Well, I sat down with my 11 year old son to watch the 2012 movie "Vampire Dog". And I must admit that I wasn't really expecting too much from the movie, given its title and synopsis.
But it turned out to be a movie that was actually better than I had anticipated. Sure, I am not saying that this is a stellar movie, but it definitely was watchable and proved entertaining for a family movie. And my son seemed to enjoy it well enough.
The storyline was good and had some elements that were suitable for all ages, so there is something for the entire family here. And it wasn't actually too bad of a storyline that writer Tracy McMenemy had managed to put together. However, the movie did drop down a notch in worth when the dog started talking. That, for me, was just a bit too far out there.
It should be said that the actors and actresses in the movie were definitely carrying the movie well with their individual performances. I wasn't familiar with anyone aside from Norm MacDonald, whom voiced Fang - the vampire dog.
If you are a family that watch movies together, "Vampire Dog" is actually a fun enough movie. One that might actually be suitable for a Halloween movie marathon.
However, director Geoff Anderson's 2012 movie was ultimately one that you will watch once and then probably never again, unless you are a younger member of the family. As such, then "Vampire Dog" just provided me with mediocre entertainment. This means that the movie's rating lands on a five out of ten stars.
