Shortly after moving with his parents to a small town in Scotland, Tony Thompson (Jonathan Lipnicki) meets a young vampire named Rudolph (Rollo Weeks). The pair become best friends and Tony agrees to help Rudolph and his family hunt for the magical amulet which will free them from the curse of vampirism. However, it's not long before their search for the amulet brings them face-to-face with the dreaded Rookery (Jim Carter), a man dedicated to the destruction of vampires and who will also stop at nothing to obtain the amulet for himself.
Fresh from Stuart Little, young Jonathan Lipnicki carries on his pint-sized shoulders his every scene in The Little Vampire as eight-year-old Tony, befriender of vampires. The Scottish setting lends itself nicely to spookiness, too. A continent away from his native California, Tony's having a tough time making new friends when a band of vagabond vampires enters his life through his bedroom window. The encounter seems pure coincidence at first, but then the scary truth surfaces: Tony, though he's not a vampire himself, has "sympathy for our kind", as the dad of the bat-linked brood puts it. Visions of vampire happenings from generations past invade the kid's consciousness, and they hold the key to the clan's current gypsy-like predicament. Through his clairvoyance and, by extension, the discovery of a long-lost amulet, the mostly benevolent bloodsuckers are able to reclaim their rightful status as proper cave-dwellers in their homeland. Clueless-parent predicaments abound--Tony's mum and dad smirk at their son's vampire-obsessed imagination until the cape-draped heads of the clan drop by for a visit--and viewers of around Tony's age will find the gang's adventures eluding a bumbling vampire hunter genuinely chuckle worthy. --Tammy La Gorce --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

this is one of those films that will never grow old and is suitable for everyone, it's great.
The story, of a little boy, who befriends a vampire family who want to become mortal, who are the vampire equivalent of veggies, because they only drink cows blood - interesting choice in this time of BSE and Foot and Mouth - plays shmelessly on every cliche this side of Transyvania, to the clothes and the exoticness of a vampire, and those AWFUL, but in a good way, accents to the dippyness of the mortal boys' mother when Richard E Grant does that Hugh Grant thing, all sinister charm, and the feline slinkiness of Alice Krige, to that guy who's married on to Imelda Staunton's pantomime turn as the Hopelss Vampire hunter - could you just see him in Buffy? - it's really funny, and had my 5 year old, (and his mother!) falling off our seats in hysterics.
Loved those vampire cowpats.
All I needed was David Boreanaz coming round with ice cream and life would have been perfect.
Or should that be unlife?
The cows make the movie as they mostly hang around in the barn and at a static point deposit nitrogenous waste on the windscreen of the bad guy's vehicle; then they snicker at the prospects.
To distract those older nippers watching this film there is Alice Krige. You can feel the electricity as she controls them and mesmerizes the viewer.
Lots of action with unexpected ending.
Much of the humour is slapstick, but still not totally overdone. There is also quite an interesting storyline, and special effects are good. It was quite an entertaining feature.
One point really did grate on me though, and that was the casting of Tony. No doubt he was chosen on cuteness, but he seemed to me to act an look several years younger than all of the other children - supposedly his age - in the story. He also tended to smile a great deal, which again was cute but sometimes just did not seem to fit the events that were happening in the story. This, to me, made the movie more appropriate for younger children and unlikely to appeal to older children and young adults. However it is a very enjoyable one for younger children and a great timewaster for all.
