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.

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.

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!

Offers a few more treats than tricks.

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.

It's stylish ... modestly surprising and cute. And when's the last time you could say that about a vampire movie?

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

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.

Very funny in a way reminiscent of Babe: Pig in the City.

A delightful fantasy kids will love, and one that won't make their parents sorry they came along for the ride.
