This is the other new Scooby-Doo movie I had to watch, and… it’s so bad. Dear lord, I didn’t know that even Scooby-Doo could sink this low. It’s a mixture of Twilight and that Phantom of the Opera musical, with a Scooby-Doo sensibility. Yeah, it’s a musical, and it’s as bad as it sounds.
The Mystery Machine gang decides to take a vacation away from monsters… by going to a town known for it’s year-round celebratory vampire festivals. Velma wants to get her copy of “Silverlight”, a teen romance about vampires, signed, you see. Of course there turns out to be a “real” vampire, and a vampiric performing troupe named “Vampinschantz” or some shit kidnaps Daphne to make her the vampire’s bride. And there are songs. Songs.
Shitty music has long been a staple of Scooby-Doo, but they’ve never gone full musical before. Honestly, I’d far prefer some David Cassidy song that’s completely unrelated to them being chased by a seaweed monster than Shaggy and Scooby singing atonally about how they are friends. FUCK. THAT.
