Product Description

Halloween is Shrek’s favorite holiday – but instead of the usual tricks or treats, Shrek ups the ante and challenges the gang to spend the night telling scary stories.  The last one to be scared Shrekless wins.   Scared Shrekless features the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas. The DVD includes a Shrek-ed out parody of Michael Jackson’s epic music video “Thriller.” 

Amazon.com

Scared Shrekless is a Halloween special that skews more adult in humor, offering viewers three short, "scary" stories as told by Gingy, Donkey, Puss in Boots, and Shrek. On Halloween night, Shrek and friends hold a contest of wits to find the King of Halloween--the one who is the bravest and can survive the longest in Lord Farquaad's abandoned castle. The final story, which will be lost on younger audiences, parodies the 1973 film The Exorcist, complete with head-spinning and projectile vomiting. This movie also comes with several special features, the most exciting of which is a parody of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video. In the styling of a typical end-of-a-Shrek-movie musical number, Donkey, Fiona, Puss in Boots, and company perform an enjoyable homage to the King of Pop. Scared Shrekless has its moments but it does lack some of the wit that made the original Shrek movies so great. Overall, this movie is amusing but is best suited for an older audience. --Alex Westrom

I guess when it comes to holiday programming, you could say that I'm fairly old fashioned. The classics that I grew up with when there weren't as many television options became yearly traditions--by familiarity, if not always quality. Today, with hundreds of stations to select from, kids can be more choosy. And yet, I'm still rarely blown away by the options presented. When Dreamworks, therefore, adopted two of its film franchises into new Halloween spectaculars--I was a bit skeptical. The original "Shrek" was one of my all time beloved movies although the series was beginning to show wear, while "Monsters vs Aliens" may have had its moments but it wasn't a particular favorite of mine. I was, therefore, pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed these two brief specials. "Scared Shrekless" and "Monsters vs Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins From Outer Space" can be purchased individually, but certainly qualify as a better deal in a combination pack if you want both. Note: These aired as 30 minutes specials with commercials--so approximate running times are about 22 minutes each if that makes a difference in your buying choice.

In "Scared Shrekless," the ogre family and their friends are enjoying Shrek's favorite holiday--you guessed it, Halloween! A wager is set forth in which everyone will tell a creepy tale and the last to get scared wins! Then the individual narratives unfold (kind of like a Simpson's Treehouse of Terrors) and classic horror stories get a decidedly unique spin through the land of fairy tales. The program uses the familiar characters to excellent affect and (despite the absence of Eddie Murphy) these two-dimensional creations display remarkable life. The horror parodies are spot-on (I won't spoil anything here) and hilarious.

I read previous reviews and was concerned about Eddie Murphy not being the voice of Donkey. I got the DVD anyway and prepared myself for the worst. But I couldn't even tell the difference! The casting director was smart and hired a guy who does spot-on impressions. That said, I think Eddie Murphy is a much better singer, but this guy still sounded like Donkey.

Also, I can see how the movie would be scary for some little kids, especially the last story, but my 4yr old handled it fine.

I absolutely loved the Thriller number.

My boys are long-time Shrek fans. They own and love every movie. So when we saw this one on a Target shelf, we had to get! They watched it in the car on the way home, and complained that it was kind of scary. I watched it with them a couple of days later, and I can see why they thought it was scary. It is well made and entertaining enough, but beware, it is a bit scary for young kids.

I love Shrek and I was so sad to hear they were going to end the series at Shrek Forever After rather than with 5 movies (like originally planned). I bought the short Shrek The Halls Christmas movie and loved it. I really hope they keep Shrek alive, even if it is with shorts like this. Scared Shrekless isn't completely horrible, but I'm very disappointed in it. I paid $10 for a slopped together Halloween special. At best, this should be a $5 DVD.

I will say this, Scared Shrekless isn't for very young or sensitive children. There is no axe murders or anything like that, but there is a lot of material that I myself believe would scare a younger child. As one reviewer said the "Shreckcorist" part of the cartoon was weird and creepy, to a child I can only imagine what it could seem like. The little information booth in Dulop castle has the puppets singing things like "We'll chop off your head then laugh when you're dead" and has a burning priest/judge puppet. If you think you kids can handle it, I suggest watching it with them and gauge their reactions.

There really is no target age for this. Too scary for young kids, to short and goofy for the older ones. It just lacks the magic of Shrek.

On the upside, there are a lot of parts that made me laugh. I enjoyed it to some extent. It wasn't a complete loss and I'm just thankful Shrek is staying alive. However, I felt the need to caution parents for their children's sakes and inform you that it just isn't worth the money. I'd download it or watch it on Netflix (if they have it) anything to keep from being robbed of $10.
