Note: 'new' refers to the cast change of voice actors on some of the characters.
That said, we turn to Music of the Vampire. It's really unlike any other Scooby movie ever made but at the same time it's remarkably familiar. I really enjoyed watching it. Sure, not all the songs are amazing but it's a whole lot of fun and there are at least 3 genuinely wonderful musical numbers in the film. It's a fun little mystery with the voice cast at the top of their games and singing(!) except for Mindy Cohn. All in all, I am very pleased with this new flick and I wouldn't be opposed to another musical installment of Scooby and the Gang!
Unfortunately, this latest release was sad. Scoobydoo does not need showtunes. Repeat NO SHOWTUNES, NO MUSICAL NUMBERS (by the gang)
Having rock & roll vampire girls is one thing. Having a new Rock & Roll theme song was great. But, having the Mystery gang sing is not. Especially because most cannot sing in character.
My youngest wanted to fast forward through the musical numbers!
And the writing was sad - the whole flying shoes was left completely unfinished.
Where were the chase scenes in and out through doors? When were Scooby and Shaggy bait to catch the monster? Where was Fred's failed trap? Where were the scooby snack bribes? Had the writers ever seen the original series?
Also, Amazon - your summary of the movie is wrong. This has nothing to do with Daphne in a Vampire movie.
A proper summary:
The Mystery gang takes a vacation to a place of Velma's choosing. It is down in the bayou - NOTE: Vampires and the bayou do not go together! - Where they meet a friend of Velma's who is an heir of the famous vampire hunter Van Helsing. Van Helsing is an author of Vampire stores not doing so well, who follows around a carnival-like vampire show Vampire Palooza, also not attracting many visitors. Of course, there is a mystery to solve and the gang do their thing, mostly, and with showtune-like numbers, to meddle enough and solve it.
The new 3D effects in the drawing were interesting - but really Scoobydoo looked best in the late 60s! There is no need for the fancy cartooning. Go back to the original style. Though it was fairly easy to tell what was drawn and what was computer generated.
My recommendation: Enjoy it on Cartoon Network, but show the producers you want the original Scoobydoo Mysteries back and do not buy this video.
"Chill Out" had a few cute moments. "Goblin King" was great. "Samurai Ghost" was strange, but interesting. "AbraKadarbra Doo" wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. "Camp Scare" was surprisingly good. "Phantosaur" was terrible.
Now onto this 17th chapter. The first thing to be aware of is that this is NOT a defining film like "Pirates Ahoy" or "The Goblin King." For one thing, Fred is absurdly dumbed down. This just doesn't work seeing that he is the leader. Another thing is that they talk about this 'vacation staying a vacation.' I'm sorry, but this is crazy. We all know the formula. They always seem to be on vacation. But it never stays a vacation. It just is something we can't accept at this point.
The story is basically this. Scooby and the gang head down south and they run across what appears to be some kind of festival of vampires. By this, I mean people dressing up like vampires. There is one woman who is selling vampire charms. And one man who claims to be a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing is clearly upset because his books aren't selling so well. Maybe I shouldn't hold this against the film, but most people know that Van Helsing was just a fictional character created by Mr. Stoker.Read more ›
