Over here. -[screams] MALE SPEAKER (OFFSCREEN): Vlad. Vlad. -[screams] -Freak. -On the contrary, Mistress Ingrid. Like all powerful vampires, Master Vlad has started sleeping during the day. -Excellent. Let's go down to the crypt and I'll tuck you into your coffin. Renfield, burn his bed. -Happily. -I am not speaking in a coffin all day. I'm going to school. -Sweet dreams. -Jonno, the porridge! -Sorry, Dad. It's from Mom. We've been writing, and she wants to see me. -Oh, I see. -You haven't told her about the slaying, have you? -No. What's wrong telling her the truth? -She's a psychotherapist. She thinks that vampires only exist in my mind. -But we can prove they're real! People see only what they want to see. Don't make the same mistake as me. -They're coming. -Who's coming? [door bell] -I'm coming! Hello, Vlad. Hurry up, you lot! Are all right? You look tired. -Go to bed early. That's my advice. Bye, love. -Yeah, I know. I look tired. Something weird is happening. I keep falling asleep and having this dream about you. We're in a forest, and-- -Freak. [screech] -For centuries, oak has been the traditional choice of wood when building a coffin. -Isn't that right, Vlad? [growl] Vlad! -Vampire! -Vlad, be quiet! Come on, let's go. -What is wrong with him? -He's a creature of the undead. Everything's wrong with him. [bell ringing] -Everybody was a vampire. -Cool. I love it when I have that dream. -It was more like a nightmare. I'm scared, Robin. I can't fall asleep again. -It's double maths after lunch. You've got no chance. -You'll just have to keep pinching me. -What are friends for? -Vlad? Vlad, wake up. Vlad, wake up. Vlad! Vlad, wake up! -They're coming. -Who's coming? -You must learn to master your vampire powers to survive. -Powers? What do you mean, survive? -Listen. [footsteps] -Slayers. -They are fast. But the wolf is faster. -Yeah? Well, I'm not a wolf. -It sleeps within you. -I can't shapeshift. I'm not even a proper vampire yet. -That's not what they think. -What do I do? -A clever fish swims with the tide. Run! -You! [laughing] I thought I was being chased by slayers. This is just a dream. You're not gonna hurt me. There goes that theory. [groaning] [snarling] [growling] [barking] -Double freak. [bell ringing] -What on Earth's going on? Come on, there's nothing to see here. -You were supposed to stop me falling asleep. -I tried pinching you, but you wouldn't wake up. Maybe next time I should slap you in the face. -Robin, I am in big trouble. -That was nothing to do with me. -Your mom just tried to slay me. -Ingrid. -Shh. -Sorry. Ingrid, do you ever have weird dreams? -Only a recurring one where an annoying geek of a brother keeps asking me stupid questions. -I'm serious. In my dream, I was chased by slayers, and they did this. -Boys? My lunch. You're lying. You don't get to go to the dream world until you're 16. -What dream world? -The place vampires go when they sleep, bat brain. If you're slain there, you die for real. -That's not good news. -Ugh, please. As if you'd get to go there before me. Hey. Vlad. -[crying] The slayers are coming. Save me, Vlad! Save me! -Shh. -Slayers! -Follow me. Keep your head down. -If I die, who's gonna carry on my charity work and captain the chess club? -I don't know who's freaking me out more, you or the Branaghs. Come on. -[screaming] -[snarling] -Robin Branagh, you do not wake someone up by slapping them in the face. -But Miss, he told me to. -Ingrid, you're OK! -Get up, Sleeping Beauty. You're making the rest of us look bad. Back off, slayers. He doesn't need your kind of help. -What happened to your hand? -He's feasting on himself. -Oh, that is disgusting. -I, uh, it's just a papercut. -Go wash the blood off. Then come to my office. Let's see if we can patch you up with a first aid kit, eh? I'm very concerned about Vlad's behavior. -Yes. He should be punished severely. -No, I mean I'm worried about him. He's been acting very strangely. -Maybe there's trouble at home. Why don't you invite his father in for a chat? -Good idea. And I'll call in a student counselor, too. -Dad, you're a genius. -Don't get me wrong. I like being a vampire mentor. I just think that I should be in black, too. -Your family trying to slay me, and all you can think about is clothes? Ow. -So what was it like shapeshifting into a wolf? -Well, I scared the slayers, and I felt good, which worries me. -And having fur and a tail doesn't? -What if there's an evil vampire in my blood after all? -Vlad, you still sleep with a teddy bear. Dream on. Come on. Let's get you a plaster. And a lollipop for being brave. -So when the Count arrives, what's he going to do? -Try and get inside quickly to avoid exposure to sunlight. -And what are we going to do? -Stop him. -And let Mother Nature do the rest. -Here he comes. -Get ready. -Hello, Eric. Hello, Jonno. -Mom! -Mina! -Wow, gosh, you've got tall. -Mina, what are you doing here? -Oh, wow, it's nice to see you, too. -No, I mean-- I didn't mean-- -I've, um, started working as a counselor for schools in this area, so I thought it would be a good chance to see both of you. -Are you here to see a boy called Vlad? -Eric, you know I can't tell you that. Oh, um, I'm late. Can we talk later? -Let's hope so. -Don't worry. This is perfect. -Jonno, we're letting her walk into a room full of vampires. That's not what I call perfect. -All we have to do is grab the Count on the way out and he'll turn to dust before her very eyes. -Finally proving to her that vampires are real. You're the genius, son. -Run along. Mr. Count. Pleased to meet you. -The pleasure is all mine. -[giggling] -Good afternoon. I'm Mina Van Helsing, student counselor. Hello. -I believe I know your husband, Mrs. Van Helsing. We're great friends. -Please don't kiss my hand. -He never mentioned he had such a beautiful wife. -I think we're here to talk about Vlad, not me. Shall we go in? Ahem. -Oh, yes. He's in my office. -He's out cold. -It's no use. Vampires can't cross running water, remember? -But that makes no sense. -Hey, I don't make the rules. -Ow. -Our greatest glory is in rising every time we fall. You have to get up and fight. -Help me. -We need to get this boy straight to hospital. -Oh, come on. He's totally faking. -Now. -They're coming. -Let's grab the Count and give him a sun tan he won't forget. -OK, watch his head. I'm, uh, gonna get to the hospital. I'll-- I'll call you later. -Follow that hearse! -We should go too. -I'll look after him, Miss. -Good idea. Mr. Van Helsing! Have you got room for two more? -You can do this, Vlad. You know you can.
