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.
July 24, 2006
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.

December 3, 2002
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.

Bram Stoker, F.W. Muranu, and Bela Lugosi would turn over in their graves if they found out.

The costumes are neat, the photography is great -- all the pieces are on hand, but they don't fit.

It's refreshing to see a kids' film taking on such sinister subject matter.

Some things just don't translate ... not with Lipnicki attached, at any rate. Stick with the books.

For adults, the film will drag in spots, but it's filled with all those values you hope to instill in your children.

A surprisingly enjoyable film that its young target audience will love, while their parents will find it quite tolerable indeed.

This chomper is too kid-comedy-ish to cater to adults and a tad too scary for the little ones.

Several children in the audience at the screening I attended were visibly upset.
