Back when Disney Channel’s Monstober Halloween occasion was called Hauntoberfest, I’d stay up past my bedtime to see red-eyed vampire cows reevaluate their revenge onto a vampire vampire hunter, and I loved every moment of it. If you have never noticed 2000’s The Little Vampire, consider it as a sudden mashup involving Under Wraps and The Addams Family, using a few bloodthirsty cows thrown for good measure. Having nothing better to do than blend a blood-red cocktail and soak up all of the nostalgic Halloween articles my mind can remember, I rewatched this film for the very first time because it came out 20 decades past, and it is a freakin’ riot.
The film follows Tony Thompson (Jonathan Lipnicki), a vampire-obsessed 9-year-old who only moved to Scotland with his parents and so is getting some difficulty matching in. Following an IRL vampire kid named Rudolph errors Tony for among his own type during a late night fly round the Thompson home, both become best buddies. Subsequently, Tony combines Rudolph on his family’s quest to regain a long lost magic amulet which may be employed to flip witches back into individuals.
Without doubt, Tony awakens the celebration shop vampire cape across his throat and allows Rudolph expose him into the wonders of flying rural Scotland and dangling outside at overgrown cemeteries. Tony does his role leading Rudolph and his household into a barn full of cattle to feed , and that, yes, ends in a herd of vampire cattle which could hang from the ceiling with their hooves. Tony finds all this pretty flippin’ cool, before Rookery, the vampire hunter, even strives to snare him into a sarcophagus and prevent the vampires out of regaining their amulet. From begin to finish, this film is a crazy ride and caused me to laugh at odd times, and it is certainly worth a visit. Only ask 2000 me, that dressed like a vampire for Halloween three years in a row, or relive the film vicariously through to me by reading all of the ideas that I had while rewatching it, beforehand.
