4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly flawed NEW HALLOWEEN CLASSIC! 23 Sep 2004
By E K Maxmias - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Since Halloween is my fovorite Holiday, I could not resist buying this DVD for me, and my kids. I had not previously seen this made-for-TV special, but found it for such a reasonable price, I took the plunge. In hindsight, a good move. Here is a list of my thoughts as they spill from my gooey BRAIN!!...

-Why 4 stars? The CGI is a little crude (when compared to other TV CGI productions). I'm being a little picky, but I found it a distraction to see ocassional surfaces protrude through things unintentionally (Head through hare) and unatural motion for human characters (a bit "floaty").

-The story is near perfect. It captures the Halloween spirit we all remember as kids. All FUN with a hint of SCARE!!

-Some references will become dated with time (I'm a rich baseball player in an SUV") but overall, it's not too trendy.

-I got a little tired of the "Wolfman being hungry" gag. The vampire family, on the other hand, epitomize funny scares.

-This DVD is extras free. A bit dissapointing but not a show stopper.

-Color is spectacular. All the greens, oranges, blacks, reds and purples you wish Halloween shows would display.

-Dispite the nit-picking, I really fell in love with this as a holiday regular. It will be a tradition in our house.

-Some of the dialogue was ill timed and poorly paced, but the voices were spot-on. Truly appealing characters all around.

-Definitely a few lessons for kids to learn from this adventure. "Consequences" certainly a key point. Also "judging a book by it's cover", "don't believe everything you're told" and being responsible, are hammered home while enhancing the story. No small accomplishment.

-The soundtrack is "Shock-n-roll" alla "The Munsters Theme". Actually pretty cool!

In a nutshell, other than a few technical "gliches" and some timing flaws (at least I thought so), you can't go wrong with this Halloween "Spook-tacular", especially if you have pre-teens, though I really enjoyed it myself.

At the time my daughter saw this she was four years-old and loved it right off the bat. She is now five and still loves to watch it. My husband and I do too. Very entertaining for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooktakular! 22 Nov 2008
By Tabby Sweet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Halloween is a great holiday for kids of all ages. But sometimes there are things that may just be a little bit scary... until you get to know them. After all, what's a holiday without frights? Arbor Day?
Scary Godmother is a perfect Halloween movie for kids that helps teach them that it's okay to be a little scared sometimes, so long as you're having fun. All the creatures of the Fright Side help make Halloween fun for everyone and Hannah learns that not all monsters are big and scary. Some are just big.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!!! Very funny movie. 5 Oct 2008

Saw this movie maybe twice but loved it every time. Watched it when it first came out with my daughter and she thought it was hysterical. A little scary, very funny and well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for All Ages 7 Sep 2004
By Jill Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's a great pleasure to be able to introduce audiences everywhere to my cast of creatures. Check out the holiday special which was adapted from the successful stage play, which in turn was based on my collective graphic novels and comics!

Follow the story of Hannah Marie on Halloween night. Ditched in the abandoned house on Halloween Night while trying to fit in with the big kids, Hannah meets her Scary Godmother, the Ambassador to all that is Spooky. Join her as she travels to the Fright Side and meets a cadre of Creatures That Go Bump in the Night-- like Harry the Werewolf, Skully Pettibone, the Skeleton in the Closet , the Vampire Family and Bug-A-Boo, the Monster Under the Bed, and conquers her fears.

Heartily endorsed by ages three to eighty three, the holiday special is good for the whole family.

Gothic moms and soccer moms alike give two thumbs up to The Scary Godmother Holiday Spooktakular.

Make it your pre-trick or treat tradition!

Creepy and Kooky, Shreiky and Spooky, not Gory or Gross, this Special emphasizes the value of not being afraid of what you don't know and being true to yourself.

Animation fans will delight in the beautifully rendered cgi and comic fans will appreciate the true to source characterization!

Try it! You'll like it!
