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.

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.

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.

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).
