Sent the kid to sleep
5 March 2018 | by elinavarroSee all my reviews

Quite possibly the worst film I've ever had the misfortune of sitting through. Even the vocal talents of Jason Isaacs and Celia Imrie couldn't save it.

Appalling script, cast sound as though they'd be more excited to read the phone book, rehashed storyline, endless fart jokes.

One kid liked the bats, the other fell asleep after 30mins.

If you want a decent monster movie - stick with the likes of Hotel Transylvania and avoid this like the plague.

Suggest Sky stick with their monstrous prices and leave the monster movies to the experts.
