VAMPIRES DON
Vampires Don't Dance is a modern, silent black and white film that is full of suspense! I like the close-up shots and the simplicity of the set. Because it is silent, you can imagine the sounds and dialogue. The filmmaker is five years old.

This is the story of a little vampire who is searching for dinner. Along the way he has to fight off an evil which who is wearing a scary mask.

The storyline is very original and allows you to use your imagination of what is being said or thought. The cinematography is quite wonderful. The black and white film really suits the topic. The close-ups of the vampire's face, feet and cloak swishing around brings forward the beauty of the actor's movements. The black cloak and the mask for the evil character help define them. The entire film is shot in a small space with large looming fence and a central wooden sculpture that the vampire uses to lie down on. The small space makes the characters feel even larger and closer to the viewer. There are crackling sounds on the recording record, which makes it seem authentic and when the music stopped, only the crackling remains. It feels almost like the live music that played during old silent movies. Smoke is used just before the confrontation between the vampire and the evil masked character which creates a little suspense. The vampire is played by Arthur Frick, who is also the film's writer and director. My favorite part of the film is that it is written by a five-year-old boy with an amazing imagination. I wish that more five-year-olds would make their own movies.

The moral of the film is that good vampires who want to save the world can triumph over evil witches.

I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. This film offers a great opportunity to watch a silent black and white movie, which is uncommon these days. Reviewed by Nyara A., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
