- scoob fan
OH YEAH!the monsters are real baby!what can I say this video is great.For ears i grew tired of watching the old series.It was so predictible because the monster was only some nut job in a halloween costume.SPOILERS!!!!!!might be too scary for the kiddies under 5 so parents beware.the zombies are sooo creepy.Fans will eat this up!If you are under 5 then stick with the original scooby series,or watch the late 80's movies....more info
- It was a good movie!
Even though there were new people doing the voices, they pretty much sounded the same. I've been wanting to see this movie ever since it came out! It's my favorite Scooby Doo movie!...more info
- Sccoby Doo Rules
Scooby Doo is the best cartoon character in the world.I have seen every one of his movies.And shows....more info
- TOO SCARY FOR CHILDREN
My 3-year old son was so scared when he watched this video that I had to turn it off. He normally loves Scooby Doo, but when the zombies attacked AND FRED YANKED THE HEAD OFF A ZOMBIE, it was way too scary for him. This is not in the true tradition of Scooby Doo. Scooby and the gang unmasks villians and thieves, etc., but this and the other one, Witch's Ghost, did not depict people dressed up as bad guys, but true supernatural occurances. A friend's daughter also watched this and was scared....more info
Whoever decided to let the scooby gang face real "monsters" deserves a raise!The original show didn't hold my interest after I understood the pattern. (Another person dressing up in a halloween costume hoping to scare everyone away so he could find the hidden gold.)I've seen some bad reviews here based on the fact that its not appropriate for children. All I can say is, if your child enjoys "The Wizard Of Oz", they will enjoy this as well. Now I want to see the ghost witch!...more info
- Scobby Doo Fan
A must have movie for any Scooby Doo fan. I grew up watching him and now years later have began watching him again....more info
- Please make it PG-13
This is definitely Scary. For young children this movie is way too scary and my kids don't freak to easily.
I can see how others like it. But becareful how you intriduce it to your child.
- The best Scooby Doo yet!
If you're a long time fan of Scooby Doo, like I am, you'll love Zombie Island. I haven't seen Scooby in about 15 years and we recently bought a couple tapes for our kids. The re-runs of the old shows are great, but Zombie Island is definately the best Scooby I have ever seen. Fun for the whole family and you can never watch it enough. And hey, did somebody say something about real ghosts? It's a sad day if you miss this one!...more info
- Scooby and the gang encounter real zombies, no masked put on
Ever since I was a toddler, Scooby Doo has always been one of my favorite cartoons to watch. "Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island" is the first Scooby Doo movie I saw and I was pretty satisfied with it. Scooby-Doo and the gang are up to some of their usual things, and even taking on some new challenges. Scooby-Doo and Shaggy still eat every chance they get, the gang still drives the Mystery Machine, and they're still hunting ghosts no matter how scared Scooby or Shaggy get at the site of seeing a ghost.
Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Daphne, Fred, and Velma all travel to a woman's house after she claims she lives in a real haunted house. They all soon find out that she's right, her house is haunted. Dead ghosts arise and form themselves into zombies. The biggest difference about "Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island" when compared to the cartoon series is that in this movie, the zombies are real, no masks this time around, and I thought that that was a nice twist.
"Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island" is great for anyone who likes watching Scooby-Doo, but especially for kids. Its mystery is more mysterious than ever, it's entertaining, and it's also funny at times such as the way Scooby says "Cats" and then chases them around all over the place....more info
- a disgrace to the scooby pedigree
this movie takes a departure from the orginal series, and not a welcome one at that. The monsters were all orginally humans who were plotting something, and dressed up to scare everyone away. Corny ? yes but it was good. There are real monsters in this one and it is much more scary. The only redeeming value: No Scrappy....more info
- scooby dooby do
i grew up watching scooby and i still love it . this movie was great it was actually scary.it mayhave tampered with the clasic series a liite bit but i still like it.it should be noted thought hat scooby fans under 7 might be frigtend....more info
- SCOOBY IS STILL COOL AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
I must admit that the first time I watched Zombie Island it was with low expectations. I am 34 years old and like most people my age we grew up watching Scooby Doo on Saturday morning.
