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.

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.

A guaranteed crowd-pleaser for the whole family.

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

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

It's refreshing to see a kids' film taking on such sinister subject matter.

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

It offers imagination and humor and a touch of goose bumps.

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

A nightmare of blandness.

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

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

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

The results are predictable and only mildly entertaining.

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

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.

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