Vampiress TV Review: The Thundermans

Season 4: Episode 1 "Happy Heroween"

The Thundermans was a show that aired on the Nickelodeon cable network from 2013 to 2018.  The show revolved around a family of Superheros and their everyday life or basically a live action version of the Incredibles. 

The season four premiere of the fourth season was a Halloween themed episode in which the family has plans to go out for halloween but due to a storm hitting and knocking the power out they are stuck inside.  That's when Dr Colosso decides that his goal is to tell the family stories that will scare them. 

After a story about a troll that turns kids into candy and a story of a family of monsters getting attacked by people with pitch forks scares off everyone in the family but the two oldest kids Max and Phoebe Dr Colosso then tells a story where Max Thunderman becomes a vampire.  He eventually turns their entire school into vampires leaving Phoebe and her friend Cherry to try to save everyone but eventually Phoebe is turned as well. 
Eventually Phoebe does save Max and restores his humanity but that doesn't help the rest of the kids in the school as Dr Colosso ends up being the master vampire and the rest of the kids then attack Phoebe and Max. 

Generally entertaining episode which is pretty surprising as Nickelodeon shows tend to not do the vampire genre much justice.  Audrey Whitby as Cherry does get a ton of screen time once she turns but it's a very short segment overall.  I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5
