Michael J. Pagan,
The Hansen kids are in a jam. Adam and his best friend Duffy have gotten their hands on some tickets for the Headless Horseman concert, and his sister Chelsea has a date with her dreamy boyfriend Peter. The only problem is they're both grounded. Chelsea and Adam will do whatever it takes to get their mom Lynette out of the house, even if it includes a chance meeting with a very mysterious man. Everything seems to go according to plan until their little brother Taylor realizes that this stranger might be a vampire. Written by
Yes, it's definitely typical Disney fare. However, they managed to make it somewhat interesting and suspenseful without any gore whatsoever. And that's an accomplishment.
The plot was thin, some of the special effects tacky, some of the dialogue was corny as hell.
But, the ending of this movie was worth it. Rather than being evil and monstrous, the vampire was comedic. During one scene, he yells "Give me back my coffin!" and it was hilarious. Another, involving the look on the mother's face during a key moment, was priceless. Wonderful performance by the actor who plays the elder son. He could be another Malcolm in the Middle.
I never would've seen this film if it weren't for my daughter, but I suppose I can say that for most Disney TV movies. Whether or not I would have initially chosen to watch it, I thought it was great and I'd watch it again. Whether or not it's art, it kept me interested the entire time.
