    Vamps Bites at the Box Office: Clueless Reunion Makes $500

    If you were clueless about this weekend's big-screen Clueless reunion, you weren't alone.

    Vamps, the new vampire comedy from Alicia Silverstone and writer-director Amy Heckerling, grossed all of $500 at the Friday-Sunday box office, per Exhibitor Relations stats.

    The low-budget, low-profile indie, which has been available on digital demand, opened in one theater in New York en route to a planned Nov. 13 DVD release.

    Reviews for Vamps weren't great; they weren't all bad, either. "Make no mistake," the Los Angeles Times said, "Vamps is mostly a misfire, but Heckerling still shows enough flashes of wit and wisdom that she remains hard to entirely dismiss."

    Box-office-wise, the film was up there, as it were, with the wide-release, holdover flops, Fun Size, which averaged $756 at each of its 3,000-plus screens, and Chasing Mavericks, which scored $621 from its 2,000 theaters.

    Heckerling, whose hits include Fast Times at Ridgemont High, helped propel Silverstone to fame with the $56 million-grossing 1995 teen comedy, Clueless.

    "I love Alicia, she is the greatest girl in the universe," Heckerling told Indiewire in a Q&A promoting Vamps.

    The new movie costars Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23's Krysten Ritter, and a features a third Clueless alum, actor Wallace Shawn.
