Synopsis

“Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire,” a Disney Channel original movie, premieres Friday, 10/13/00 at 7:00PM ET/PT. The family adventure concerns a 13-year-old who looks for a date for his divorced Mom via the Web personals. Trouble is, young Adam Hansen (Matthew O’Leary) actually contacts a bloodsucking cybersuitor for an evening on the town with good old Mom. When he and sis (Laura Vandrvoort) discover that debonair Dimitri Dentatos (Charles Shaughnessy) is really a bat-flying, fang-flashing vampire, they set out to rescue their mother.

Dove Review

What disappointed me was the exclusion of a cross in any scene. It’s tradition that Dracula and his minions in the movies are deathly afraid of the sign of the cross. When you see “children of the night” cowering from just looking at the cross, it sends out a pretty strong message – Christ defeats evil. It’s strong symbolism and the filmmakers have been extra careful to exclude it. Take away the cross, and what you have is humanism – man alone can defeat evil.
