Hotel Transylvania (2012) Poster

Goofs

Character error 

Frankenstein, despite being terrified of a tiny match and unable to fly because an airplane engine might catch fire, is okay with a torch-lit castle and a sauna powered by a fire-breathing dragon.
Unlike many characters in the movie that were once human but later became monsters, Quasimodo (aka the Hunchback of Notre Dame) was never a monster but simply a human with a physical deformity.
When playing bingo, after the number is called, every player stamps in the incorrect column except for Mavis.
Dracula was able to freeze Johnny in mid-air while he's falling. But in Quasimodo's Kitchen he froze Quasimodo but Quasi fell after being froze.

Continuity 

In the first chaos scene after Johnny enters the hotel (when he realizes the monsters are real) a fly is depicted with multiple eyes (like a fly would have). in all later depictions of the flies, they have human-like eyes, with whites and pupils, etc.
When Dracula takes Johnny up to the hotel room with Glen's trapdoor, there's no shrunken head on the door. When he escorts Mavis out, there's now a shrunken head there. This head also has the same voice as the head on Mavis' door.

In Quasimodo's Kitchen Johnny frees himself from the gag to speak and its around his neck. But after Drac rescues him the gag disappears.

Factual errors 

(at around 45 mins) When Mavis and Jonathan are on the roof, watching the sun rise, the lower portion of the roof becomes lit by the sun first, leaving the upper portion in shadow. A real sunrise would light the roof from the top down.
When they are playing Bingo the announcer says N27. In actual Bingo, only numbers 31 through 45 fall under the N column. Twenty seven would actually fall under the I column
The Air Transylvania airliner raises its landing gear much later than it normally would. Typically the gear is raised right after the plane is safely airborne.

When she is in the roof, Mavis can't see the sunrise because she's in the shadow. The chimney covers the sun.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

(at around 1h 19 mins) After Dracula chases the plane with Johnny on it, he crashes into Mavis' room and returns to his human form. When he appears through the smoke, his face is sunburned and there are hole burnt in his cape. In the very next shot, his skin is its usual pale white color and his cape is intact. What actually happens is that his cape,clothes and skin can be seen repairing themselves.

Plot holes 

Dracula is able to erase minds, when Quasi found out Johnny's human Drac could have erased his mind so he wouldn't tell the other monsters later.

Revealing mistakes 

As Dracula heads up to Mavis' room at the beginning of the movie, he passes by a number of other hotel rooms. The last door he passes, the witch/maid greets him, and the head says, "Maid, clean up this room!" You can see the number plate on this door, room #174. Later, after Mavis' "trip", Dracula approaches her door, and we can see the number plate, room #174.
While Eunice is playing Bingo, and has five cards infront of her with different dot patterns, all the cards have exactly the same numbers in all the same positions. When the shot pans to the old monster next to her, she also has the exact same bingo card.
