Monster High 13 Wishes (No Spoilers)
on 5 March 2015
I have two nieces who are Monster High mad and have just under 30 Monster High dolls and playsets at my house for them to play with when they visit along with tons more that I have bought them over the last few years (for at their own homes) and so I am no stranger to the world of Monster High.
The movie is all about Howleen wolf finding an ancient lamp which just happens to contain Gigi Grant, the genie of the lamp inside. The finder of the lamp is entitled to 13 wishes and Gigi warns Howleen to use them wisely and not for selfish or dark purposes. Unbeknownst to Howleen and her friends, Gigi has a dark twin called Whisp who wishes to escape the lamp and become a real person like her sister Gigi but Whisp has become evil over time and has nothing but bad intentions planned for Howleen and her friends. Howleen is desperate to be popular like her big sister and Whisp preys on this fragility. If Howleen makes too many wrong or selfish wishes then Whisp will increase control over her and eventually manage to escape the lamp and trap all of her school inside the lamp forever. Working out what is happening, her sister Clawdeen and her friends Frankie, Draculaura, Abbey and Ghoulia set out to rescue Howleen from Whips control. Can the friends triumph over evil and save Howleen and their school?............
A really good Monster High movie which teaches friendship, trust, doing the right thing and adversity over the odds. The film advises it is PEGI7 but my three year old is fascinated with the Monster High girls from watching my nieces with them over the last few years and he has now watched the film a few times. There all mild scary elements in it such as the dung beetle scene and when Whisp is throwing a wobbly but other than that I wouldn't say there was anything really unsuitable in there for a younger viewer unless they are a bit sensitive to monsters. A brilliant film for any Monster High fan and not too bad to have to watch as an adult either!
The film runs for approx 1h 10mins and has some bonus features of 3 shorts and a peek at Ever After High which I don't think was out when the film was initially released.
