The best

Author: hisoka-3 from Spain
15 January 2005

This movie is the best. Mostly for kids, I watched it when I was little and I enjoyed it a lot, but I still love it. A great parody of the most popular classic horror films (Dracula, The Werewolf, Frankenstein...), starring the child's music band "Regaliz" performing very funny songs. The director is good and the actors manage to make us laugh very often. I keep good memories of this movie and I would love to see it again. I like it because it has very cool songs, it's so funny, exciting, you get a good laugh, and make children laugh at the classical monsters instead of fearing them. Very recommendable, both for children and adults who wants to remember their childhood besides laughing a little.

A bunch of kids taking on monster, with their dancing and singing.

OK sure, it's a kids movie but that doesn't mean it can get away with everything.

Guess that I wouldn't had minded too much seeing this movie as a kid. It's being pretty enjoyable for what it is and I'm sure that kids at the time still got a real blast out of it but that really doesn't make this a great movie as well.

It's also definitely true that this movie feels really dated. It's because of the low production values of the movie, that let the movie look really old but also really due to all of its songs. It's some pretty horrendous '80's stuff honestly, that also involves lots of dancing. All the songs and choreographs, that go along with them, happen at random and might very well also start to get on your nerves.

But that basically goes for the entire movie. It gets a pretty annoying and far too childish movie at times. There is never enough any true creativity and they didn't really made a serious effort to come up with a good script.

This movie was just a vehicle for the musical group Regaliz, that consisted out of 4 young kids. The group only existed for 3 years and it never reached great heights. This movie was probably the highlight of their careers, which should tell you something.

Kids might still get some enjoyment out of it but it really remains far from a great movie.

Very ugly monster parody

Author: Carlos Díaz Maroto (diazcdm) from Madrid, Spain

Regaliz, a Spanish musical group for childs, go to a castle and torture the classical monsters: Dracula, the Monster of Frankenstein, the Wolfman (Paul Naschy) and Quasimado. Sometimes, they torture us singing. A horrible movie, that doesn't like to people to love classic monster movies of Universal.
