MONSTER FAMILY (PG) H HHHH AN EARLY contender for the worst family film of the year, only the naughtiest kids should be exposed to this monstrously poor animated horror show.

A lovelorn Count Dracula orders a witch to magically transform a married mother of two into a vampire so he can woo her.

Unfortunately, her stupid bickering family are also changed into various legendary creatures, such as Frankenstein's monster, and they're not best pleased.

Pratfalls and fart jokes pad out the script of this repetitive, joyless, charmless, mind-numbing drivel.

It's brought to zombified life by feasting on the creative blood of far superior films such as Pixar's Incredibles and Hotel Transylvania - sequels to which are out this summer.

Horrifyingly, this is even worse than Tom Cruise's recent version of The Mummy.

Emily Watson, Nick Frost, Celia Imrie, Jason Isaacs and Catherine Tate are the British voice talents putting a stake through the heart of their credibility for an easy payday.


Monster trash: Emma (voiced by Emily Watson), Max (Ethan Rouse), Frank (Nick Frost) and Fay (Jessica Brown Findlay)
