I watched "Toy Story of Terror" during its run on the Disney Channel during the Halloween season with my grownup children, and with a 5- and 8-year old brother and sister foster kids. Needless to say, we all loved it, and the little ones wanted to watch it each time it was broadcast. Sure it was scary, but in a "Scooby-Do" kind of way, and that's the fun of it. I will be ordering at least two copies of "Toy Story of Terror," one for the kids and one for me. If you love the "Toy Story" gang, you'll love this one, too!
Sure, this is a great for Halloween watching, complete with a cheesy black-and-white Saturday drive-in style movie (love that puff of smoke!), but it’s also year round fun for Toy Story fans, as it could be thought of as an unofficial “sequel" to Toy Story. Many of the characters introduced in that film are here again, and they get more screen time, like Mr. Pricklepants, the self-appointed movie expert (you can almost see Marshall McLuhan making a cameo to contradict him, á la Annie Hall).
The 22 minutes focus mostly on Jessie, which is welcome. She’s a character with a lot of layers and audience empathy. Who among would want to be shut into a suitcase or box? The others characters are supportive in their various ways. One just wants to watch them do things together for as long as possible.
In this story, they find themselves at a creepy old motel with a manager hiding creepy secrets, but don’t worry about it being kid-friendly, it’s not Psycho, though nods to numerous suspense conventions abound. There’s a lot packed into this special.
The three Toy Story Toons included on the Blu-ray alone are worth having, since they in effect are follow-ups to the Toy Story films. Michael Keaton and Jodi Benson walk away with “Hawaiian Vacation,” Rex gets his time to shine in “Partysaurus Rex” (a stunner in high-def), and the characters have to grapple with their happy meal identities in “Small Fry.Read more ›
As a bonus, three Toy Story Toons are included, Hawaiian Vacation (6 min.), Small Fry (8 min.), and Partysaurus Rex (7 min.). These are great shorts and add some value to the purchase if you do not already have them.
Finally, included is a behind the scenes feature with the director giving a look at the day-to-day work to make a Toy Story short.
The 22 minute short is great as is, but Disney has put together a really terrific Blu-ray release with this title. There are the usual start-up trailers but you can go ahead and jump to a cute haunted house menu which looks to be pulled from the vampire movie the gang is watching in the trunk of the car, the feature with can be played with or without commercial breaks (more on those later,) and quite a few bonus features. For most people the Toy Story Toons will be the main draw here, including Hawaiian Vacation, Small Fry (love the surprising appearance of Jane Lynch as Neptuna,) and Partysaurus Rex. All three are great. There are three deleted scenes and explanation from the editor about what they are and why they got cut. They are rough line drawings with temp voices, but they give you a good idea about the scenes and some insight on the animation process. There's a behind the scenes called Team of Specialists which really gets into the new characters and what it's like at Pixar. There's the trailer for the special that was shown at D23 and three vintage toy commercials.Read more ›
