Okay, sure, he lives in an awesome haunted house where he has crazy adventures with a couple of fun-loving monsters, but still: he’s bored now! Even his daily film club no longer entices him. He dreams of meeting new friends and going to school, but strangely enough, his parents keep telling him that the outside world is far too dangerous for him. As obedient as a 300-year-old child can be, Little Vampire decides to sneak off with Fantomate, his trusty bulldog. Outside he meets young Michel, with whom he immediately strikes up a friendship. But his little escapade will also attract the attention of the family’s eternal long-toothed enemy, the terrifying Gibbous…
