SCOOBY DOO ON ZOMBIE ISLAND (Video Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Scooby Doo on Zombie Island—better than either Scooby-Doo (2002 release) or Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004 release)—gets the entertainment job done. The movie faithfully interprets the original intent of the Scooby-Doo stories with its animation format, just right suspense, and interplay between characters. The film can entertain the adult and the child equally well. Thank you to the three directors who shared development of the final product: Hiroshi Aoyama, Kazumi Fukushima, and Jim Stenstrum.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie plays close to the original intent of the televised series and will not disappoint the Scooby-Doo fan. It’s a good trip down memory lane for the adult and serves as a nice way to introduce the child to the world of Scooby-Doo.
