Monster Family (2018)




Critic Consensus: Monster Family promises a family-friendly animated monster mash, but succeeds only in delivering a viewing experience so lackluster that parents may find it genuinely frightening.

Critic Reviews for Monster Family

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (1)

An anything-goes hodgepodge in need of a smarter, tighter narrative and more deftly conceived and rendered characters.

February 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Messy, confusing animated monster tale has violence.

July 10, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Narrative logic leaps scupper story coherence, while the Tom Jones-loving Drac... seems like he's in a different movie to all the other characters.

March 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

With editing, pacing and screenplay all misfiring, it gets odder and less enjoyable.

March 4, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There is an excellent chance that nobody will like this film, which tells, terribly, of a family turned into classic monsters -- not the children it is aimed at, nor the parents who sit through it.

March 4, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It was brave of the producers to hire a co-writer called Catharina Junk.
