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.

Shrek and his family and friends gather together to celebrate Shrek's favorite holiday: Halloween. When an argument erupts between Shrek and some of his friends, a wager is made to see who can tell the scariest story of them all. Shrek agrees to the deal, but only if the competition is held at a place he selects. Everyone agrees and Shrek, Donkey, Gingy, Puss, the Three Pigs, the Wolf, and Pinnochio set forth to the storytelling place: the abandoned city and castle of Duloc. One by one the friends tell a spooky story, but not all remain until the end as those who are frightened leave. Gingy tells a story about zombie gingerbread people, Donkey and Puss tell a competing overlapping tales in an attempt to outdo and outfrighten each other, and Shrek tells a story of a possessed little boy. The short is mildly frightening for younger children who will, nonetheless, enjoy this special just for the Shrek characters. Older children will probably enjoy SCARED SHREKLESS the most, but there are plenty of allusions and cultural references that will elude most kids, but that adults will find amusing. I enjoyed this short. If the Shrek universe is to continue to expand with shorts like these, I hope they are all as high quality.

SCARD SHREKLESS also includes a short parody of Michael Jackson's Thriller entitled "Thriller Night" as well as a music video with Antonio Banderas and Puss of "These Boots Are Made for Walking". There are also trailers for the movies PUSS IN BOOTS, KUNG FU PANDA 2, and several other animated Dreamworks projects.
