HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, GRADE C-PLUS: Dracula (Adam Sandler) has created a hotel for monsters that he believes is completely hidden from the human world. His main motivation for the creepiest lodging this side of Psycho is his daughter, Mavis (Selena Gomez). Dracula promised his wife that he would keep their daughter safe, but that's getting more difficult now that she's 118 and ready to see the world.
SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS, GRADE A-MINUS: A struggling screenwriter gets involved with Los Angeles' criminal underworld.
The focal point for the movie's oddball insanity is Marty (Colin Farrell), a writer who's creatively blocked. All he has is a title for his next book – Seven Psychopaths – and a best friend, Billy (Sam Rockwell), who splits his time between stealing dogs with Hans (Christopher Walken) and trying to be part of Marty's next book.
