May Actually Be Scooby's Best Movie!,
This review is from: Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Anyone who knows me, knows that I love King Diamond's records. I loved "Abigail," "Them," "Conspiracy," and "In the Shadows." I thought "Time" was alright, and I felt "Into the Unknown" had its moments. Not knowing what to expect, I bought his "Dead Again," and was shocked at the awesome return to form. I always liked the Scooby series. And I really liked "Scooby Doo on Zombie Island." I thought "The Witch's Ghost" was pretty good. But I was a little disappointed with "The Alien Invaders" and "The Cyber Chase." I thought the live movie was flat out terrible. Not knowing what to expect, I bought this tape.RED LIGHT ALERT! Ah...this may actually be Scooby's best movie! First, it was a charming bonus to get the original voice cast back! 2nd, we are presented with an awesome return to the Scooby Doo formula. In a normal situation, we are presented with the possibility of the supernatural. We also see the gang in Australia. We also get to see how their seeming vacation turns into yet another mystery! The original cast seems to have all their wonderful chemistry back. Fred's calm attitude; Daphne's kind, but unaware character; Velmah's sassy charm; and Shaggy and Scooby's constant fear and appetite. We also get to see the Hex girls again. The misleads are well placed; secondary characters like Jasper give us some comical moments; and we are given time and clues to figure out the mystery before it is revealed. I don't want to chance ruining it for you, but I will say, EVEN if like me you were disappointed by the recent movies 'Alien Invaders,' 'Cyber Chase,' and the terrible live movie, DO NOt, REPEAT DO NOT overlook this gem. It may actually be Scooby Doo's best movie!
