In this brash and frenetic CGI-animated ghoul-fest, Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) has kept his daughter (Selena Gomez) away from torch-bearing humans for a century by operating a castle resort for famous monsters only. But he can only watch in horror when she falls for a stray backpacker (Andy Samberg, from BBC3 comedy
). TV-cartoon genius director Genndy Tartakovsky (
Star Wars: Clone Wars
) fails to add anything of note to the hackneyed overprotective-dad story, which is etched in often overbearingly exaggerated style. Nor do the snippets of inconsequential songs help. All the genre references are obvious, the slapstick sight gags a pale Tex Avery imitation and, despite a few acceptable groaners - zombie Beethoven, scream-cheese hors d'oeuvres, shrunken head "do not disturb" tags, digs at
- it's painfully unfunny. True, the ultimate message about ignorance being the scariest thing of all is a sincere one, but it gets lost in the nonstop, eager-to-please, uninspired zaniness.
