We don’t feature animation here on FEARnet.com that often, but when an animated film comes along that features the classic movie monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy we have to bend the rules a little. Hotel Transylvania (out on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD January 29) takes these beloved beasts and brings them together to tell a hilarious tale that also pushes the importance of acceptance and being proud of who you are. With voice acting from Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Selena Gomez, and many more, the film is one of several animated films recently that have delved into slightly darker territory (and we’re all the better for it).
You only have a few lines in Hotel Transylvania, but »
