Monster Family 2018 – Despite the title, the Wishbone family are far from happy. In an attempt to reconnect as a family, Mum and Emma plan a fun night out. However, her plan backfires when an evil witch curses them, and they’re all turned into Monsters.
Count Dracula (Jason Isaacs) is lonely, with only his trio of musical bats for company, so when Emma Wishbone (Emily Watson) shows him some kindness, he puts his plans of world domination on hold to try and win her heart by turning her dysfunctional family into your favourite movie monsters; a vampire, a mummy, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman.
Being overly critical of animated fare is tough, especially when you’re not the target audience, but even with that caveat, Monster Family is a derivative bore that will fail to entertain all but those with a predilection for fart jokes.
While watching Monster Family, it’s worth noting that the genre landscape has changed. It’s not like you have to wait six months for an animated
