Influence – Hotel Transylvania 2

Following the international success of the first Hotel Transylvania children’s movie, this fall will see the release of the sequel in cinemas around the world. The story follows the same group of characters as the first film, opening with protagonist Dracula opening the Hotel Transylvania to humans for the first time. However, he worries that his half-human grandson Dennis isn’t in touch with his vampire side enough, so he enlists his ghoulish friends to put the boy through a ‘monster-in-training’ boot camp – which is then interrupted by the arrival of Dracula’s cantankerous father. With vampires, werewolves, mummies and Frankenstein’s monster taking to the silver screen, there’s plenty of spooky action for kids of all ages to enjoy.
