Rating: 4 out of 5.

(spoiler-free movie review)

Hotel Transylvania is a popular movie at my house during the Halloween season. It’s an ideal candidate for a family friendly film to watch with your kids.

Hotel Transylvania has an all-star cast and each character is expertly voice acted. Jon Lovitz as Quasimodo and Steve Buscemi as Wayne the Werewolf were stand-outs, but everyone was in top-form.
