Hotel Transylvania 2 [U] 89 mins  The Drac pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure. Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania. Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So Drac enlists his friends to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty! With the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez and Steve Buscemi.
