On the one hand there are people who still flip out at horror movies and its “degradation of society”, and on the other it is becoming more accessible with movies like Frankenweenie, Paranorman, and this one, Hotel Transylvania (voiced by the likes of Adam Sandler and some of his old pals like Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Jon Lovitz and Kevin James, as well as teeny-bopper Selena Gomez).
With a lot of family values and tolerance issues injected amid the laughs, gags and (atrocious) music (choices), this animated family flick is hardly a horror movie, but fun nonetheless.
Extra features include a commentary track, deleted scenes, highlighting two of the (terrible) songs, and Goodnight Mr. Foot (a wacky bonus Ren & Stimpy flavoured Big Foot animated short set in Hotel Transylvania).
