“Vamps” certainly earns points for trying. It’s encouraging to see writer/director Amy Heckerling this creatively animated again, after her last two features, 2000’s “Loser” and 2007’s “I Could Never Be Your Woman” were colossal failures, suggesting an onset of lethargy for a filmmaker who made her name with such spunky hits as “Clueless,” “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” and “Look Who’s Talking.” Heckerling goes for broke with “Vamps,” blending an anti-technology rant with a romantic comedy about monsters, tossing in some flashes of horror and reverence for classic cinema for good measure.
