Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)

Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)


Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky

Adam Sandler’s bad run in the box office and in movie making in general can only be truncated when we don’t see his face on the screen.
Hotel Transylvania (2012) was to me not as great a movie as it was meant to be, but this part 2 was awesome. After a friend did the honors of taking me to go see it, I was totally surprised on how much I laughed, and when the movie was over I was still laughing as I recalled the events. Knowing fully well that this movie is a keeper.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky who also directed the first part, Hotel Transylvania 2 was written by Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler, although Sandler wasn’t involved in the writing of the previous movie.

The movie starts off where the other left off, with humans being more comfortable to have monsters living among them and even some have gone ahead to be in relationships with monsters. Our lead act Dracula (Adam Sandler) is not so cool with the sudden development and with his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) marrying a human, things were not just going the way Drac could have wanted.

But everything changed after Mavis and Johnny got married and Mavis was expecting their first baby. Drac was expecting a vampire baby even though he claimed he will love the child even if he was a human.
When baby Dennis (Dennisavitchas Drac decided to call his grandson) was born, Drac waited eagerly for the child to grow its fangs, knowing that after Dennisavitch 5thbirthday and no Fangs he will remain a human.

The fear of having his wonderful grandson not be a vampire and Mavis’ idea of raising Dennis in the human world caused a desperate Drac to come up with a plan to scare Dennisavitch fangs out. He took his grandson on a road trip along with his buddies Frankenstein, Wayne the Werewolf, Griffin the Invisible Man and Murray the mummy, to show Dennisavitch the fun of being a monster and scare his fangs out.

I watched this movie in anticipation of hearing the voice of comedy icon Mel Brooks as he delivers the voice to Drac’s father, Vlad.

This movie is far far better than the previous inception and judging by the amount of money it brought in (over $430 million) based on its $80 million budget Hotel Transylvania 2 is more financially successful than its predecessor.

I expect to see a Hotel Transylvania 3.
