I grew up with Scooby Doo in the late 70's and the 80's. It is great to see Scooby Doo making a comeback in the 90's. The characters are still funny. I like it that they are not stuck in a 70's timewarp. The characters are grown up with careers. They wear 90's cloths and listen to 90's music. The music goes with the action in the movie. This is a great movie for anyone who has grown up watching Scooby Doo.
After years of finding nothing but crooks in masks, the gang gives up on ever finding any REAL ghosts. So, much like in the live-action movie (only this one came first), Mysteries, Inc. splits up. Shaggy and Scooby get jobs as customs agents, but are fired when they can't help themselves and eat all the contraband food. Velma opens her own Mystery book store, sorta reminiscent of what Ray did in Ghostbusters 2. And apparently Fred and Daphne couldn't pull apart from each other. Daphne became the star of her own investigative TV series, with Fred as her adoring Producer and one man crew.
As Daphne's Birthday approaches, she plans to start a special theme on her show, Haunted America! Daphne intends to search the country for REAL ghosts, starting in atmospheric New Orleans. As a birthday surprise, Fred gathers the old gang back together and Mysteries, Inc. is back in action! For a while they have no luck though. They are still finding nothing but men in masks. Until they run into a beautiful girl named Lena, who claims to live on a REAL haunted island. From there on, things get REALLY scary.
Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island is full of great laughs and scares, and a great story too, one that isn't dumbed down for little kids. The gang is totally updated, and yet Daphne still looks gorgeous! And for those of you who have always wanted to see some romance between Daph and Freddie, well, here you go! The first in a great new line of videos that every Scooby-Doo fan should enjoy, unless you're hung up on the masked criminal stuff. I for one am glad to see things go REAL for a change! And the Scooby-Doo gang has never been so well animated! Pick up a copy today! I can't wait to replace my VHS with the DVD!
Well, that said, this Scooby movie is quite arguably Scooby's greatest movie. To make sense of Scooby's long retirement, there is a flashback with Scooby and the gang solving yet another mystery. Some time passes, and the gang has went their seperate ways. Daphne and Fred have a television show and decide they want to see some real ghosts. Except for Fred, the voice casting is different. But they did a good job of finding voices that at least resembled the original voices. (If it's any comfort, the original voice cast would eventually reunite for the 5th and 6th movies.)
Moving on, the gang does get back together, and they head towards New Orleans in hopes of seeing some real ghosts. (2 of the 5 parties are of course reluctant. Guess which 2.) Down in Louisiana, they find some more cases of just 'bad guys in masks.' Later they meet Lena who flirts with Fred and offers to show them her employer's (Simone's) haunted house. They also meet Jaques who seems nice enough and the gardener who does not seem so nice. After Scooby fights with Simone's cats, Simone is understandably annoyed, but she agrees to let the gang in. Soon afterwards, we see some things that appear to indicate the presence of ghosts, but as any Scooby fan knows, there might be a rational explanation, and if so, what is the motive?Read more ›
Also, it takes a fresh and exciting turn into the ghosts and the supernatural of New Orleans, when the team comes back to try and pursue real ghosts/monsters for Daphne's TV show, they run into a pretty young thing that strikes up interest in Fred (voiced by Tara Charendoff-Strong, who plays Gwen in the two "Sabrina" movies), who says that her boss's mansion is haunted and invites them over to investigate, which leads into unexpecting and scary stuff.
What makes this movie and its sequels exciting is their turn into supernatural/ghosts that is real, not people in suits (some people and kids will be disappointed by this). Also, the animation is more bold and colorful. Lastly and mostly, the actors who voice them breathe fresh life and brings them from the '70s into the '90s-2000's.
What I can say about this is that demanding Scooby-Doo fans can stay away, if they expect bad guys in suits and masks. If fans of it expect a plot twist and REAL scary stuff, then this is for you.
Not rated, contains some animated violence and subject matter that may be too much for small fry.
