Hotel Transylvania (90 min., PG) An animated feature about a hostelry built by Dracula. Its clientele are monsters. Kids under 8 may flinch at seeing vampires turn into bats, and to see the likes of Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, and the Fly, as well as blobs, skeletons, shrunken heads, and more. Some of the monsters lose heads or limbs while roughhousing and then reattach them. There are jokes about drinking blood. Though he’s sworn off violence, Dracula has a temper, and his face goes scarily red while he seethes.
