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.

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.

Karey Kirkpatrick and Larry Wilson's script is very saccharine, meanders all over the place, has barely realized characters, and is boring in parts.

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.

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.

t's hard to know quite how enthusiastic to be about a family film that's occasionally pitched at the wrong crowd, but at least isn't stupid or actively offensive most of the time.

There's a fair amount of material in The Little Vampire that younger kids might find quite disturbing.

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

Many kids will like this film, but that is really not all that surprising. I myself liked Gilligan's Island many years ago.

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

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

A nightmare of blandness.

The movie has a terminal case of the cutes.

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

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.

An odd little ghoul too cleaned up to survive, a bloodless vampire movie that's mostly lifeless as well.
