Dark movie may frighten some kids.

Vampire cows provide comic relief and many of the scares in this respectfully dark yet optimistic story about a lonely child who befriends a vampire.

The Little Vampire is hardly a children's classic, and it will doubtlessly be more at home after it hits the video shelves.

Much of the film's success is down to the costume design, the novel SFX and the mildly foreboding atmosphere of the mist enshrouded Scottish countryside.

It's an occupational hazard that you actually have to try to think about movies like this, which just get weirder and weirder the more you consider them.

Lipnicki has learned how to make cute faces, but his delivery is formulaic and without emotion.

Evocative of Tim Burton's work, the Scottish locations appear as a kind of ghoulish theme park full of ancient stately homes and mouldering, curse-ridden crypts.

Excellent stuff -- it won't just be kids that love this film!

A sprightly romp, funny, full of life lessons, and scary.

The characters are engaging and so is the story.

The monsters in The Little Vampire are considerably toned down from the frightening undead of the Dracula myth. Now they're just the thing to entertain grade-school trick-or-treaters.

Successfully subverts traditional representations of the undead.

Karey Kirkpatrick and Larry Wilson's script is very saccharine, meanders all over the place, has barely realized characters, and is boring in parts.

Yes, the movie will hold the tots' attention. But should that be ample reason to subject your children to such a shoddy product? I don't think so.

Not often does a family film come along that is literate, clever, mischievous and just plain fun.

The basic idea which drives this jolly film, along with Lipnicki's charm, is sometimes almost enough.
