When Tony has a bloody nose his mom has put tissues in it to stop the bleeding. She pulls out one side and says still bleeding so she gets more tissue, while she is rolling it up there is no tissue in that one side of his nose. Then after she is done rolling it up the tissue is back in his nose without her putting it there, then she pulls it out again and replaces it with fresh tissue. See more »

Comedy, Drama, Exquisite Costumes, Funny
15 October 2001 | by (Ohio, USA) – See 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....
