DRAC’S PACK IS BACK.
Mavis and Jonathan are raising a little boy, but grandpa Dracula worries about him not growing fangs… The sequel moves a few years into the future and sends the Count and his monster buddies on an adventure (behind Mavis and Jonathan’s backs) to try to bring out the child’s inner vampire. In the second half, Mel Brooks makes a grand entrance as Dracula’s intimidating father, along with a villain who has to be fought in the final showdown. That part of this slight film feels forced, but earlier shenanigans in 3D are a lot more fun, with a green blob stealing scenes. The voice cast is game.
