Remember Jonathan Lipnicki? Sure you do. He was the little, spiky-haired blonde kid that was featured in pretty much every heartwarming movie throughout the nineties. He’s also certainly transitioned into manhood well, but that’s a different discussion entirely. Before he buffed out Jonathan starred in “The Little Vampire” as Tony Thompson, a strange, lonely little boy who has to make do with moving to Scotland. The transition doesn’t go all too bad, especially since Tony ends up befriending some of the baddest kids around: vampires.

While the whole humans-befriending-vampires trope has gotten tired, “The Little Vampire” revamps it with fresh, giddy innocence. Weird kids finding each other and forming friendships is always a beautiful thing; it also couldn’t hurt when said friendship involves one member showing off his supernatural powers (with a rad fashion sense to boot).

“The Witches” was partly produced by Jim Henson Productions, so you already know it’s a quality film. Terrifying, but quality. The movie’s all about a little boy named Luke (Jasen Fisher) whose been consistently warned about witches since birth. Then he gets stuck on a cruise with a full coven of them, led by the terrifying Grand Witch (Angelica Huston) who really, really doesn’t like children. So much so, in fact, she wants to turn them all into mice. Luckily that fails, but still, that’s a horrifying concept even as an adult.

The greatest appeal in children’s movies of any genre is the idea that kids can solve problems adults fail to acknowledge. With “The Witches” in particular, Luke is stuck in a pickle in which all the adults are absolutely clueless to the nefarious goings-on. But when the adults are in hot water, it’s the kids that get them out of it. And who didn’t want to prove grownups wrong when they were a kid?
