It's the little fangs in life
The Little Vampire
Review by Ross Anthony

The B+ rating is for the kids (5 to 10) -- Older folks need much more blood and violence. Actually, when I was seven, I would have loved this film.

Now that I'm a few years older than that, I couldn't help seeing all the holes (and I'm not talking about the ones in mortals' necks). This cute little film plays like it was edited with a rusty soup can lid. Probably some adult explanations were cut to keep the film kid-friendly.

Fun and not too scary (except for the part where that Stuart Little kid gets trapped in a tomb). Still, it's a good film to get your little monsters into the Halloween mood.

A cute human kid befriends a cute vamp kid and together they bat-tle to break the curse of the vamps.
