MONSTER FAMILY (Video Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Starsìì

Monster Family thrives on weird. An odd story to serve children, the movie’s best features are the great voicing, the good animation, and the happy ending. The worst features are sloppy character development and reliance on a weird storyline for a child’s watch. Dracula’s relentless intent to steal another man’s wife seems to deserve a movie rating upgrade.

Storyline

Dracula (Jason Isaacs) becomes fixated on another man’s wife, Emma (Emily Watson), and creates havoc within the family until they come to their senses and begin realizing the importance of maintaining family integrity.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Holger Tappe for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Ralph Kamp for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Frank (Nick Frost), Fay (Jessica Brown Findlay), Cheyenne (Celia Imrie), Baba Yaga (Catherine Tate), Max (Ethan Rouse), Renfield (Ewan Bailey), Head Model (Emma Tate), and Sheila (Jessica McDonald).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The movie generates a weird energy that fails to draw one into its story.
