  1. An odd little ghoul too cleaned up to survive, a bloodless vampire movie that's mostly lifeless as well.

    Slight and goofy, this cut-rate attempt to mine "Harry Potterville" is undermined by its ostensible draw: the lead casting of Jonathan Lipnicki.

    A mildly entertaining but dramatically messy kidpic.
  4. Would like to be a Halloween treat, but it's more like a nightmare of blandness.
  5. The movie falters when it gets mean.
  6. Adults may have a hard time swallowing this toothless tale of PG-rated bloodsuckers, but kids may relate better to its lessons.

    Some things just don't translate . . . not with Lipnicki attached, at any rate. Stick with the books.
