Review

A low budget, pre-teen Disney TV movie; a weak plot, weaker cast, and nothing new to say, except the 'spoon test' - an infallible way of diagnosing vampirism.

This movie is very slow, predictable and unexciting; being Disney fayre, we don't even get to stake the Bad Guy, though Buffy had shown tasteful dustings for three seasons when this came out.

The cast really is pretty dire, Disney selecting on the basis of who would be able to spin the 'family values' tosh without visible nausea.

This movie constantly reminded me of of the much funnier, much better acted and slicker Dracula - The Series, which preceded this lame effort by ten years.

And if the kids want a good vampire movie with heart but no smarm overdose, go for The Little Vampire.