My wife and I first purchased the "classic" Scooby Doo series for our 3 year old son. He really enjoys watching them over and over and over again!! I must also admit that my wife and I also enjoy the classic episodes.
We purchased Zombie Island about a month ago and he likes it as much or more than the classics.
I was skeptical at first as I previously stated. How could a new version of Scooby Doo measure up to the classic ones?? Especially without the original voices and annimation..
Zombie Island does justice to the original series. The characters, although very 90s' are still very much the same as the ones in the classics. They actually wear different outfits-with the exception of Shaggy (Velma does have different shoes and socks!) The Mystery Machine is updated with computers ect. Even the Scooby Doo song is done in a very 90s' way.
Not to mention, the animation is much better in Zombie Island than the classics.
A true example of "the more things change-the more they stay the same" True, Scooby Doo is "updated" but it hasn't "changed"
Scooby Doo Zombie Island should appeal kids as well as adults who grew up watching the classics....more info
- My daughter loves it...
Like most Scooby movies my daughter was glued to this one. I myself didn't pay that much attention to it but if my daughter was able to sit still as long as she did then I know it's a good one for the little ones. My daughter has many movies & Scooby is one of the only ones that will hold her attention for very long. Recommended for the little ones for sure....more info
- Scooby's Ultimate Movie, But Beware.
For some time Scooby Doo was all but retired and made a brief comeback with "Laughalympics." In 1998, the original Scooby Doo gang would reunite to make this phenomenal movie. But do beware. PG 13 would probably be a more appropriate rating for this movie. It goes to levels Scooby Doo never before went. And while well done, it would probably be a good idea for parents to screen it first and then decide if it is appropriate for children. Well, that said, this Scooby movie is quite arguably Scooby's greatest movie. To make sense of Scooby's long retirement, there is a flashback with Scooby and the gang solving yet another mystery. Some time passes, and the gang has went their seperate ways. Daphne and Fred have a television show and decide they want to see some real ghosts. Except for Fred, the voice casting is different. But they did a good job of finding voices that at least resembled the original voices. (If it's any comfort, the original voice cast would eventually reunite for the 5th and 6th movies.) Moving on, the gang does get back together, and they head towards New Orleans in hopes of seeing some real ghosts. (2 of the 5 parties are of course reluctant. Guess which 2.) Down in Louisiana, they find some more cases of just 'bad guys in masks.' Later they meet Lena who flirts with Fred and offers to show them her employer's (Simone's) haunted house. They also meet Jaques who seems nice enough and the gardener who does not seem so nice. After Scooby fights with Simone's cats, Simone is understandably annoyed, but she agrees to let the gang in. Soon afterwards, we see some things that appear to indicate the presence of ghosts, but as any Scooby fan knows, there might be a rational explanation, and if so, what is the motive? Scooby and Shaggy offer some comical moments with their too healthy appetities. Soon afterwards, clues start appearing that would make us suspect that some real ghosts are involved, but there is some room for doubt. One thing about this Scooby movie is that the expansion from 30 minutes to 90 or so is a good one. It gives us time to remeet the gang, and time to wonder if the ghosts are real or not, and enjoy some welcome suspense as well. Of all Scooby's adventures, this is one of the LEAST contrived and predictable. Another thing you will notice in this Scooby movie is a surprisingly intense soundtrack. (And I had NO problem whatsoever with that!) In a typical Scooby fashion, the gang gets separated and the horror unfolds. This is one ending I won't give away. But I will say true horror unfolds as we find that surprises shock us for a moment, but then make sense upon discovery. The explosion of misleads enables us to say: "Oh! No wonder!" In all honesty, this movie is more frightening than a lot of so called horror on the market. And perhaps the most frightening moment in this movie is when the 'villain' explains the events that preceeded that of the movie. Good writers seem to know that recognition is often the most horror filled aspect of a story. Again, I consider this a strong contender for Scooby's greatest movie, but do be warned. It may very well be too much for young children. ...more info
- ALERT!!!!!!!! this isn't for young children!!!!
this is not a movie for kids! it has real monsters (i know the box tells you that but the art of the film is very grapic and the story is very much ment for adults) so be sure you watch this movie before you show it to kids.
now as for the movie it's self it really isn't very good and isn't part of the scooby-doo series as far as i see it!!! just plain not good!!!!!!!!...more info
- Great movie!!!!!!!!!!!
