The Hotel Transylvania is an entertaining movie that is good for all ages. If you have kids and want to enjoy a movie that is entertaining for adults and children this is the way to go. I watched the matinee showing because it is a little cheaper and thought it would be less crowded how mistaken was I. I liked the themes in the movie and showed how it is hard to let go of your kids when they grow up. The movie is told in a perspective from a monster who because of fear of humans creates a hotel that is monster friendly. The various monsters are free to be themselves without fear of being persecuted by the evil humans. It is refreshing seeing life on the other side of the coin where we are the monsters and we scare others. It is Dracula’s fear that his daughter will meet the fate that his wife does that drives him to build his sanctuary for monsters. It is all good until his daughters 118 birthday when she wants to go into the world of which he has sheltered her from. Unexpectedly a stranger from the outside world penetrates into the monster world and shows us that love crosses all barriers. Against odds and Dracula’s wishes Mavis his daughter falls in love with the stranger and Dracula does his best to keep her with him. In the end there is a compromise and monsters and humans live together in harmony.
