Adam Sandler as Dracula looks more like Count Chocula

10.31.2011

Sony Pictures Animation has posted the first character designs from their upcoming film HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, and they're all of Dracula. Voiced by Adam Sandler, this Dracula isn't the one you're familiar with, as he has a teenage daughter he's overprotective of. To keep her safe he opens up the titular hotel to house all the world's famous monsters in peace and quiet.

I don't about you but I keep picturing this guy hawking some sweetened cereal. 

Sandler's not the only big name in this film, oh no. Kevin James will play Frank (Frankenstein's monster) and Fran Drescher will voice Eunice, his bride. Cee Lo Green plays Murray, a Mummy who was "once entertainer to the great Pharaohs, now the life of the party, and always feeling the urge to let loose and sing". David Spade plays Quasimodo. 

Horrific already, eh? Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon are in there as a pair of married werewolves and Andy Samberg will play Jonathan, some regular guy who books the wrong hotel.

Expect HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA to hit next September. Head to Sony Pictures Animation's Facebook page for more art and spooky-fun marshmallows.

Sounds like an old stop motion animation movie from the 60's called Mad Monster Party.

Is this classic animation or CGI? If it's classic, it'll give me flashbacks of "Eight Crazy Nights," from which the only relief may be to leap from a tall building into busy traffic.

I might've been interested in something like this when I was about eight, but on top of the Universal horror parodies being run into the ground decades ago, this just sounds pretty dreadful. Yeah, the Jonathan part is actually maybe the only thing that seems remotely funny.

I gotta hand it to these people for having the balls to attempt any sort of resuscitation Fran Drescher's career.

This is the first film directed by Genndy (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, The Clone Wars & Sym-Bionic Titan fame" Tartakovsky. I also dig this sketch because it has an old school 2D quality to it.

Good god, you're right. It IS being directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. Fuck, I so wanted to just hate and ignore this movie.

He's never going to make a Samurai Jack movie at this rate, is he.

well sounds cool to me. Hopefully it will be better than Adam's recent live action stuff, though I did like Grownups.

Of course they name him Frank. They always fucking name him Frank. Not only is it tired and unfunny, it's not even correct! He's not Frankenstein, he's Frankenstein's MONSTER god damn it. He's just "Monster"!

That story is going to be 200 years old in a decade. How long does it fucking take to learn a character's name??

Wow, for someone who raves like that, you'd think *YOU* would know he has a name and it is NOT "just Monster", it is "Adam".

Kevin James

Why did Kevin James sell his soul to Adam Sandler? I used to enjoy him on "King of Queens", but he now seems to be forever linked to Sandler's films. He will never make a good movie again. (On second thought, he never made a good movie, but he will never have the opportunity if he continues working with Sandler.)

Actually reminds me of him in 8 crazy nights. And the premise sorta brought to mind a couple of the Scooby Doo movies, the ones with the monsters' kids and the one where shaggy must race

"Count Chocula" I thought the same at first glance. I'm game for this CGI flick!

I'm actually really impressed with Adam Sandler. Somehow, every single movie he makes now sounds worse then the last one. I miss Barry Egan.

The worst part of Fran Drescher...

is her voice. And that's the only part they're using?
For a lark I just watched a duck tales Haloween episode. It boasts the exact same line-up of monsters, but I bet it ends up being slightly more humorouse than this movie and 1/4 as long.

While Fran Drescher as the Bride of Frankenstein certainly made me cringe, they completely lost me with the addition of Cee Lo Green as a singing mummy. Awful.

I don't know, I kind of dig the premise. I chuckled at "Jonathan, some regular guy who books the wrong hotel."

If this was some hard PG-13 movie for adults and kids, I'd be down. But this sounds like it's gonna be the most bland family-friendly affair possible. Poop on this.
