I guess I need to be wary of movies that use the word "dog" in their titles, it just might represent truth in advertising! What do you think about when you hear "Vampire Dog?" Right away, I conjured dozens of wacky sight gags, silly puns, and ridiculous spoofs. Just the notion of this dog having vampiric tendencies (even comical ones) opens up a myriad of mental images and potentially humorous situations. The problem with "Vampire Dog" is that its screenplay is so lazy, it never makes a convincing argument that Fang (the doggie in question, voiced by Norm MacDonald) is supernatural or even special. It cracks wise, to be sure, but is never particularly funny. What makes it a vampire exactly? Apparently it's very old, comes from Transylvania, moves like lightning, and consumes red jelly (this is actually Jello, but I guess they couldn't afford brand royalties). That's the back story of Fang in a nutshell.

Fang is taken in by an awkward youth (Collin MacKechnie). The primary message of the movie is that it's okay to be yourself. While that's always a welcome inspiration, a little cleverness in the telling would have been greatly appreciated. In addition to helping MacKechnie fit in at school (and score his first girlfriend), the plot also has a couple of evil scientists pursuing the canine. These two bumble along in slapstick scenarios to get close to Fang in order to develop an anti-aging technology. At best, it's mildly amusing. At worst, it's the sloppiest kind of filmmaking. At times, whole scenes seem to be missing as the action isn't tied together in any tangible way. One example: the bad guys are shown approaching Fang's house one evening. The scene then cuts away, and never returns to this action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Friendly Flick is Cute for Children January 13, 2013
Format:DVD
Vampire Dog is a family friendly film about a twelve year old boy and his new dog named Fang that he has been bequeathed to care for. As you can probably guess from the title the dog turns out to be no ordinary dog and has some very peculiar powers, habits and phobias because of the oddities of being a 600-year-old canine from Transylvania.

I don't want to ruin the whole story for you so I am going to be a bit vague at the plot. I did notice some inconsistencies in the script and film, but still I thought that the movie was cute and great for younger kids especially. My kids seemed to enjoy how the story unfolded and turned out. This is live action with CG animation. This wholesome "tail" about friendship, teamwork and courage is wonderful for a Halloween flick.

1.0 out of 5 stars WISH THEY GAVE A ZERO-STAR OPTION July 5, 2014
Format:DVD
This is a really, really awful movie with absolutely no redeeming qualities. It has the same basic plot as "Home Alone," a beautifully-done comedy about a brave child thwarting bad guys. But "Vampire Dog" is such a spectacularly incompetent film, I can't recommend it for humans of any age. If I had three-year-olds, I'd be embarrassed for them to see this mess. Poorly acted, awfully written, badly directed, this movie has every element to make it deserving to never be seen by anyone.

One of the most embarrassing aspects of the story, which hinges on a dog who thinks he needs cherry Jello to stay alive, is that they can't say the word "Jello" for trademark infringement reasons. So every time Jello is mentioned, which is a lot, they say "jelly" instead.

This movie is NOT for families - unless you have or want a family of idiots. I am so, so sorry I wasted time watching this trash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy movie, the kids can't watch enough! May 15, 2014
By aw3549
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My kids absolutely love this movie. They watch it over and over. We first saw it on Netflicks and they enjoyed watching it so much we bought it so they could watch it in the car. It's really a cute movie and who doesn't love talking vampire dogs that eat red jello. It's a sweet kids movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie! August 24, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have an 8-year-old who just loves this movie. It's entertaining and funny in an age-appropriate way. No blood or violence. The "vampire" dog needs cherry jelly to survive! Cute.
