In this high-spirited family comedy, a kindly clan of Scottish vampires befriend a California kid who's far from home, a boy who may become The Little Vampire. For Tony Thompson (Jonathan Lipnicki), it's not easy being a nine year old in a new country. The young American from the big city has just moved to a small, remote village in Scotland--and now he's having nightmares about vampires. But they aren't nightmares; the vampires are real; and they're harmless and friendly. Now, young Tony holds the key to the vampires greatest wish: to regain their humanity. Tony and his new friends may succeed if they can stay one step ahead of a relentless vampire hunter in this delightful supernatural family adventure.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie includes dead bodies, stakes through the heart, a child locked in a crypt, a dead mouse, vampire cows, references to the undead, and a generally ghoulish atmosphere. Some kids, especially fans of the book, will love this stuff, but others will be upset by it. In addition, there are characters in peril, schoolyard fights with bullies, and a brief adult fistfight.