This movie is great!!!!!!!!!! When I first watched I thought it matched the Friday the 13th series and I still do. This movie is ok for kids 7 and up to watch but anyone who watches this movie might get scared if they are not 7 or over. ...more info
- is this really appropriate for kids?
this is a version of the old cartoon.di you know that casey kason,the top 40 guy,did shaggys voice?its good.dont get me wrong,but for a kids movie theres an awful lot of subtle drug and sex humor.the old cartoon was littered with it.the scooby doo gang hasnt been together in a long time due to personal differences.the guy at zombie island feigns a mystery to bring them together again.however,theres more afoot than anyone realizes.i think smaller kids will like it and not understand about the negativities.kids under 10 will probaly catchon some.13 will definately know.its the best scooby doo production ive ever seen.i think just anyone can like this one.even some adults say thay thought it was humorous.daffanyis a really emotional yet rather attractive damzellee in distress.that means shes the hot chick in this movie.it is very much consistent with the old cartoon.shaggy is still a hippie with a talking dog with a speech impediment.the main dude is still stuck on himself.daffney always ends up in trouble all the time.belma is a nerdy girl.ya see?the shaggy character was done quite well and is very belivable as the new version of the old shagster.i had an idea just now!austin powers meets scooby doo!this could be quite good.this isnt the lame hollywood rip off film paid for by disney it sounds like.its good and you should buy it for your kids!...more info
- A Feature for Adults Who Remember the Original Series.
THE ZOMBIES, DEMONS, VOODO, AND WEREWOLF ARE REAL AND WITH THE EXCELLENT SKILL OF ANIMATORS ARE QUITE GRUESOME! This is a great movie for adults who liked the series, but really not for children unless an adult is present. The musical scores and gags are great, the updated careers of the gang are interesting, and the voices and animation are top notch, too. I really enjoyed this video, but can not stress enough that it is Not For Young Children...more info
- Welcome back Scooby-Doo
I've been watching Scooby-Doo for more than 20 years, it's one of my favorite cartoon shows, when it was really a good show, before that stupid Scrappy came into the show.
Anyway, the Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island is one of my favorite movies. When they decide to get back the Scooby show again and the movies, this was the first one, back in 1999. Like I said, for me is the best one. I like the new look on the characters, the story, everything.
If I were going to end the Scooby-Doo show (and the movies) forever, this should have been the last movie or last episode of the show. I mean, it's been a couple of years since the gang were split, and they reunite for like a one last mystery and the cool thing is that this time, the monsters are real. Some people didn't like that, but that's the cool part of the movie.
Besides all that, the animation is very cool, like watching some anime movie, the colors area great, the music, everything, it's just Scooby-Doo....more info
- Again, Again
My 3-year old loves Scooby Doo and I was a fan years and years ago. After watching this movie, I was the one saying, "Again, again". He enjoyed it, too. It was good to see real ghouls this time which also kept the gang guessing. It was also good to see Scooby actually having canine traits. Dog, where? You'll have to see it! I don't want to give it away....more info
- Where's the mask?
This movie is not at all what I was expecting from Scooby Doo. My son and I love Scooby and watch everything from the television shows to all of his movies. This one is different because the zombies and cat monsters are real--no masks with bad guys under them! Great, that's all I need. I have a hard enough time convincing my son that monsters aren't real. In the other Scooby Doo shows, this is reinforced, but not in this one. I was disappointed that the box didn't have a warning to keep me from buying such a horrible show. I would NOT recommend....more info
- Not for young children........alligators eat innocent people.........
in a flashback sequence. The cat people are truly frightening, and I will NOT let my children see this one. They were disappointed when we had to stop the DVD. I'm glad I didn't waste any money buying it. I can see it being thrilling for tweens and up - it's a low-key horror movie for that age - but it's not the Scooby Doo that I remember and want my children to enjoy....more info
- Too Scary!!!!
