After years of unmasking fake ghosts, the Mystery Gang have separated and acquired new careers, including Daphne being a reporter. For her birthday, Fred invites the whole gang to join their trip to Louisiana for Daphne's television show. They have many adventures but every ghost is just a villain in a costume. They soon meet Lena Dupree, who takes them to Moonscar Island in the hopes to encounter a real ghost. Things soon become creepy and the gang find themselves caught between vicious werecats and zombies lead by the ghost of Moonscar the Pirate. Written by
When Lena shows Fred his room, she opens the shades to see the setting sun and tells him that he will have a great view of the harvest moon. The harvest moon is a full moon and would appear in the opposite direction of the setting sun. A moon in the same direction as the setting sun would be a new moon. See more »
No wonder you became a reporter, that monster almost sliced you up like a pepperoni pizza.
Actually Chris, every time there seemed to be a monster, it was just bad guys in masks.

Out of all the Scooby movies that have been made over the years (including the two live action ones), Zombie Island is by far the best; the characters are older, the plot line is much more sophisticated than previous attempts, is even a little scary, and by far LOOKS the best (even though it was a direct-to-video movie, it has the quality of a major motion picture, a big plus). Although Scooby and Shaggy haven't changed much, Fred, Velma, and especially Daphne were revamped - Velma is still calculating, but suspicious to a fault; Fred takes shotgun to Daphne as the leader, and "is in denial," about supernatural things; Daphne is no longer just the pretty face of the group, she's also intelligent, brave, completely independent, and the undisputed leader. Had Hanna Barbera and Warner Bros. actually kept up with this kind of material, Scooby would still be alive and kicking more so than it is; but, alas, they copped out for the "bad guy wearing a mask" routine, reverting the characters back to their original archetypes. Maybe someday someone will recreate the show using the characters and basic events, but for now, Zombie Island remains the absolute pinnacle of the Scooby World.
