Film review: Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania may sound like it’s just in time for Halloween, even though it’s all about style and looking quirky more than it is about scaring anybody – a bit like a Tim Burton film.

At the end of the 19th century, Count Dracula is seen taking care of his baby girl, Mavis, in the Transylvanian wilderness. Intent on never setting eyes on the evil human species ever again, he hides out in an enormous castle that he turns into a hotel for other creatures like himself, who all risk being chased out of existence by hordes of uncivilized brutes with pitchforks and burning torches.

In the present day, 118 years after her birth, Mavis reaches her majority, a milestone her father celebrates by allowing her to turn into a bat and fly off to explore the nearest human settlement.
