Two Cent Halloween

Scooby-Doo Vol. 2

Looking for more than unmasking fake ghosts, the Mystery Inc. gang breaks up and goes their separate way choosing new career paths for themselves. Daphne (Mary Kay Bergman) is now a reporter on the hunt for real ghosts for her TV show. Fred (Frank Welker) gets the gang back together for Daphne’s birthday. They take a road trip to Louisiana for actual ghost hunting. They wind up on Moonscar Island where they find more real ghosts than they imagined!

Zombie Island was great! It’s the most fun I’ve had watching a Scooby-Doo movie in a long time. It has some good action and comedy. It’s actually pretty dark and scary for an animated Scooby-Doo movie. There’s cat gods, characters are controlled by voodoo dolls, and other scary images. This movie might be darker than what some families are willing to tolerate especially for a movie intended for children. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under the age of 12. It’s a good scary movie for older kids. You can rent it on iTunes or borrow it from the library. Yes, they still exist.

After Shaggy’s (Casey Kasem) Uncle Beaureguard dies, Shaggy, along witScooby and Scrappy (Don Messick for both), travel to his mansion to collect his inheritance. They soon discover the plantation is haunted by a Confederate soldier ghost and call the local ghost exterminators, The Boo Brothers for a little Supernatural assistance.

This wasn’t my favorite Scooby-Doo movie. I found it boring to be honest. There were some scenes that I found enjoyable. The Boo Brothers were entertaining. They were heavily influenced by the Three Stooges. I always love hearing Rob Paulsen’s voice in anything. He’s one of my favorite voice actors. There’s nothing wrong with the movie from a moral standpoint except the one girl character is dressed immodestly. This might bother some parents. I just didn’t like this one as much as I like some others. You can rent or borrow it from online retailers and libraries. Maybe you’ll like it better than I did.
