Stars: Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez
Dracula's got one fear--humans. In order to keep his 118-year-old little girl, Mavis, safe he's built Hotel Transylvania, a place where monsters can be themselves. No humans are allowed until backpacking Johnny makes a fateful turn and ends up in the midst of Mavis' birthday party celebration.
Oh yes, and we have every kind of monster from vampires to werewolves to the sandman. And magic--there's tables that fly into place, animated villages....Lots of spooky, ooky fun.
The story's designed for younger kids and none of the ones in the audience with us had problems. Just a lot of creepy gross monster fun. While I didn't think this movie was nearly as well executed as ParaNorman, I will be buying the Blu-Ray when it comes out because I love Halloween-type films. Definitely worth seeing--for big and little kids.
