Hotel Transylvania: Transformania – Review

Spread the love

Change can be scary when your Dracula

Here comes Hotel Transylvaina: Transformania the fourth and final installment in one of my favorite animated series. 

At the core of all the films it’s all about family and as the Dracula family grows so does the pain he feels with wanted (grandson) and unwanted changes (Johnny!). Despite handing off the film to Derek Drymon and Jennifer Kluska it still has that monster magic sprinkled on it from Genndy Tartakovsky. 

The film starts off with major life changes as Drac (Brian Hull) and his boo Ericka (Kathryn Hahn) look forward to riding off into the ‘sunset’. Ericka wants Drac to truly embrace change, shake cobwebs off their feet, and embark on a new path. Ericka no longer being a Van Helsing Monster Hunter and Drac not in charge at the hotel. It’s time to hand the key over to Mavis (Selena Gomez) but that means Johnny (Andy Samberg) too and Drac isn’t liking the changes he thinks will happen. That’s when the movie goes into overdrive as a buddy comedy with Drac and Johnny trying to save themselves and all their friends who’ve become human and in the case of Johnny a monster. Amos Vernon, Nunzia Randazzo, and Genndy Tartakovsky wrote a script that will have kids and adults laughing as well. It’s a great ending to a beloved movie series that always at heart is about family. 

I enjoyed the movie and look forward to watching it again on Amazon Prime on January 14th.

Drac and the Pack are back like you’ve never seen them before in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new adventure that presents Drac (Brian Hull) with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing’s (Jim Gaffigan) mysterious invention, the ‘Monsterification Ray,’ goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny (Andy Samberg) becomes a monster! In their new mismatched bodies, Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before it’s too late and before they drive each other crazy. With help from Mavis (Selena Gomez) and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent. The film also features the voices of Kathryn Hahn (Ericka), Steve Buscemi (Wayne), Molly Shannon (Wanda), David Spade (Griffin the Invisible Man), Keegan-Michael Key (Murray), Fran Drescher (Eunice), Brad Abrell (Frank), and Asher Blinkoff (Dennis).
