Tony Thompson (Jonathan Lipnicki) is a nine-year-old boy who has just moved to Scotland with his family. Tony is having trouble making friends at his new school, and he has strange dreams about vampires every night. One night a bat flies into Tony's room - a bat that then turns into Rudolph (Rollo Weeks), a young vampire boy fleeing from an obsessed vampire hunter (Jim Carter). Rudolph explains that the vampires don't want to hurt humans and only drink the blood of cows. Tony and Rudolph become friends, and Tony meets Rudolph's family. But Rookery, the vampire hunter, is chasing the vampires, trying to keep Rudolph's family from finding a missing magic stone that has the power to turn the vampires back into ordinary humans.
It's a childrens movie. So don't expect any (human) bloodshed, but a nice and warmhearted
film about vampires and friendship instead. It's pretty good amusement in a different way, compared to your usual choice - even
when they have flying vampire-cows (!!) near the end of the movie.
