Blah, Blah, Blah!
on 26 February 2016
I watched this when it was released and it is easily one of my favourite children's films but my son had always been too young until now to watch it and he loves it. The film has been on a near constant loop on our DVD player for at least a week and thankfully with the release of Hotel Transylvania 2 my son is now happily obsessively watching that for a change!
The film run time is approximately 1 hour 30 mins and this DVD is one disc. There are also special features on the disc:-
Goodnight Mr Foot Mini Movie
Problem (Monster Remix) music video and behind the scenes
DVD-ROM link to fun games - Please note this does not work at all and takes you to a discontinued page on the Sony website and so it appears this feature link has been stopped by Sony
I'm sure most people know the premise of the movie by now but it's basically about a hotel run for monsters only with no access to those terrible humans who hunt and persecute monsters. Dracula built Hotel Transylvania as a sanctuary for monsters after he lost his wife to a pitchfork wielding mob. Dracula's daughter Mavis is soon to turn 118 and so he has invited all of the monsters including his friends Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and The Werewolf to a special party for her. Unfortunately a human backpacker stumbles upon the hotel with hilarious consequences when Dracula has to hide his real identity from the other monsters to prevent an all out panic that there is a scary human in their sanctuary!
The film is really funny and the storyline is brilliant and well thought out. Thankfully there aren't really any scary parts in the film and so this should be suitable for most children and my son and younger daughter both love watching this film.
