      Adam Nayman Globe and Mail [It] ends up feeling drab as well as looking it. Rated: 2/4 Jul 26, 2013 Full Review Bruce DeMara Toronto Star Schultz allows the tension to build slowly and for Rufus's secret history to be revealed in increments. There's also some great interplay between the actors ... Rated: 3/4 Jul 26, 2013 Full Review Chris Knight National Post Rufus is well made as far as it goes, but it's hard to enjoy a story when you keep wondering when the Volturi are going to show up. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 3, 2015 Full Review Norman Wilner NOW Toronto I don't know what sort of movie Rufus was intended to be when it was shot, but I can't imagine it was anything like what's being dumped into theatres this week. Rated: 1/5 Mar 3, 2015 Full Review Alexander Lowe We Got This Covered Rory J. Saper's performance as Rufus makes for a compelling story about the inner-turmoil of a vampire. Unfortunately, just about everything else in the movie knocks it back down to mediocrity. Rated: 5/10 Jul 26, 2013 Full Review Jay Stone Canada.com Writer/director Dave Schultz stretches out this somewhat languorous - not to say somnambulant - material to almost two hours by adding a villain. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 25, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      wewites fun kids and teen movie! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Audience Member O que esperar de um filme em que o cachorro se transforma em menino então é até que bem fofinho para o que se propõe, engraçadinho, bonitinho e assistível.... Bora para o dois… Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Good soundtrack! I might be the only person alive who's desperately enamored with this movie. Basically theres a bunch of emotionally fucked up people that help each other out, and one is a quirky (somehow young) vampire. I think the main reason I'm enamored with this film is that most vampires are omniscient and omnipresent gods with no self awareness. It seems Rufus's brain is about as mature as his body and hes the first to admit he doesn't have any answers. Anyways, this movie is for teens. Why else would he be getting naked the first time he meets a girl, but hormones. Still manages to feel innocent. He also finds genuine love and support, an actual family(some might hate how ready made they are, but I felt like they had a rufus sized hole in their hearts, separate from the one left by their son. I think he fit in without actually trying to take the place of a kid they lost) The acting is good all round and though the villain and plot have happened before it was still worth a watch. And DAMNIT, how many times have you cheered for the vampire and he actually one? I left this movie feeling hopeful. I enjoyed it very much. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review kerry w Rating: 6/10. 68/100. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet little story about a sad vampire who just wants to be loved with a fantastic soundtrack. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't understand why this film is so poorly rated. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It speaks the truth about the ills of the criminal justice system. It is also entertaining at the same time. Perhaps people think that the views expressed in the film are hyperbole. They are not.
