‘They’re back to raise a little terror’
Hotel Transylvania 2 is a 2015 American 3D animated comedy horror feature film produced by Sony Pictures Animation and is the sequel to the 2012 film Hotel Transylvania. It is directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (who also helmed the first movie) from a screenplay by Adam Sandler and Robert Smigel.
Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein), David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi and Fran Drescher.
The film was released on September 25, 2015, by Columbia Pictures.
When Vlad, the old-old-old-fashioned vampire father of Count Dracula, arrives at the hotel for an impromptu family get-together, Hotel Transylvania is in for a collision of supernatural old-school and modern day cool.
“It’s an episodic, energetically animated gag factory from the pen of Adam Sandler, and while it’s the best screenplay to bear his name in years, it also warps some overfamiliar family-movie concerns until they become unavoidable in their ickiness.” AV Club
“Given a larger canvas to fill, director Tartakovsky has fun contrasting Johnny’s Northern California stomping grounds with the now-gentrified world of Drac’s formative years, with energetically rendered, more colorful computer-generated results. The evident character development is further boosted by the voice cast…” The Hollywood Reporter
