Brining Up the Rear of the DTV Scooby Movies

First off - we love Scooby Doo. My first grader carries a Scooby backpack to school every day and we’ve seen all of the direct to video movies. This is one of the worst. Chaotic plot where the characters don’t even seem like themselves, not scary and not funny. Also should be noted - daphne is “cursed” by becoming fat! It’s a running joke and terrible message. Skip this one.

Not really scary. Just a mediocre movie.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (1 ):

There are lots of levels of funny in this Scooby-Doo adventure. Audiences will appreciate the villagers who pride themselves on their endangered torch factory ("Our burning pieces of wood are second to none!") and the irreverent parodies of classic gothic characters (hunchbacked assistant, forbidding housekeeper, Dr. von Dinklestein's "monster"). Assorted spooky scares (fires, explosions, chases, fights) alternate with some psychological comedy-drama as one by one the gang members become victims of the curse. Too many endings and one ludicrous reveal in the final moments take the story over the top, but young Scooby-Doo fans and even some grown-ups who watch with them should be entertained by this offering (the 22nd in the Scooby-Doo direct-to-DVD catalogue).
