I see that IMDB changed  "The Vampire Santa", a series of 7 feature-length movies (in the fashion of "Star Wars"), to a TV Series. Please change it back!

Hello Sal, 
You said that it was a series of 7 movies, why shouldn't it be shown as a series?

Because they are feature-length films. Perhaps, if I could change the titles to remove the word "Episode".

Maybe a new catagory is in order: "Film Series"

Do they share the same opening credits?

Does that make a difference?  There are some differences, (ie, director, producers)

I've sent an e-mail to IMDB support asking that they make the changes.

Hello, Sal. 

Adding to what was said already, if those are separate feature films which are a franchise, they should be added as separate titles. However right now situation is all the more unclear considering that "The Vampire Santa" only has two episodes added while you suggest we are talking about seven movies. Are some of those still in production, like The Vampire Who Saved Christmas

Are those movies available publicly in order to have sufficient references to start working on the situation? 

As for "film series" as a new format: unfortunately, for now IMDb is so far reluctant to add a film serial, a format which was popular in 1910's 1940's, which could have been a solution. So far film serials usually have one page with no episodes reflected.

"The Vampire Who Saved Christmas" is a totally separate film  -- not at all related to the seven in "The Vampire Santa" franchise.    If IMDB will restore the first film, I will re-enter the second with a different title.

Hi Sal,

I can see that The Vampire Who Saved Christmas is currently listed as a standalone movie, have my colleagues now solved your issue?

Regards,
Will

No, I would like to get rid of "The Vampire Santa" TV Series.  I will re-enter "The Vampire Santa: Episode 1 - The Beginning" as "The Vampire Santa" (a feature film) and "The Vampire Santa: Episode 2 - Nicholas and the Vampirates" as "The Vampire Santa and His Vampirates" (a feature film).  Unless you (or one of your colleagues) can make the changes for me . "The Vampire Who saves Christmas"  is an unrelated feature film. Or could I rename them, "The Vampire Santa: The Beginning" and "The Vampire Santa: The Vampirates", respectively?

Hi Sal,

I have filed a ticket with our data editors to review the titles and policy surrounding the formatting.

Thanks

Hi Sal, 

Apologies for the delay. I can see our colleagues have already fixed this issue via the contact form on the site. If this is not the case and the series is still live on the site, please let us know providing a link to the incorrect title and we will investigate further. 

Thanks
Meredith
