Hotel Transylvania: Meet The Ghoulish Guests
Genndy Tartakovsky introduces his characters

submit to reddit

With Halloween fast approaching, director Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory) is getting us in the trick or treating mood with his animated monster flick Hotel Transylvania. Featuring voice talent from the likes of Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi and Kevin James, and gathering all our favourite horror personas in spooky place, Hotel Transylvania is the most fun you’ll have in Eastern Europe without actually being there. Empire spoke to Tartakovsky to see just how taxing it was bringing some of the most famously frightening faces together under one roof.

Hotel Transylvania: Meet The Ghoulish Guests  | Dracula (Adam Sandler)
Dracula (Adam Sandler)

"Vampires have gone in so many directions in the last ten years so it was really exciting to create a classic, but funny, Dracula. My favourite films growing up were Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, Young Frankenstein and Love At First Bite with George Hamilton as Dracula, so creating comedic versions of these monsters was just so much fun. When I first started drawing Dracula he looked like a Muppet. He had small eyes and a big nose and mouth set in this possum shaped face that fitted in well with the voice Adam was creating for him."

So is Frankenstein's Monster just known as Frankenstein then? Because if so, that could bug the hell out of me... also, sounds like Samberg might be playing a very similar character to the one he plays in Cuckoo, which is excellent by the way More
