Reviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 1/24] | Luke Bonanno @
    • Excerpt: Sony Pictures Animation tries to find a compromise between standard Adam Sandler entertainment and the lucrative world of CG family comedies.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: Tells an insipid story with a script that manages to make that story seem even worse.
  • Samuel Castro @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Aprovechándose del histórico maltrato a los monstruos en el cine, Hotel Transylvania intenta contar una historia divertida, sin conseguirlo del todo
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Sandler and Samberg are united for the second time in 2012, this time not as father and son but as father and potential son-in-law. They were funnier the first time around.
  • Jim Dixon @
    • Excerpt: This is a far more family-friendly movie than most of Sandler’s output lately, particularly this summer’s “That’s My Boy.” The comedy is broad, and young children will likely be unable to resist non-scary monsters doing pratfalls.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: From top to bottom, Hotel Transylvania feels like a rush job.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ doddle
    • Excerpt: Other than a third act that drags on a bit longer than you-know-who’s oversized cape, Hotel Transylvania serves up a frightfully good time. Feel free to check in any time you like.
  • Panagiotis Gkaris @ Movies Ltd
    • Excerpt: In a year that big animation studios are bringing out the dead (Frankenweenie and ParaNorman being the illustrative manifestations of this latest trend), I remain in the minority claiming that Hotel Transylvania, thinly plotted or clichéd as accused, gives the films stated above a run for their money, by simply staying true to what young ages aspire from an animated story; solid fun, clear message, eye-grasping sketching.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: A stale, sloppy fright-fest that’s destined to take a quick detour to the DVD shelf, where it will inevitably stake its claim.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Dan Lybarger @
    • Excerpt: About the only thing interesting about “Hotel Transylvania” is its release date, September 28, World Rabies Day.
  • Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: a witty, lively, funny and inventive screwball animated adventure that is no masterpiece but unlike the dreary “ParaNorman”, this one keeps its comic tone and doesn’t drown itself in overwrought melodrama.
  • Márcio Sallem @ Cinema com Crítica [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Hotel Transilvânia é uma aventura inofensiva e pedestre, longe do baixo nível das produções da Happy Madison, mas carente de boas ideias.
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
