Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire is a 2000 Disney Channel Original Movie.


The Hansen children are in a jam. Adam (Matt O'Leary) and his best friend Duffy (Jake Epstein) have some tickets for the Headless Horseman concert, and his sister Chelsea (Laura Vandervoort) has a date with her dreamy boyfriend Peter. The only problem is, they are both grounded: Adam as punishment because he did not do his homework, instead making up a story using an article from the magazine The Weekly Secret, and Chelsea because she called Adam a dweeb, which their divorced mother, Lynette (Caroline Rhea), happened to hear. Chelsea and Adam will do whatever it takes to get their mother out of the house, even if it includes a chance meeting with a very mysterious man.

Everything seems to go according to plan, until their little brother Taylor (Myles Jeffrey) realizes that this stranger might be a vampire.

His brother and sister do not believe Taylor, so he calls Malachi Van Helsing (Robert Carradine), the vampire hunter. The night that their mother goes out with Dimitri (Charles Shaughnessy), the vampire, Taylor follows them. Not wanting their mother to come home, they follow Taylor and find him outside the restaurant that Lynette and Dimitri are at. Adam and Taylor make the vampire do the spoon test (a fake test made up by Adam to get Taylor to stop calling Dimitri a vampire). Afterwards, much to his horror, Adam realizes that Taylor's hunch about Dimitri was right when he looks in the mirror and discovers that Dimitri doesn't have a reflection.

So, along with Chelsea, Adam sets out to stop Dimitri, who puts their mother in a trance and takes her to his mansion. Meanwhile, Malachi Van Helsing arrives and begins to hunt down Dimitri, only to discover that he was being followed by Taylor, who (after learning the spoon test was made up by Adam) had also set out to save his mother from Dimitri.

In the end, Taylor becomes Van Helsing's partner, and they arrive to do battle with Dimitri. But even together Taylor, Adam, Chelsea and Van Helsing are unable to defeat Dimitri. Dimitri goes to bite a powerless Adam, but he and Chelsea call out to Lynette, and this breaks the spell on her (as only true love for someone can break a vampire's trance). She rushes over and throws Dimitri into his coffin. Van Helsing seals the coffin with silver-plated nails and explains that he plans to send it to a place where it's always sunny.

Shortly after Dimitri is sealed up, Van Helsing asks their mother out on a "date". However, Adam, Chelsea and Taylor believe they have heard enough of the word "date" for one night, and try to convince her to stay single -- which is when Lynette confesses, "I date...just not vampires." Finally, they all decide to go back to the Hansen house for breakfast as the sun is finally rising.


After the film premiere on Zoog Disney in 2000, Disney received many complaints about a shot in which Dimitri licks his lips while looking at the family dog, presumably because he was interested in feasting on it. The shot was removed from subsequent airings, and as of 2010 is not available on any DVD or VHS release. Despite the movie's Halloween theme, Disney opted not to show it in October 2010; it had been shown until this time.
