Hotel Transylvania 3 – Summer Vacation – 2018 movie

In 1897, Dracula (Adam Sandler) and his friends disguised as humans are travelling on a train to Budapest. Professor Abraham Van Helsing (Jim Gaffigan), a monster hunter, boards the train and unveils the monsters; the monsters escape by climbing through the roof and Dracula pushes his friends from the train for their safety. Van Helsing has a special interest in destroying Dracula, but is constantly outsmarted by him.

In the present day, some time after the events of the previous film, Dracula is running his hotel business smoothly with his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) and son-in-law Johnny (Andy Samberg). However, Drac is depressed by the fact that since his wife’s death, he’s lonely despite attempts to meet someone. Misinterpreting this as stress from overwork, Mavis books a cruise so they can all take a break and spend more time together as a family. The next day, Dracula, Mavis, Johnny, Dennis (Asher Blinkoff), Vlad (Mel Brooks), and the hotel guests board a cruise ship called the Legacy. Dracula sees the ship’s human captain, Ericka (Kathryn Hahn), and immediately falls for her, something that he thought was impossible as he had already “zinged” before.

Ericka goes to a secret room on the lower decks where she meets Abraham Van Helsing, who is revealed to be her great-grandfather and is almost completely mechanized to avoid death. Van Helsing has plans to eliminate all the monsters in the cruise upon its arrival at the lost city of Atlantis using an Instrument of Destruction that could be found in Atlantis’s ruins. Van Helsing makes Ericka promise to not assassinate Dracula beforehand, but she repeatedly attempts to do so anyway, albeit unsuccessfully, much to her frustration. After failing to kill Dracula at an underwater volcano, Ericka loudly moans about being unable to get him. Dracula’s friends hear this, and, thinking that Ericka likes him, inform Dracula about what they heard. Dracula nervously asks Ericka out on a date, and she accepts since she sees this as another chance to kill the vampire. However, as they dine on a deserted island, Ericka begins to reciprocate Drac’s feelings after they learn about each other’s pasts.

Mavis finds out Dracula is interested in Ericka and becomes suspicious of Ericka’s motives. The cruise ship reaches Atlantis which has been converted into a casino; Dracula decides to tell Mavis the truth about Ericka but gets distracted seeing Ericka going into a crypt below the city. Drac follows her, with Mavis not far behind, and learns that Ericka is after a “family heirloom”. With Dracula’s help, she gets past the numerous booby traps around the object and escapes. Mavis arrives and confronts them, and Dracula confesses that he “zinged” with Ericka, to Mavis’s surprise and confusion. After Ericka is told what a “zing” is, she rejects Dracula’s romantic feelings, saying she can’t be with a monster, leaving Dracula heartbroken.

A depressed Ericka gives Van Helsing the object–revealed to be the Instrument of Destruction–and he proceeds to set a trap for the monsters at a dance party. Noticing that Dracula is still upset, Mavis, after some advice from Johnny, tells her father to talk to Ericka, admitting that she was really just afraid of him leaving her, which Drac allays. Suddenly, Van Helsing shows up and pushes away the DJ, and a heartbroken Ericka is forced to reveal that she is his great-granddaughter. Van Helsing unveils the Instrument of Destruction, a case for a music note sheet, and plays a song that drives a friendly Kraken (Joe Jonas) that lives near the island to attack the monsters. Ericka saves Dracula from the Kraken and pleads with her great-grandfather to stop the destruction, confessing to Drac that she fell for him as well, which infuriates Van Helsing and causes him to attack them both.

In order to pacify the Kraken, Johnny opens up a portable DJ kit, and starts playing positive songs to beat Van Helsing’s song. Upon playing the Macarena, the Kraken is relaxed and happy for good; Van Helsing is unable to counter the song as everyone begins to dance, including the music sheet which shreds itself to pieces in the process. Van Helsing also ends up dancing and accidentally slips and falls but is saved by Dracula. Touched by this act of kindness, Van Helsing apologizes and gives everyone a full refund for the cruise before sending them back.

Back at Hotel Transylvania, Dracula proposes to Ericka, who agrees to marry him.