I grew up watching the old Scooby cartoons on TV, and my 5-year old son now loves the cartoons and movies too. I have purchased several of the movies for him, and most of them have been fine, but this one is too scary for his age group. There are dead people rising from graveyards and walking around scaring people. Too dark and evil for me--I gave it away. Choose something less scary if you have younger children (age 3 to 10)....more info
- Not quite the same ole Scooby Doo, and very scary!
My 2+ year old daughter LOVES Scooby Doo (as do I; we have enjoyed several of the "Classics" also purchased from Amazon). However, we BOTH found *this* Scooby to be very scary ... PLUS the voices of most characters are *new*.. Shaggy just isn't the same without Casey Kasem at the helm. I say stick to the old Classics....more info
- GIVE IT A REST!!!!
Im actually 17 years old,but I changed my e-mail adress. For all the parents out there afraid the kids will be afraid I say shut up. One parent said not for kids under 10.10? Fifth grade? Man. This has got to be the best scooby movie in a long time! To make it better, it was real monsters. I know the great thing about the old series was that the monsters were fake,but it got corny and somewhat stupid after a while. I began to realize that there was no point in solving the mystery if the monsters were just people in masks.They could'nt do any real harm. Now these zombies can actually KILL YOU. I agree dont let kids under 3 watch it,but if they are 7 and over, give it a chance. They're more mature than you know. OVERALL, GREAT FILM !!!!11...more info
- Breathes fresh life into the '70s TV show
The first of four new Scooby Doo movies is better than the '70s TV show. I'm a fan of them for quite some time, and it was quite a pleasant surprise to see them use new people to voice the ghost-chasing crew. (Don't kid me, I liked the voices for the show also.)
Also, it takes a fresh and exciting turn into the ghosts and the supernatural of New Orleans, when the team comes back to try and pursue real ghosts/monsters for Daphne's TV show, they run into a pretty young thing that strikes up interest in Fred (voiced by Tara Charendoff-Strong, who plays Gwen in the two "Sabrina" movies), who says that her boss's mansion is haunted and invites them over to investigate, which leads into unexpecting and scary stuff.
What makes this movie and its sequels exciting is their turn into supernatural/ghosts that is real, not people in suits (some people and kids will be disappointed by this). Also, the animation is more bold and colorful. Lastly and mostly, the actors who voice them breathe fresh life and brings them from the '70s into the '90s-2000's.
What I can say about this is that demanding Scooby-Doo fans can stay away, if they expect bad guys in suits and masks. If fans of it expect a plot twist and REAL scary stuff, then this is for you.
Not rated, contains some animated violence and subject matter that may be too much for small fry....more info
- Watch out, parents!
This is not the Scooby you grew up with where the gang always proved to themselves (and their viewers) that monsters were never real and you didn't need to be scared. I loved being just a little scared as a child because I knew, in the end, the gang would come through and show that the monsters were just silly bad guys trying to scare everyone. As a parent, this was a message I liked my little ones to get. I could always say, "See? There are no real monsters or ghosts. It was just a sneaky bad guy who is going to jail." This is a great lesson for impressionable minds. Leave it to modern "advances" to add real ghosts and zombies to this formula! It really confused my kids who kept waiting for the bad guys to get arrested and proven to be fake. That message is obliterated in this movie. I am not a fanatic but this isn't the message I want for my small children and isn't that Scooby's real audience?...more info
- Scooby Doo on Zombie Island : Not for kids
Great, now they've ruined another great show. The point in the classics was to find out who the fake monsters were. If your raising your kids with Jewish or Christian values don't get this one. Lots of occultic stuff here....more info
- Far Fetched
Just like in the 70s and 80s, the producers of Scooby Doo made a movie completely out of Mystery Inc.'s catagory. Though called the most realistic of the fictional Scooby movies, it doesn't make up for the poor voice and mediocre animation. The highlight of this film is the music, though. The soundtrack combines rock and classic scores together. Another good thing is the interesting twist at the end of the movie. But sadly, the good things of this movie cannot help this poor quality film enough to make it good....more info
- An Awesome Scooby Doo Video
I loved this movie, and thought it was one of the best Scooby Doo videos I've ever seen. There's action, laughs, and even some romance. I love it when there are a lot of hints of Daphne/Fred, and there are quite a few in this movie. The music is really good too. One of the great things about this movie is the characters aren't running around aimlessly, not that there is anything wrong with any of the Scooby Doo episodes (I loved them too). There is a real, exciting plot.
