Scary movie – Monster High: Ghouls Rule

It’s only a few weeks until Halloween. We love Halloween and El has been getting ready:

 

We have also been watching a scary movie, which was sent to us for review and is brand new released this week. But not any old scary movie – this one’s suitable for kids.

Monster High: Ghouls Rule is the first film featuring the animated versions of the mega popular Monster High range of dolls. All the favourites are here: Frankie  Stein (based on Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein’s monster), Draculaura (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Clawdeen Wolf (werewolf) and Abbey Bominable (the Abominable Snowman). It’s a bit like High School Musical without the songs but with added fangs. Grrrrrr!

The plot involves the beastly students on a mission to win back Halloween from the Normies.

We like the underlying ethos of: Be Yourself, Be Unique, Be a Monster. What a great motto to live by.

El liked Cleo the Mummy’s daughter, the clothes obsessed spolit brat and the headless headmistress.

As a film, though, it makes a great doll advert. Little brother Eye found it too horrific, and not in the way the makers intended, as he covered his eyes and complained This is really bad.

But this DVD is not really aimed at little brothers. If you like the dolls you will like this.

If you like animated high school kids with snakes in their hair you will like it even more.

It wasn’t really aimed at our age group so we didn’t really engage with it that much, but then we don’t have the dolls and we think that younger girls would really enjoy it.

Monster High: Ghouls Rule is released on 8th October in DVD, Blu Ray and digital download formats, priced from £10.99, currently reduced to a bargain £8 at Amazon. Includes main feature plus three extra bonus short cartoons.
