Consensus: The Little Vampire can't seem to find the right pitch, with its muddled, jumpy script and badly executed mix of cuteness and fright.

Vampire cows provide comic relief and many of the scares in this respectfully dark yet optimistic story about a lonely child who befriends a vampire.

For adults, the film will drag in spots, but it's filled with all those values you hope to instill in your children.

Much of the film's success is down to the costume design, the novel SFX and the mildly foreboding atmosphere of the mist enshrouded Scottish countryside.

It's an occupational hazard that you actually have to try to think about movies like this, which just get weirder and weirder the more you consider them.
