When October comes, I break out the scary stories.
I’ve got all sorts of shivery favorites. Which I’ll review next week! But even though I’m not usually a movie person, Halloween has all sorts of delightful treats to watch.
In previous years, my usual Halloween flicks include The Glum Pumpkin…
And The Addams Family.
But Sunday, for my sister’s birthday, I discovered a new favorite.
Hotel Transylvania is cute and fun without being overly cheesy. The story features around Dracula, who runs a hotel for monsters that’s “safe” from humans. Dracula throws a birthday party for his daughter every year, who is determined to go see the ‘real world with the terrible, dangerous humans’ on her 118th birthday.
After setting up a stunt village that terrifies his daughter into never leaving the hotel, a human winds up stumbling inside.
While it’s not as good as the Glum Pumpkin (no movie ever is), it was a delightful tale. Even if you’re not eternally 12 like I am or actually 12 and under, you’ll enjoy it.
Just make sure you eat it with candy corn for the perfect Halloween treat.
Stay tuned next week, Invisible Friends– we’ll have a scary story review! But tomorrow we’ll have a new short story and Thursday, a delectable fall cake recipe! Stay tuned!
