Trivia

Sarah Ravencroft's appearance and temperament were based on the iconic Disney villainess, Cruella de Vil. See more »

Goofs

Velma is correct in stating that the modern-day word for "witch" comes from the word "wicca". However, "wicca" is a masculine Old English word that means "sorcerer", meaning that "witch" and "wicca" are technically synonyms. See more »

Quotes

[Ben Ravencroft has just used her own spell book to free Sarah Ravencroft]
Sarah Ravencroft: Thou has free me, so now I can punish the world for my long imprisonment. I shall create an era of darkness over this land!
Ben Ravencroft: This isn't how I envisioned it. We were supposed to rule the world together, not destroy it!

Contemporary Scooby Doo.
25 October 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this more contemporary Scooby Doo movie, the Mystery Inc. gang visits the the small town of Oakhaven. There, they discover the history of a witch named Sarah Ravencroft and witnesses the appearance of the Hex girls, which brings about mysterious sightings throughout the town.

The animation in this movie was very colorful and the plot was somewhat suspenseful, making the story elements, especially that of the witches, actually chilling and more thrilling than the story lines of the original Scooby-Doo series. It was great seeing Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby all banding together again to solve the mystery; you can tell that the humor, jokes and dialog have a more hip and modern touch to it - to keep in line with the late 1990s and early 2000s fad.

While a pretty fun and entertaining movie, it doesn't have that unique flavor of the classic Scooby-Doo series. It was interesting and noteworthy, though, to see this movie contain real supernatural forces. It's worthy to see - younger kids would enjoy this.

Grade B-
