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

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

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

A quick, sloppy production of a throwaway script...it suffers from a pungent collective apathy that wafts off the screen from the cast and crew.

The results are predictable and only mildly entertaining.

January 1, 2000
An odd little ghoul too cleaned up to survive, a bloodless vampire movie that's mostly lifeless as well.
January 1, 2000
Even the good moments get sucked into the bizarre black holes of the story.

If you're expecting Haagen Dazs, prepare for ice milk instead. It's not a horrible film, but it's not a good one, either.

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

January 1, 2000
Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills' turgid score complements Edel's squatty direction, and Lipnicki overwhelms the other cast members with his nauseating cutesiness.
January 1, 2000
An unimaginative, low-budget feature that you would expect to be released as a direct-to-TV movie on a kids' cable network.

Some things just don't translate ... not with Lipnicki attached, at any rate. Stick with the books.
January 1, 2000
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.

January 1, 2000
A truly awful film that will frighten little children and drive parents mad with boredom.
January 1, 2000
Not to put a stake through the heart of The Little Vampire, but if little Lipnicki had more acting talent to go with his adorability, it might be a better movie.
January 1, 2000
Mildly entertaining but dramatically messy.
January 1, 2000
A nightmare of blandness.
Full Review | Original Score: D
January 1, 2000
Suffers from a somewhat scattershot plot and a markedly uneven tone that may render it too frightening for the pre-kindergarten set yet too bland for older audiences.
January 1, 2000
The movie badly needs either more vampire action or more golf. Maybe it needs golfing vampires.
January 1, 2000
The movie has a terminal case of the cutes.
