malcolm McDowell, Sigourney Weaver and Wallace Shawn (Vizzini!), the movie looks incredibly campy in the same infectious way that Clueless was. It is also Heckerling's return to film directing after a five year absence.

How do you think Vamps looks? Is this the kind of answer to Twilight you were looking for or is this just a little too late?
