Hotel Transylvania Review | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade:

Is it just me, or has there been some kind of paradigm shift when it comes to holiday-themed movies? I mean, there have always been films specifically geared towards Halloween, but it seems like there have already been many themed towards the spooky holiday instead of Christmas – the normal Hollywood standby. ParaNorman was a great start to this trend of creepy cinema, and then Sinister, Frankenweenie and Paranormal Activity 4 could be very promising in the Halloween line-up. For now, we have Hotel Transylvania, the newest animated endeavor from Sony Pictures Animation. They’ve dazzled audiences in the past with Open Season, Surf’s Up (my personal favorite) and their loose adaptation of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and now this film seems to ooze freshness due to its unique and kid-friendly plot. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of Dracula running a hotel for monsters to stay at? In the end, does Hotel Transylvania do its job at entertaining moviegoers of all... (Cinema, Hotel Transylvania) 7.0/10
