Hotel Transylvania (2012)

 Halloween is a perfect time to have a lot of fun while being scared. And Hollywood knows this with the films they come out with. One of these flicks is “Hotel Transylvania”, an amazing visual masterpiece in the field of animation, as well as bringing the Halloween spirit to kids. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, best known for his television work on shows like ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’ and ‘Samurai Jack’, the film has all the charm and fun of a Halloween movie should have. Despite having some minor problems with the cast, the movie itself is not that bad. “Hotel Transylvania” is a good animated film that will treat anyone this Halloween.

 The story involves Dracula (Adam Sandler) who turns his castle into a hotel for monsters everywhere. The main reason he did this is because of the hatred that humans bring to monsters. On Dracula’s daughter’s birthday, a human named Jonathan (Andy Samberg) stumbles upon the castle, causing Dracula to freak out. Now, Dracula must hide Jonathan from the other monsters and his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) before the secret gets out.

 “Hotel Transylvania” is not that bad of a film. The acting is surprisingly good. Adam Sandler brought his friends along, which includes Kevin James, David Spade, and Jon Lovitz, providing voices of some of the most famous monsters including the Frankenstein Monster, the invisible man, and Quasimodo respectively. The rest of the cast does a pretty good job as well. The writing is humorous will make both kids and adults of all ages. In fact, the whole movie sort of feels like a remake of the 1960’s animated film “Mad Monster Party”, just more modernized. The pacing is nice and smooth and the music fits the movie perfectly. But what really makes the movie stand out is the animation.

 Genndy Tartakovsky was originally an animator before he took on this project from several other animation directors, and choosing him was the right choice. Everything has a lot creativity, and the entire production has a Tex Avery quality to it This is one of the finest animated movies of the year.

 With that being said, there is a minor complaint about the cast. Andy Samberg was a poor choice to be the human. He just felt like someone from the 90s having a lot of energy to, and it just seemed out of place for him to be in this movie.

 In conclusion, “Hotel Transylvania” is a perfect addition to one’s Halloween enjoyment, or for anyone who loves animation.
