The story opens in a big old house in the past, just 75 years ago vs. 300 years, and sets up the whole story for present day Halloween in a small town. Instead of three witches who are brought back to life by a candle, it's a warlock brought back to life by a mirror. Instead of sucking the life out of children, the warlock needs the souls of 5 puppies (not as scary as it sounds). People are turned into little talking animals, just like Hocus Pocus, and the warlock wanders the streets filled with trick-or-treaters searching for his stolen spell book (sound familiar). All of the town's clueless parents are at the town Halloween dance and don't believe the children when they come looking for help. Seriously, I think they must have used the same script and just replaced the teenaged children with this younger group (more akin to the Goonies clan) and the Buddies. The children seem to be the main characters is this movie, with the Buddies as an aside. I really expected this movie to be more centered around the puppies.Read more ›
For those who have watched the previous "Buddies" films (Note: buddies are the children of Buddy the Golden Retriever, the star of the "Air Bud" films of the '90s), the good news for fans who enjoyed the more involving storyline with the last year's film "The Search for Santa Paws", co-writer and director Robert Vince and co-writer Anna McRoberts continue with the same formula where the film is not all about the buddies but bringing back the "Air Bud" style of featuring the story around the human characters.
"Spooky Buddies" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1) and I have to say that the film looks awesome on Blu-ray. A lot of outdoor shots with sunlight and many costumes of various colors, it definitely lends to the vibrant colors of the film. But also during Halloween night, the black levels are nice and deep but for the most part, detail of the costumes and the closeup of the dogs look great!
So, there is a good amount of detail this time around and I didn't detect any artifacts, combing, banding or any significant problems while watching the film. Another quality Disney presentation on Blu-ray.
AUDIO & SUBTITLES:
"Spooky Buddies" is a dialogue-driven film and the dialogue is crystal clear as its coming through the center and front channels. But one will notice with this latest film is how much of the music plays a big part, especially as it is utilized in the surround channels. A pretty solid soundtrack for this film courtesy of Brahm Wenger and also you get a pretty groovy cover of "Monster Mash" during the Halloween party segment of the film.
Subtitles are presented in English SDH, Spanish and French.Read more ›

Terrible. Too scary for the target age range and too focused on serious stuff like "stealing souls" and one of the main dog characters eating cute puppies. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
