When Mavis and Johnny go to visit Johnny’s parents, Dracula and his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a 'monster-in-training' boot camp.

Critic Reviews of "Hotel Transylvania 2"
San Francisco ChronicleSeptember 30, 2015
"Hotel Transylvania 2" is an unfortunate throwback to about 20 years ago, when animated movies were more widely accepted as cinematic babysitters.
ChristyLemire.comSeptember 29, 2015
Hotel Transylvania 2 is the greatest movie Adam Sandler and Kevin James have ever made together. I believe this is called "damning with faint praise."
Time OutSeptember 28, 2015
So much attention has been paid to crafting a relentless string of in-jokes meant for ancient horror fans that the storyline limps from tired blood.
New York Magazine/VultureSeptember 27, 2015
Yes, every joke in the film is low-hanging fruit, but not a single one is left unpicked.
San Diego ReaderSeptember 25, 2015
The onslaught [of gags] isn't painful, but neither does it do much to distract from the ho-hum story.
RogerEbert.comSeptember 25, 2015
This subpar sequel barely comes close to being as amusing as any run-of-the-mill "Munsters" TV episode.
Irish IndependentDecember 05, 2016
A lazy and derivative sequel to the modestly successful 2012 children's animation.
Antagony & EcstasyJune 05, 2016
All of these exertions are just enough to graze the 90 minute mark, after which the film gratefully whumps to a close taking its paint-by-numbers character arcs and hopelessly generic jokes with it.

There are few things as sad as an unkept promise, Hotel Transylania 2 does that for movies. [Full review in Spanish]
CinemixtapeApril 12, 2016
With a joke well that runs dry nearly an hour too early, watches will be checked and previously unwanted popcorn kernels will be rigorously examined.
South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
A rip-roaring monster ball finale, complete with a whopping great punch-up featuring Dracula, Frankenstein, werewolves and bats, more than makes up for the flaws.
Cairo360April 05, 2016
Light on intelligent humour, heavy on the slapstick, the result is once again a mixed bag; an animated effort which will please the young viewers, but not anyone older than maybe 10.
