Warner Home Video has just released a brand-new animated film, Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire, now available. Get set for monstrous mayhem as Scooby-Doo and the gang hit the road to attend a vampire fair in this full-length musical adventure.
Get set for big laughs, good times, and cool tunes with the Scooby-Doo gang as they travel to the super spooky parts of the Deep South for the Vampire-Palooza Festival. The event kicks off with good fun and lots of tasty Southern snacks, but it’s not long before the festivities are interrupted by a real vampire who threatens the townsfolk and tries to take Daphne for his vampire bride!
Good thing our intrepid heroes don’t believe in the bloodsuckers — or do they? Packing a little garlic never hurt anyone, except a vampire, and so the gang sets out to investigate. Could the culprit be the descendant of a famous vampire hunter who is trying to sell his book? Or is it the festival’s owner, who is trying to use vampire lore to promote the fair? Maybe it’s the festival’s traveling musical troupe, whose very handsome lead singer is taking his vampire role just a little too seriously?
Things get more complicated when Shaggy, believing he’s been bitten by a vampire, decides to hide from his friends in the swamp, but his loyal friend Scooby-Doo will not abandon him. And when Daphne goes missing, can Fred and Velma bring everyone together to prevent her from becoming the vampire queen? Everything culminates in a not-to-be-missed song-filled showdown in the swamp!
DVD Bonus Material:
Sing-A-Long: Sing with Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and the rest of the cast from the movie in the Scooby-Doo Vampire Sing-A-Long. Includes six songs for fourteen minutes of fun.
Our Take: My four-year-old loves watching Scooby. This one not so much. This video has the typical crime-solving kids trying to figure out the who-dun-it. But it was different to hear them break out into songs. I don’t think he had the patience to listen to them singing. When they started singing I noticed that his attention turned to his toys but would look up every now and again. Be prepared for a different mystery-solving gang!
