The movie is a collaboration of the 1st and 2nd books, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was excited for the premiere of this for weeks prior to and went very far out of my way to go see it opening weekend. Wasn't a big box office hit b/c it was NOT well publicized AT ALL! But it is a good movie. If you are familiar w/ the series, then you'll probably be able to tell right away it's not very true to the books. It keeps the same basic plot parts, but puts them all together in a different order, which can be frustrating. The casting, however, is very good, and the only underdeveloped character is Evra Von, but Darren & Steve are PERFECTLY cast! I found this movie very entertaining and I DO plan on buying it when it's available on dvd (which is now, I think). I REALLY RECOMMEND IT for entertainment purposes, but I do encourage the reading of the books, too, they're a completely different story. :)

Darren Shan's imagination is beyond wild and that is greatly illustrated in this funny, exciting movie. Every personality from the book is expressed in the film and the creative, gruesome entertainment keeps you laughing from beginning to end. Also, you'll watch all the myths in vampire tales from mind tricks to transforming into bats be destroyed as the twisted story of a vampire master and his new assistant unfolds. A great movie for Halloween!!

A really great movie. A definite must see for fans of the Cirque du Freak books as well as those who aren't.

I watched The Vampire's Assistant with no real expectations, just hoping that it might be entertaining, and found myself surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The entire film feels a little over-the-top, as though in addition to featuring side show freaks, it is in itself a flashy freak of a performer. The colors are jewel-bright, the "normal" characters more caricatures than real people, and almost every scene has a stagy, wrought-with-meaning feel to it. Yet the film never loses its sense of lightness, and it introduces so many interesting people that I couldn't help wanting to know more about them. I never thought I'd be interested in reading the Cirque du Freak books, but I might just pick one up now.

plot was also very different as of following the original story. I read the entire series and loved it but when you compare it to the movie is is definetly different. So I don't know whether fans of the book would be so pleased. (But I did like it.) It was a very funny movie though, which I'm not quite sure if the people who haven't yet watched it are looking for comedy. The books are definetly far from a comedy though. But, that is one exellent thing, the movie has a perfect blend or twist to it. It is funny, it has action scenes, and even a little bit of romance, horror, and emotion. Also, it is something to keep talking about because, the ending somewhat keeps you going. It doesn't insist that it will be continued, but the chances are that it will be a series of four movies, much like the Twilight Saga. Three books in each movie. And um..... over all I rate it **** because over all I did enjoy it and think many others may to. *These are all my own personal opinions. I hope none are offended if they think differently*

I love this movie and although it differs greatly from the books. It is impossible to make a movie identical to a boys' diary. But even though it deviates from the original concept it is still my all time favorite movie. I also recommend that you read the books before you see the movie. It is easier to understand dispite the alterations.
