Rated R
Running time: 109 mins

As it turns out, the cute little ballerina is (not really a spoiler) a bloodthirsty vampire who begins hunting them down. They also run into a few problems escaping. And living. And keeping their heads on.
As I mentioned: Oopsies!

I actually enjoyed this for the most part, although it suffered from some cardboard characters doing exactly what you’d expect. And although it did get tense, the payoff wasn’t usually that great. Alisha Weir,as the little horror, was quite good, as were most of the cast. But the writers tried too hard to be too clever too many times; they just ended up being predictable.

I’ll recommend this one, but it might not be to everyone’s…taste. Definitely not for kids. No credits after the credits roll, so you can just pirouette on out.

Flytrap rating: 7/10
