Scooby-Doo and those "meddling kids" -- Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma -- are back in this all-new original movie! Velma is astonished to learn that she has inherited her great-great-uncle Dr. Von Dinklestein's castle in the terrifying town of Transylvania . . . in Pennsylvania. Just when the gang persuades Velma to go claim her inheritance, a ghost from of Dinklestein Castle blows up the Mystery Machine as a warning! The crew springs into action, and this time it's personal! The pals head to Transylvania and discover that the spooky von Dinklestein castle comes complete with a ghost, an oddball staff, a dormant monster waiting to be set free and a bunch of local villagers who blame the family for a curse whose victims lose the thing they love most. Of course, practical and brainy Velma simply doesn't believe in monsters or curses, but even she is at risk when mysterious events begin to occur.

Lots of comic action and silly scares in amusing tale.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy is jam-packed with comic spookiness, action, monsters, and creepy bad guys. Kids who are comfortable with cartoon violence as opposed to real violence should have no trouble understanding that all is meant to be funny-scary. The movie includes all the "gothic" people and events a fan could dream of: Dr. Frankenstein's monster, the von Dinklestein Curse, a spooky castle, a ghost, a hunch-backed assistant, and a menacing housekeeper, as well as townspeople out for vengeance. Although Velma's family history is the engine for this movie's plot, Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo all take center stage at times for their usual individual nutty and endearing behavior. Daphne, whose vanity and pride in her appearance is key here, is cursed by "losing her good looks." The visuals of her weight gain and a specific reference to dress size, though mocking that vanity, may perpetuate unrealistic and undesirable standards of beauty for girls.
