Note: 'new' refers to the cast change of voice actors on some of the characters.
And she perked right up. Now she's 5 and loves the story lines. We saw this one a year or so ago but didn't buy it. Mistake! It aired on Cartoon Network today. As soon as it ended she asked to restart it. Of course, i couldn't do that. I don't know which one of us was happier when I found it on Amazon. The price was great, one click purchase and Presto - we restarted the movie!
There's a lot of songs in this movie, but it's not so overdone that it feels like a musical. Daphne has been selected to be the Vampire's Bride and the gang is trying to stop the swamp wedding. The vampire and narrator characters are wonderful. The "Cirq-de-Solei like" show troop gives the movie a modern twist on an ancient story line.
I recommend without hesitation to all Scooby fans. Young and old(er) alike.
Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!
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!
"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 ›
Make the vampire real, the star of the show, and delete most of the songs. Those things alone could have made this movie awesome enough to stand up next to Zombie Island and Witch's Ghost. Actually, bringing back the Hex Girls would have been an improvement over the actors and been in cannon for a brief spot since they love vampires and vampires have a thing for a trio of brides.

My two boys (5 and 3) are really into Scooby Doo. They love this move and we have watched it many times. I would say it is typical Scooby Doo and not too scary (it is rated G). Read morePublished 3 months ago by myrsime
