The Little Vampire Reviews

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.
January 1, 2000
Even the good moments get sucked into the bizarre black holes of the story.
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
A mite short on laughs, but it's handsomely made, and it's brightened by what is, by the usually lowball standard of kids' movies, an extremely classy cast.
January 1, 2000
A fun and warm children's fantasy.
January 1, 2000
A truly awful film that will frighten little children and drive parents mad with boredom.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
Mildly entertaining but dramatically messy.
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
It's a great little Halloween primer.
January 1, 2000
Offers a few more treats than tricks.
January 1, 2000
The film reminds us that Harry Potter isn't the whole story in children's literature, reversing the usual vampire movie cliches and advancing a few morals about tolerating differences.
January 1, 2000
There are some decent lessons about power and when to use it and when to give it up, about accepting rather than attacking those who are different and about dealing with fear.
January 1, 2000
It's stylish ... modestly surprising and cute. And when's the last time you could say that about a vampire movie?
January 1, 2000
For adults, the film will drag in spots, but it's filled with all those values you hope to instill in your children.
January 1, 2000
A quirky jaunt that will tickle the frontal lobes of any kid who's currently devouring the similar Harry Potter series.
January 1, 2000
Lipnicki and Weeks share a great rapport and imbue all their scenes with playful energy that elevates the material to heights of imagination rarely achieved in films of this genre.
January 1, 2000
Very funny in a way reminiscent of Babe: Pig in the City.
January 1, 2000
The film is cute and entertaining enough for both kids and their parents or adult chaperones, but will probably leave most viewers' memories faster than blood from one's neck at a vampire convention.
