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

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

Nigel Clarke and Michael Csnyi-Wills' turgid score complements Edel's squatty direction, and Lipnicki overwhelms the other cast members with his nauseating cutesiness.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
Some things just don't translate ... not with Lipnicki attached, at any rate. Stick with the books.

Cute and precocious in those little round specs, [Lipnicki] also grows grating, especially after 94 minutes of delivering the kind of jokes usually found on the bottom of a Dixie Cup.
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
Karey Kirkpatrick and Larry Wilson's script is very saccharine, meanders all over the place, has barely realized characters, and is boring in parts.
January 1, 2000
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.
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 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
The results are predictable and only mildly entertaining.