Summary: Mystery Inc. has seperated, and Daphne is a reporter. She is trying to find real ghosts for her new show. Fred reunites Mystery Inc. and they travel, solving mysteries and looking for real ghosts. A girl working at a market, Lena, overhears them talking about looking for ghosts and offers to bring them to Moonscar Island, where Simone, her employer's, house is being haunted. The gang goes and finds that there are zombies, cat creatures, and ghosts!...more info
- Very good; overall
This is a surprisingly good movie, far much better than its earlier movies and shows. This starts off with the Scooby Doo gang, looking for a interesting article for Daphne's talk show and the story has much twists and turns and the story has a happy ending. But I wouldn't recommend this movie for children under seven to eight years old, this movie has very scary parts in it....more info
- The best Scooby-Doo movie in the last 7 years....
After an absence of 7 years, Warner Brothers jumpstarted Scooby-Doo's career with a line of direct-to-home movies. "Scooby Doo on Zombie Island" was the first, and best of these movies.
The story starts with the Mystery Inc members living their own lives after they split up. Daphne, now a successful TV show host, is hosting a new show featuring haunted houses of America. Fred, as her producer, uses this as an opportunity to bring the gang back together. Shaggy and Scooby, fired from their recent post as airport security guards, and Velma, the owner of a mystery bookstore, agree. Their first show segment takes them to New Orleans where they meet Lena Dupree, a housemaid working at an estate on Moonscar Island. She claims that the house is haunted by the ghost of Morgan Moonscar, a pirate who terrorized the bayous a couple of centuries back. will they be able to solve the mystery? Will the ghost be real or just another guy in a costume?
The animation in this movie is superb and reminiscent of the new Johnny Quest series. The characters are updated, and the result is quite amazing. even the mystery machine is updated and looks quite cool now. I don't understand why Warner Brothers later decided to drop this animation style and revert back to the classic style, especially in the series :what's New Scooby-Doo". The animation in this movie is also quite scary so Scooby fans are in for a real treat! ...more info
- scoony-doo on zombie island
this is a great scooby-doo movie my 4 year old will seat and watch it over and over again...more info
- DOG? WHERE?
This review will ruin the mystery so do not read it if you don't want to know.
This was a really cool update of the classic Scooby Doo formula. The gang have new clothes, new jobs and new voices. The movie is self-aware but not to the point that it becomes really annoying. The animation is also much better and not so cheap looking. There are shadows, out of focus backgrounds and 3-dimensional shots. Also, the same background does not repeat itself over and over when Shaggy and Scooby are running.
The plot is about a haunted mansion in a Louisiana bayou and the Mystery Inc. effort to unravel it. But the gang have split up. Daphne Blake is a talk show host, Fred is her producer, Velma Dinkly is a bookstore owner and Shaggy and Scooby are...unemployed. They reunite to go on the road for Daphne's birthday. That is when they come across an opportunity to solve a REAL mystery. Much to the disappointment of Fred the zombies are real. There are no fake masks and no scams. I think this is very refreshing.
The new, re-vamped Scooby Doo franchise is full of potential and this movie along with, "Scooby Doo and the Witches Ghost" and "Scooby Doo and the Alien Invaders" uses that potential very well. If only they were longer. Just over 70 minutes ain't enough.
The DVD is in Dolby Surround and is in fullscreen....more info
- Fun to watch
My two children,age six and three, never get bored of this movie. I must admit, I enjoy viewing it with them. You don't have to be a big Scooby Doo fan to sit through this flick. It gets two thumbs up from my family....more info
- Bad movie for young kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Timothy Lee-you should be ashamed to let your 4 year old watch this movie over and over. This movie crosses many lines of cartoon and horror flick. Compared to the other Scooby movies, this is more graphic and not quite so much fun. It is fine for teens and up, but get real. This shouldn't be a movie called a 'family' movie, and you should be doing the responsible thing and knowing what is OK and what isn't for young children to watch. Your 4 year old relies on you to be his parent-so be one!...more info
- Lots of fun -- Know your kids!
