Reviews Comments: Has no business being as good as it is. Scooby Doo On Zombie Island film/book review by Captain Clown

To many, describing a film as \"Darker and Edgier \' Scooby-Doo \' where they fight cat monsters and zombies and Southerners\" will turn them off of watching it, because that\'s a fucking stupid description and Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island deserves better. Yes, it\'s dark and mature Scooby. Yes, there are zombies, cat monsters, and Southerners, all of whom are evil (and the zombies and cats ain\'t so pretty themselves). But that\'s good, great even. For once, the gang is dealing with an actual threat, and they suck at dealing with it—Mystery Inc. is broken up, you guys—and this gives the film surprising weight. The character work is great, and as for scares…I\'m still baffled that my Ma let me watch this as a child because I\'m still scared by it. Oh, and the music is pure magic—who\'da thunk that Main/{Punk} would be sooooo good for Scoobs?

So…watch the movie. You won\'t regret it.

After all these years I still remember that song \"Terror time\" I\'m not a Scooby doo fan, but that song has stuck with me. Decent movie too.
