Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School Reviews
I love the older scooby doo movies. I use to own this on vhs and watched it all the time. Still a favorite of mine!
In the film, the plot is split into 2 storylines. 1st, the ghouls worry about trying to win the upcoming Volleyball game against the neighboring Calloway Military Academy. Then, the ghouls are captured by an evil witch, known as Revolta, the Evil Witch of the Web! Finally, a part in the movie where they get to run all over a castle full of monsters!
Usually seen by others as a rather awful and underappreciated film, there is some evidence that the Ghoul School film is a candidate to become a Cult Classic! To be honest, the Con of the film is that there are so many puns in the film, it starts to get a bit annoying, and the absence of Scooby Snacks. The Pros, however, are that we get to see more of the commical stylings of Shaggy and Scooby, and nice little break away for the usual formula of the Scooby Doo series, and the ghouls themselves! Especially Sibella Dracula, the daughter of Count Dracula. While the movie has Winnie the Werewolf, Elsa the Frankenstien Monster, Phantasma 'Phanty' the Phantom, and Tanis the mummy, Sibella is shown by fans of the movie to be the most memorable ghoul. From her typical vampiress apperance, rather seductive sounding voice, and her catchphrase 'Fang-tastic'.
In addition, this movie should've gotten a sequel, especially due to the fact that at the end of the film, we see the daughters of an Alien, the Creature of the Black Lagoon, and Godzilla. In conclusion, this film is basically the its-so-bad-its-good kind of cult classic, with the bad being the puns, and the good being Scooby, Shaggy, and Sibella (rowr!).
