Six Worst Draculas: Hotel Transylvania

For Halloween tomorrow, I’m going to finish my list of the Six Worst Draculas. However, tonight, I’m including a dishonorable mention. 2012 was the year the world was supposed to come to an end (remember that whole Mayan prophecy thing that wasn’t really a Mayan prophecy that had everyone freaking out?), but while the world didn’t end, that year took a shot at putting the last stake in Dracula with the animated film Hotel Transylvania.

Dishonorable Mention: Adam Sandler in Hotel Transylvania

Adam Sandler as Dracula in Hotel TransylvaniaSure, I could point to the fact that Dracula was reduced to starring in a kids film. Even worse, the film turned him into an overprotective dad. Let’s be honest, though, you only need two words to explain why this film’s Dracula deserves a place on this list, even if it is only as a dishonorable mention: Adam Sandler.

So why only a dishonorable mention? Because I’ve never even seen the entire film. I’ve sat through a good portion of it, but even if I hadn’t, I’d be including this version of Dracula on my list. Sorry, when it comes to movies, Adam Sandler is always a good reason not to watch. I’m sure some of you feel differently. You might have been suckered in by the cute animation or the father/daughter storyline, but there’s not enough positives to make me sit through an Adam Sandler film, even if it’s only his voice.

Tomorrow, I finish my list with the worst Dracula ever. I’ll warn you in advance that my #1 pick will definitely be the most obscure of my choices for this list.