My daughter's turning 3 in two weeks and loves it -- so, incidentally, do my 9-year old and I. I was concerned that it might be too intense for her, but with us sitting there with her and explaining "She's turning into a monster!" and "Oooh, here come the zombies!" she found it thrilling. Would some kids be scared? Sure. One size does not fit all. It's fun for (most) ages -- see it and use your own judgment....more info
- The Best Scooby-Doo I've Ever Seen!
Please don't read if you don't even want a hint of spoilers.
This movie was remarkable in that the gang finally had a true supernatural mystery with no fakes in it whatsoever. It was actually very funny in how Fred insisted there MUST be a fake somewhere! The updates to the characters were neat as well; it's still the same old gang, but we finally see some growth.
The story was very well written, the art was beautiful, and we very much enjoyed the soundtrack as well. It was a real adventure, and not just a 'catch the crook in the mask' caper. We watch it over and over....more info
- Entertaining video
I thought this movie was awesome. It was a little scarier than some of the others that unmask the bad guys in the end. My 10 year old gets a little spooked by it. But, who's to say that Scooby Doo is just for kids! I've been watching Scooby since I was a little kid. Some of the new ones are a little korny, but I really enjoyed this one. Maybe just preview it for yourself before your little ones watch it (which isn't a bad idea for most things that are out there for our kids to watch these days)....more info
- Better Than Much Horror On The Market
With only a few exceptions, I find many horror movies to be pure nonsense. They are implausible, often the story takes a back seat to blood and gore, and character development is often poor. "Scooby Doo On Zombie Island" seems to nail down an ideal pattern. The characters are well developed, the story is well constructed, and the misleads are well placed. Also, the solution to the mystery is not obvious, but a sharp observer can notice things along the way that point up to solving the mystery. Do the horror aspects pass plausibility? Yes, but instead of jumping way beyond the plausible line, it steps over it just enough to surprise you and put you in suspense. I call this an ideal horror movie because the scarey aspects are placed into the story well, and it is not the effects or graphics that can scare you, but the gradual unfolding of the situation. The soundtrack is also well placed. I highly suggest this video not only to Scooby Doo fans, but horror fans as well....more info
- Scary one...JUST PERFECT!
This one, I agree, kids under at least 5 shouldn't watch. Daphne and Fred put out a zombie head...it's a bit scary, ya know. But it's still perfect! Perfect soundtrack, and story, and animation also is very good!!

- Scooby-Doo's Brand Noo (I mean, new!)
I like "Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island" because of the fact that the group has split up and gone their seperate ways in the beginning. It's kinda neat that they took up where they left off. The film is pretty interesting with all the usual suspects, but with a twist plot. Even though the monsters may be real, there's still a mystery afoot. The only downside is that they don't have any "logical explanation" for anything, unlike the old Scooby-Doo episodes. I guess that making the monsters real allows the film to become more flexible. As for scariness, my brothers watch this film a LOT and they weren't scared one bit! Mind you, one of them is only FOUR!
P.S. For those who don't know it, Third Eye Blind sings the Scooby-Doo theme song in the opening! Look for their name in the credits!...more info
- One of the best!
This movie is one of the best Scooby-Doo movies that I've seen. It had a perfect mix of old-classic Scooby as well as some new characteristics. I recomend this movie to every true Scooby-Doo fan!...more info
- Quite good!
My four year old got into watching the Scooby reruns and we saw the movie together. While he was slightly frightened at certain points in the movie, he was more upset during Toy Story 2.
It doesn't have a rating listed here, but I would think that in general, it would be appropriate for 5 years old children and up. I can definitely see why a 3 year old may be scared of it....more info
- I agree ...
