  • Rating: PG
Uli Edel's family friendly vampire movie The Little Vampire comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable in every way to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include interactive games, monster themed jokes, and recipes for monster themed snacks. Those with a DVD-ROM drive can access the film's website, a screensaver, and can jump from the script to that point in the film. No matter what one thinks of the film, this is a strong release from New Line that contains extras to entertain every member of the family.

    The Little Vampire
    Nine-year-old Tony (Jerry Maguire's Jonathan Lipnicki) has just moved with his parents (Tommy Hinkley and Pamela Gidley) to a small town in the Scottish Highlands, where his father is overseeing the building of a golf course for old squire Lord McAshton (John Wood). Tony is picked on by his new classmates and starts dreaming about vampires at night, until one fine evening his dreams seem to summon Rudolph (Rollo Weeks), an aristocratic, wee vampire. Rudolph is among the vegetarian variety of vampires, but tells Tony that his diet has weakened his flying powers. After Tony guides Rudolph to some unsuspecting cows, on whose blood his new friend feasts, a friendship is born. Rudolph introduces Tony to his father (Richard E. Grant), mother (Alice Krige), and siblings, all of whom have been in hiding for three centuries as they wait for a comet to pass by that will make them human if they possess a magic amulet. Rudolph's dad, however, is missing part of the amulet, which turns out to have been stolen by Rudolph's uncle centuries ago and is now in the possession of none other than Lord McAshton. To further complicate matters, a vampire hunter (Jim Carter) is skulking around and causing no end of trouble. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

      perfect family movie


      The movie might seem a little cheesy for adults but it is a funny comedy for all ages. I saw this movie several years ago while I was in high school and loved it. I'm 22 now and still think the movie is funny. It's a great buy and getting it online is even better now that you really can't find it in most stores.
