Episode 9 – Hotel Transylvania 2

Dracula putting Dennis in carseat - monsters behindAdrian Young and Matt Robison discuss the 2015 animated comedy, Hotel Transylvania 2.

During this episode, we talk about: the classic monster¬†movies of old and the throw-backs in the movie, the relation between “monster” movies and the “slasher” movie, the history of physical comedy in animation, superimposing relatable archetypes on top of these recognizable monsters, adding a personality to a mummy, some of the potentially serious subject matter like cross-cultural marriages, the overall lack of focus, favorite B movies, why Mavis even likes Johnny, the genius of Mel Brooks, how jammed-packed the voice talent is overall, and the final fight sequence that gets the high praise of “better than tenuous.”
