Drac is back in Hotel Transylvania 2. Read Kidzworlds Blu-ray review to catch up with your favorite monsters!

The Hotel Transylvania sequel reunites ‘Drac’s Pack’ of loveable characters, led by “Vampa” Drac (Adam Sandler) as they try to put Mavis (Selena Gomez) and Johnny’s (Andy Samberg) son Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp to bring out his vampire side. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay the family a visit to the hotel.  And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania, it doesn’t take long for things to get batty!

The Bottom Line

It's hard for a sequel to have the magic of the original movie, but Hotel Transylvania 2 comes pretty close. 'Vampa' Drac, Mavis and the whole crew are back for a new adventure, and it's almost as fun as the first time. HT2 is pure family fun, especially since the plotline revolves around the differences between generations in family (it turns out, vampires have roughly the same family dynamics as everyone else.)

HT2 isn't just funny, it also looks great. The animation is crisp and bright on Blu-ray, and since it's not an action-movie - unless you include the monster bootcamp parts - it's just as fun on the small screen as it is in theaters.

The Blu-ray combo pack and DVD are full of extras, including Fifth Harmony’s “I’m in Love With a Monster” music video, a character sketch gallery, an inside look at how the filmmakers and animators created Hotel Transylvania 2. Exclusive to the Blu-ray are interactive featurettes on how to throw the ultimate monster party and draw your favorite characters from the film, a special Monster Scary-oke, which gives viewers the chance to sing along with Dennisovitch to spooky versions of three classic songs.

All in all, this sequel is a great addition to your family movie night films, it's bright, fun, funny and just a little kooky.
