Dear Dracula

DVD Release: October 9, 2012
Dear Dracula


Sam is a monster movie buff who lives with his grandmother. Unwilling to wait until Christmas so he can write to Santa, Sam decides to write to Dracula for Halloween instead. Much to his surprise, Dracula personally responds. Sam quickly learns that Dracula isn’t what he used to be – he’s lost his confidence, and he can’t even scare people anymore! Chaos ensues as Sam makes it his mission to help Dracula regain his mojo and learn to scare again.

Dove Review

This is a fun Halloween film that will keep the little one’s attention to the very end. Dracula isn’t scary anymore to the children of the time. Mainly due to the overexposure of more violent characters in today’s movies. In fact, when asked the question “what does Halloween mean to you” he answers “the thrill of the scare”. Sam too has lost his confidence. Together they teach each other and learn together that they are different but that’s OK.

The film features topics such as being different, the powers of friendship and that it is acceptable to be oneself. We are pleased to award this fun filled tale our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. Parents will enjoy the recognizable voices of the cast too.
