Despite fine scenery-chewing by old hams Sigourney Weaver and Malcolm McDowell (as a swishy Vlad the Impaler), the film’s comedic potential is defanged by a pervading tone of embittered nostalgia. Goody doesn’t mock our smartphone-loving society with barbed affection – she just wants it to go away. Vamps is commendable as a raw-nerve confession of anachronism – but it’s also what keeps this strained satire from drawing any real blood.
