The Haunting Hour was an R L Stine vehicle that ran for 4 seasons and was marked by having perhaps a slightly darker hue than vehicles such as Goosebumps. Grampires was actually two episodes from season 3, with the story continuing from one episode to the other.
As per the normal model of these types of show the main protagonists are kids – in this case a brother, Mike (Mitchell Kummen), and his sister, Cristen (Chanelle Peloso). She is old enough to drive and he is the kid brother.

This was fun and Christopher Lloyd was, as always, a joy to watch. More could have been made of the traditional vampiric OCD and bingo – but that is a hindsight thing and, to be fair, the target audience probably wouldn’t have got that nuance. 6.5 out of 10.
