Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed
is the 2004 sequel to the 2002 live action movie Scooby-Doo
Mystery Inc. is attending the grand opening of a museum based on their adventures and the monsters they caught. However, the celebration is cut short due to the Pterodactyl ghost attacking and stealing two different costumes. As it turns out, someone is using a machine to reanimate the monster costumes and turn them into real monsters.
The film was an even worse failure critically than the first, but some how managed to gross around $180 million. However, it ended up winning a Golden Razzie Award for "Worst Remake or Sequel."
