2012 Guide Analysis: ""Dexter's Laboratory" and "Samurai Jack" creator Genndy Tartakovsky makes his feature directing debut on this 3D CG animated family horror comedy set at a five-star Romanian resort for the world's monsters. It's there the hotel's owner Dracula (Adam Sandler) tries stopping his teenage daughter (Miley Cyrus) falling for a curious young man (Andy Samberg) who has just checked in.

Tartakovsky is actually about the fourth person to be attached to direct the project since it began development over five years ago. Once onboard though he got into production with a hell of a major cast voicing some famous classic monsters. On the list are Kevin James as Frankenstein, Cee Lo Green as a Mummy, Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as married werewolves, David Spade as the Invisible Man, and David Koechner as the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Sony Animation is coming off the under performing "Arthur Christmas" which sadly failed to find much of an audience despite strong reviews. However with both this and "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" in March, it looks like they've got winners that should definitely find some love at the box-office."
