I recently reviewed Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania for Flick Feast:
The most recent big screen offering from Sony Pictures Animation is an enjoyable and visually stylish comedy that while not matching the high watermark set by much of Pixar’s output or some of the DreamWorks stable, is still an above average fun-filled romp.
Hotel Transylvania emerged on these shores around the same time as much vaunted stop-motion animation’s Paranorman and Frankenweenie. This trio of ghoulish child-friendly movies were all well received but Hotel Transylvania was somewhat lost in the wake of the other two. That’s not to say it didn’t perform well at the box office, indeed it achieved the highest grossing opening September weekend ever in the States, but it came to be seen critically as something of an inferior rival to the other two horror themed offerings. It’s a shame in a way that Hotel Transylvania was released at a similar time to those two movies as it seemed to come and go with very little fanfare. On Blu-ray however it should receive a more than warranted second lease of life as it really is a thoroughly entertaining comedy that while perhaps less adult-friendly than Pixar’s output, still provides enough laughs to make it well worth seeking out.
