The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hotel Translyvania (2012)

Starring: Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, CeeLo Green, Jon Lovitz,
Director: Genndy Tartakovsky

Count Dracula runs a remote hotel where monsters can come and not fear mankind. But a young traveler accidentally finds the castle and crashes the Count's daughter birthday party. Now the Count must deal with the human and try to convince his daughter the outside world is too dangerous for her to venture out into.

My Take:
I was fairly entertained by the this movie at least to until the terrible musical number to end it. But I suppose the kids will like it. At the end of the day, it is a decent and fun flick for the whole family to enjoy.

Rating: In the middle

  1. My kids scared of everything...she probably couldn't handle this one day I'll make her love horror movies.

  2. I just had a flashback to my childhood at family movie night and Friday the 13th series.
    Maybe that's not the route to go. Try The Exorcist instead. No, scratch the idea too.
