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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the most lively March 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My older child and I found the plot lacking, cinematography dull, and nothing in it that would catch a general audience. I would not watch it again - but my 10 year old liked it well enough

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, but Cute-ish June 11, 2013
Format:DVD
I didn't have high expectations when I watched this, but I thought there were 2 very separate quality levels.

It views like a disney channel pre-teen love story with a slight supernatural twist. All that was acceptable. Not great acting, not a super story, but for what it was, it was cute. I'd give that 3 stars.

My problem was the whole band angle.

Band teacher and son go to 'save' a school from closing by whipping it's band into shape to become a charter school. The band (pardon the pun) sucks. There's mention of a battle of the bands to prove that the teacher can turn the school into a good music program and save the school.

4 kids from the school band decide they're going to make a band for the battle of the bands and play some rock song. I thought this was supposed to be a school band competition? The quad appear to actually have some talent from the 10 seconds we hear of them. They play actual 'band instruments' in band compared to the guitars and piano for the 'battle of the bands'.

Battle of the bands comes around, there's 2 "jazz ensembles" who don't appear to be playing jazz (1 'ensemble' is a kid on a recorder playing not jazz music badly), then our rock quad come out and our 'hero' replaces the drummer.

And I don't know about most schools, but I've only ever seen a drum set used for a school band song once. Jazz band used it all the time, but never regular band. (I've seen string bass used in school band more often than a drum set.)

At the end it shows the actual school band in class improved about 90% from the original noise they made. The band stuff did not fit into the movie at all and probably could've been dropped completely (or modified to have it be a garage band competition vs school band).
