Date: 4 September 2000
Summary: A fantastic film with great costumes and fab special
The little vampire is a thrilling story as a book and it makes a
magical film. The script was full of witty jokes if you approached it
with the right attitude. My name is Anna Popplewell and I appeared
in the film as 'Anna' so it is no wonder I rate it well. My brother and
sister (5) and (9) both loved it and so did an audience full of children
at the test screening. It is true that children above 12 may find it a
little babyish. There is magic the whole way through the film, not
only as the friendship is formed, but also when it is tested. Any child
who didn't enjoy this film should watch a little more closely.
I've also found a very high quality movie trailer for you. Check it outMake sure to check out the new movie section.
