Good value for 2 movies
on February 10, 2013
I was pleaseantly surprised by the fact that this DVD includes two features....Friday Night Frights, and Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love??. Mattel could have easily released them seperately and charged more but they chose to put them together which I think is pretty cool. Both movies come on one disc which I think makes it easier for viewing since you don't have to change it out to watch one feature or the other. I will give a small synopsis of each movie (I don't want to give too much away).
In Friday Night Frights we see the "ghouls" learning the power of being true to (and believing in) yourself when they take on the task of playing on the Monster High "scream" team in the Skulltimate Roller Maze after the guys on the team get hurt. At first the girls face opposition (tradition states only boys can play) but they never give up and eventually win the respect and support of their schoolmates and even their rivals. I like the message of this dvd .... it is totally girl power. It tells girls they can do anything and should not give in to peer pressure.
Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love is a Valentines special. It is Draculauras sweet 1600 and the girls are trying to throw her a fangtastic party....unfortunately there are a few glitches. An old flame from Draculauras past (a vampire named Valentine) and Toralei do everything in their power to cause chaos. The underlying issue is about the power of true love, and having realistic expectations about things.
Both of these movies are really cute....although personally I like Friday Night Frights a little better due to the positive messages it sends girls. Also I think Abbey steals the show with her funny jokes thrown in throughout both movies. These are movies that adults can enjoy with their kids as well. This is a good value for the money and much better then most of the kids shows out there.
