You may have heard of BAMCinematek's awesome "Hey Girlfriend! Lena Dunham Selects" series curated by none other than Dunham herself, the director and star of the Criterion-approved micro-indie "Tiny Furniture" and the writer, producer and co-star of "Girls," her upcoming HBO show also produced by Judd Apatow.

You may have heard of BAMCinematek's awesome "Hey Girlfriend! Lena Dunham Selects" series curated by none other than Dunham herself, the director and star of the Criterion-approved micro-indie "Tiny Furniture" and the writer, producer and co-star of "Girls," her upcoming HBO show also produced by Judd Apatow.

That eight-film series (tickets on sale here), which will feature in person appearances by Dunham, Nora Ephron, Whit Stillman, Chris Eigeman, and Claudia Weill and includes films like "The Last Days of Disco," "Clueless," and Weill's prizewinning debut "Girlfriends" from 1978, has added one more film to its slate: Amy Heckerling's long-awaited, toothy vampire comedy, "Vamps."

Marking the reunion of Heckerling with her "Clueless" star Alicia Silverstone, 17 years after the release of that now-classic teen movie, BAMcinématek will present the directors cut of "Vamps" on Saturday, April 7 at 6:50pm. Heckerling will appear in person at BAM for a Q&A after the movie.

The cast of "Vamps" is rather impressive too and includes "Breaking Bad" actress Krysten Ritter, Sigourney Weaver as a succubic queen, Wallace Shawn as Dr. Van Helsing, Kristen Johnston as Mrs. Van Helsing, Malcolm McDowell as a reformed Vlad the Impaler, "Downton Abbey" star Dan Stevens, "Weeds" star Justin Kirk as a Ukrainian vampire, Richard Lewis and Zak Orth. And that's not all as there are also cameos by Todd Barry, Marilu Henner, and even Taylor Negron reprising his role as “Pizza Guy” from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." It should be a helluva night at BAM.

While expected to hit sometime in 2012, "Vamps" -- described as a  tongue-in-cheek film with appropriately B-movie special effects --  has no U.S. release date yet, so this will be your first time to catch it if you live in Brooklyn, or the Tri-State area.
