Hey, not all movies I watch are masterpieces, you know?

The Little Vampire is one of my favorite kids movies. When this movie came out, I was 9 years old, and even today when I watched it at 23 years old, I absolutely love this movie. It’s just so cute!

The Little Vampire is about a little American boy named Tony whose family moved to Scotland for his father’s work.  He doesn’t fit in well at school, he has nightmares about vampires, and he doesn’t have any friends. Until he meets a vampire boy he had been dreaming about and realizes that all his dreams were real things! The movie follows his and his friend Rudolph’s adventures in trying to save the vampires from the vampire hunter and find an amulet to make it so that the vampires can become humans.

It is what it is. And that’s an absolutely adorable kids movie that touches on the true meanings of friendship and is good family fun for everybody, especially around Halloween. (Also, bonus! One of the bullies is a baby Iain de Caestecker, who plays Fitz on Agents of SHIELD, and seeing his tiny baby face is absolutely ADORABLE!)

My Rating: 7/10