My son and I LOVE Scooby. This one is different. The Zombies end up being real, no masks. The actually pull one of their heads off showing that they are not wearing masks. Good story and funny moments, but definitely feel a PG-13 warning should be put on this one....more info
I LOVED IT! I'M NINE YEARS AND MY LITTLE BROTHER IS 4 YEARS OLD AND HE LOVES SCOOBY--IN FACT HE'S WATCHING ANOTHER SCOOBY TAPE WHILE I'M WRITING THIS REVIEW...more info
- Scobby Doo is back and scared than ever.
Scooby Doo makes a comeback from his 3 films in the late 80's. And this time they added Scooby Doo Where Are You? But the movie is short. The first 3 was between 90-95 minutes long. But it seems that that it got cut down short. The movie clocks at about 77 minutes. Scooby Doo and Shaggy star in this you must love to watch me eat movie.
This time there is no Scrappy Doo. But the whole gang is here. But they have broken up because the monstars/ghosts are bad guys in maskes. Daphne has her own show while Fred runs it. Velma opened her own mystery bookstore, and Scooby and Shaggy has both gotten jobs at the same airport. But get fired when thier boss catchs them not working. A few seconds later Shaggy gets a phone call from Fred. Shaggy cliams that Scooby and him was just thinking of taking some time off.
Fred is inviting Shaggy and Scooby along for the ride to find a real haunted house for Daphne's viewers. The show is entering its second season. Fred aslo invited Velma along too. And she was saving a box of Scooby Snacks for a long time. But now they are no good. Daphne wishes to find a real haunted house. She is tired of finding fake ghosts.
And just so happens that she gets her wish. A young woman was listening in on the talking and decides to show them her bosses haunted house. Shaggy and Scooby are off eating at the time. (of course). Her name is Lena. And her bosses name is Simone. But Simone doesn't like dogs. So she has cats. Lots of cats. How does Simone keep track of them?
And the house is really haunted. And with lots of hot peppers. Simone doesn't have tv on her island. Scooby Doo gets Simone all shook up after he chases her cats. So she wants something done about Scooby. Simone welcomes Scooby to her kitchen if that will keep him from catching cats. I think this must be the scariest Scooby Doo film of all the films so far. Some secens make give little kids nightmares. But still good movie....more info
- Not for small children
I have two preschoolers who LOVE Scooby Doo (as I did when the shows were 1st run). I mistakenly got this tape, thinking it couldn't be bad.
This is MUCH less funny and more graphic than the original series. There is no carefree mood in this movie that I could find.
It is fine for grown ups, but small kids will be horrified. My oldest had bad dreams for a week from watching it one time....more info
- Way too scary for younger kids
This Scooby Doo video is much too scary for kids under 10 or so: the zombies are truly frightening, a la Night of the Living Dead, and both they and the cat monsters in the story turn out to be _real_ -- very different from most Scooby Doo stories where the monster turns out to be a regular human in disguise. There's a scene where Fred tries to pull a zombie's "mask" off and ends up pulling off the creature's head -- in a kids' video?? What were the video makers thinking?!
We made the mistake of letting our 6-year-old Scooby Doo fan watch this without screening it ourselves first (we figured "It's Scooby Doo, it'll be fine") and we were very sorry -- it gave him nightmares. So we advise other parents of young children -- see this one yourself before you decide whether your kids can watch it; it's not the Scooby Doo you remember from your own childhood....more info
- Very Good Movie!
In this new movie it is the 90's. The whole gang are grown up with their own careers. Daphne is a reporter who has her own talk show. Freddie is a writer who produces her show, they are also dating. Velma owns a mystery bookstore. Shaggy is still exploring his career path. Scooby Doo still likes eating those scooby snacks. They take the mystery machine to New Orleans to find a real haunted house on a mysterious Bayou. They find that the ghosts and Zombies haunting the island are real! They must solve the mystery of Zombie Island.
I grew up with Scooby Doo in the late 70's and the 80's. It is great to see Scooby Doo making a comeback in the 90's. The characters are still funny. I like it that they are not stuck in a 70's timewarp. The characters are grown up with careers. They wear 90's cloths and listen to 90's music. The music goes with the action in the movie. This is a great movie for anyone who has grown up watching Scooby Doo....more info
