Little Vampire, The (2000) - Synopsis

Little Vampire, The (2000)

It is not easy being a 9-year-old in a new country. TONY (Jonathan Lipnicki) has just moved with his parents DOTTIE (Pamela Gidley) and BOB THOMPSON (Tommy Hinkley) from a big bustling city in America to a small village in a remote corner of Scotland.

Every night, in his new home, Tony has nightmares about vampires, and he has no idea why. He soon becomes so absorbed by them that he starts studying every book he can find on the subject. His classmates tease him about his vampire obsession, especially the cruel local kids, NIGEL (Iain De Caestecker) and FLINT (Scott Fletcher), grandsons of local squire, and Bob's employer, LORD McASHTON (John Wood). The teacher at his new school is so concerned he tells Tony's Mum about how worried he is; not a good start for the new kid in town.

One evening, while in his room, practising basic vampire moves, Tony gets a visit from a large bat, which transforms before his eyes into a 9-year-old vampire boy, RUDOLPH (Rollo Weeks), who happens to be extremely hungry.
