Drac. Johnny. Mavis. For 10 years Hotel Transylvania has been navigating Monster/Human relations in its many forms. From Monster-Human prejudice and fear, to Monster-Human love, to Human-Monster fear and prejudice all the way to Human-Monster transformation. Oh wait. That last one. Pretend I didn’t say that.

The gang is all back for Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. After a hundred years of running the hotel, Drac is ready to retire and spend some time relaxing. And Johnny is ready to take over. But is Drac ready for a human to take over? That is the question. Johnny has idea after idea to improve things at the hotel. But they are both about to get a fresh perspective thanks to Van Helsing’s Human/Monster transformation ray.

My Take

Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is a worthy swansong to the Hotel Transylvania saga. The story was entertaining and funny and wraps it all up nicely. I’m not going to lie and say that Adam Sandler and Kevin James weren’t missed as the voices of Drac and Frankie, but not so much that it ruined the movie. Luckily the rest of the gang is back and they live up to the funny. Was the movie perfect? No. But there have only been 6 of those (in my book anyway). But it ranks pretty high on the family fun’o’meter. So, if you happened to like any of the previous Hotel Transylvania movies, this one will not disappoint you. If you aren’t a fan, well, there is no accounting for taste. So go check it out on Prime Video today.


Drac and the Pack are back, like you’ve never seen them before in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new adventure that presents Drac (Brian Hull) with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing’s (Jim Gaffigan) mysterious invention, the ‘Monsterification Ray,’ goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny (Andy Samberg) becomes a monster! In their new mismatched bodies, Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before it’s too late, and before they drive each other crazy. With help from Mavis (Selena Gomez) and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent. The film also features the voices of Kathryn Hahn (Ericka), Steve Buscemi (Wayne), Molly Shannon (Wanda), David Spade (Griffin the Invisible Man), Keegan-Michael Key (Murray), Fran Drescher (Eunice), Brad Abrell (Frank), and Asher Blinkoff (Dennis). 

For the final chapter of the Hotel Transylvania film series, franchise creator Genndy Tartakovsky returns as one of the screenwriters and executive producers. Selena Gomez will also serve as an executive producer, while reprising her role as Drac’s daughter, Mavis, alongside Andy Samberg, returning as Johnny. Directed by Derek Drymon and Jennifer Kluska, the film is produced by Alice Dewey Goldstone and executive produced by Tartakovsky, Michelle Murdocca, and Gomez. The story is by Genndy Tartakovsky with a screenplay by Amos Vernon & Nunzio Randazzo and Genndy Tartakovsky.
