“..the story hits each beat so directly, it plays more like a pitch session than a finished project, digressing now and then for unnecessary chases before devolving into an out-of-place dance number..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..a scarily unfunny animated monster movie that goes awry right off the bat..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : D+

“..a children's tale missing an innovative story is still a miss, and this fall you'll likely want to book your stay at a destination other than the "Hotel Transylvania"..”
