We will try to keep this review spoiler free, up until a point. But, we will warn you if there are any spoilers at any point. With that being said, let us get started!

What Is The Story?

Hotel Transylvania 2 is the second film in this movie service. The story centers on Mavis, who is the daughter of Dracula, who falls in love with a human named Jonathan.

In the second film Mavis and Jonathan get married and have a son named Dennis who lives at the monster hotel with the rest of his family.

Dennis is half human and half vampire, because of this it is unclear whether he has inherited vampiric powers or if he is more like his human dad.

He has until his fifth birthday to grow fangs and prove that he is a vampire like his mother and grandpa Drac. 

The story follows Dracula as he tries to help his grandson produce his fangs so that Mavis and Jonathan do not take Dennis away to live in a human town where he might fit in better

There are a few ‘scary face’ moments from Dracula but they are over so quickly that you probably won’t even notice them.
