really dislike this movie

They change the whole back storie and animation :/.. They take out a lot of the good characters and change all the characters voices.. Watch monster high all day ever day because it is my daughters favorite show but I dislike watching this one...To much change the original movies were just fine..

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

In this movie, creativity is valued; zombies are funny; electricity becomes a weapon; and Mattel has an opportunity to sell a whole new inventory of "electrified" versions of their popular dolls. Monster High: Electrified has an easy-to-follow story; the characters stay true to the personalities that have developed over the years, and there's enough humor and cartoon action to keep everything moving. As usual, a few positive messages are included (the joy of creativity, reaching for goals, the value of teamwork). And it's a plus to find out that this 15th movie has a brief introduction to the creation of Monster High (which was the basis of Welcome to Monster High). It gives just enough of the backstory to help new viewers enter the world of ghoulish friends and enemies. Though the story focuses on the creation of a new salon, not too much attention is paid to fashion, hair, or makeup; it's simply the vehicle that powers the plot. This should appeal to old fans and make some new ones, too.
