The monsters are back in the first movie of the Halloween season, Hotel Transylvania 2. The Drac Pack is back including Dracula--voiced by Adam Sandler, Frankenstein--voiced by Kevin James, The Wolf Man--voiced by Steve Buscemi, The Invisible Man--voiced by David Spade, and The Mummy--voiced by Keegan-Michael Key. Also returning is Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez) and Jonathan (voiced by Andy Samberg) with their new half human, half vampire son, Dennis (voiced by Asher Blinkoff).

Mavis and Jonathan get married and have a kid of their own. Drac is waiting for Dennis to grow his fangs, but that doesn’t seem to be happening. Because Dennis is not becoming a monster, Mavis wants to move her family to California. With this in mind, Dracula and his pals try to help Dennis get his fangs before he has to leave.

While not the most morally intriguing, it does have its high points. The relationship between the characters is very good and the movie does an excellent job of showcasing emotional moments between characters. While the animation of the first Hotel Transylvania was a little cartoony, Hotel Transylvania 2 is drenched in it. This helps make the humor of this movie very fresh and lively. The voice acting from the main cast of Hotel Transylvania 2 is very good, and as for the side characters like Grandpa Mike (played Nick Offerman) and Vlad (played by the great comic actor Mel Brooks). Hotel Transylvania 2, while the target audience is mainly kids, it will still entertain you with its wonderful animation and characters. See it at a theater near you.
