The fourth part of the 'Hotel Transylvania' franchise is an absolute delightful watch. It's got something for everybody, age no bar! 

The movie revolves around the Dracula (or Drac), his daughter Mavis, and son-in-law, Johnathan (or Johny), among the rest of the gang at the hotel. After giving some serious thought, Drac decides that it's time for him to retire and hand over his precious hotel to Mavis.

Unfortunately for him, Mavis overhears his conversation with Ericka and passes on that info to Johnny, who gets over the top excited. When Drac finds out about this, he instantly changes his decision. His understanding is that Johnny will eventually make big changes to his most prized possession, the hotel. Instead of handing over the keys, Drac says that he cannot part with the hotel to Johnny, because of a monster law; Johnny doesn't come under this category. 

After an accidental switch that transforms Drac into a human and Johnny into a monster, the movie follows the near-death experience of a journey to find the crystal that powers the gun of magic! 

One of the most heartfelt moments in the movie is when Drac realizes that he was in the wrong for judging Johnny the whole time. In fact, he even compares Johnny to a marshmallow, someone who's all soft on the inside although it may not seem so at first! 

All in all, like the previous 3 movies, the fourth addition is just as much entertaining, so don't miss out! 

'Hotel Transylvania: Transformania' is available to stream on Amazon Prime.
