Comedy, Drama, Exquisite Costumes, Funny
15 October 2001 | by BHorrorWriterSee all my reviews

Just a few words that come to mind when describing The Little Vampire.

This film is beautifully shot and at times looks like a Tim Burton film with the Blue filter over the screen. The costumes: Simply exquisite....they looked excellent.....nice Halloween costumes?!?!?!

Rollo Weeks, in his break through film Debut, gives and exception performance as Rudolph, the Little Vampire...He is a clever, young boy with excellent acting skills.

Lipnicki, of course is too cute, and shines and Tony the young boy with a heart for Vampires.

The Scenery in this film actually steals the show...Beautiful landscapes, rolling hills, lush greens.....breath-taking...

As an adult, I found this film funny, dramatic, and a good time for the whole family....

8 out of 10
