Tony Thompson has just moved from sunny California to a spooky old castle in Scotland, and he's miserable. The weather is damp, he has no one to play with, and he keeps having nightmares about vampires. Then, amazingly, his dreams become reality when he meets Rudolph. Sure, Rudolph is a little pale, but that's because even though he looks nine, he's really hundreds of years old -- and a vampire!

Soon Rudolph has Tony flying through the starry skies, creeping through graveyards, and bouncing on top of a blimp. But the fun doesn't last long. A vampire hunter named Rookery is on Rudolph's trail -- out to get Rudolph's whole family. Even worse, Rookery wants to capture the Stone of Attamon, a magic jewel that has the power to turn vampires back into humans. The chase is on, and the boys are sinking their teeth into the adventure of a lifetime!

The Little Vampire is excellently acted and great to look at. Stuart Little's Jonathan Lipnicki carries, on his pint-sized shoulders, his every scene as 8-year-old Tony, befriender of vampires, and the Scottish setting lends itself nicely to spookiness. But where this video earns most points is in the plot department. A continent away from his native California, Tony's having a tough time making new friends when a band of vagabond vampires enters his life through his bedroom window. The encounter seems pure coincidence at first, but then the scary truth surfaces: Tony, though he's not a vampire himself, has "sympathy for our kind," as the dad of the bat-linked brood puts it. Visions of vampire happenings from generations past invade the third-grader's consciousness, and they hold the key to the clan's current gypsy-like predicament. Through his clairvoyance and, by extension, the discovery of a long-lost amulet, the mostly benevolent bloodsuckers are able to reclaim their rightful status as proper cave dwellers in their homeland. Clueless-parent predicaments abound and are cleverer than most--Tony's mom and dad smirk at their son's vampire-obsessed imagination until the cape-draped heads of the clan drop by for a visit--and the gang's adventures eluding a bumbling vampire hunter are genuinely chuckleworthy. At-home Twizzler munchers ages 8 and older won't soon tire of this charmer of a Transylvanian transplant. --Tammy La Gorce
