Michael (2017)

This ultra-low-budget comedy from Germany is not a good film – and it is not funny. Things that worked reasonably well in the short film Fang, on which Michael is based, completely stop working in this feature-length film. You are not missing anything if you are not watching this. […]

The Little Vampire (2018)

This 2018 animated film is based on a well-established franchise, and yet it came and went without anyone really taking notice. The reception was cool, the film barely made its money back at the box office, and to this day the film has no entry in either the English nor the German Wikipedia.

Night of the Vampire Hunter (2000)

A German indie film produced with no budget, using an amateur cast. And yet it does not look awful (although often lacking in light), has interesting practical effects, and its story keeps you interested throughout. […]

Der Kleine Vampir – Neue Abenteuer (1993)

Although it is a sequel (of sorts) to the 1986 TV-series The Little Vampire, this German-language production is not available in other languages. Which is just as well, because it is – unfortunately – not really good. […]
