The sensitive Onnoval is the best student in his class and he loves Liselore, who was the girlfriend of the bully Gino. His teacher Meester de Vriend believes he is a promising writer and poet. Gino picks on Onnoval all the time, but Onnoval does not fight against Gino because he believes he is a werewolf. When the successful writer of horror tales Nol van Paulo comes for a lecture in his class, he advises Onnonval to never write a story for the evil Ferluci. However, Onnoval is humiliated by Gino and very upset and jealous he writes a story about a class excursion in a horror bus to a horror park, where Gino is killed by a vampire, and gives his story to Ferluci. Later he regrets, but Nol van Paulo tells him that the only way to fix the situation would be stealing his note book and rewriting the conclusion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A worthy movie
2 December 2005 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

Anyone that expects a one to one transition of the books, will feel cheated. However, the viewer that just keeps the general atmosphere of Paul van Loon's novels in mind and sits to enjoy a movie, not a book, will be thrilled. The movie breathes the original combination of humor and horror even though the story is utterly new and has little elements from previous stories, it is worth having the title of Griezelbus.

Especially the kid actors are fit for the job and Willem Nijholt as Reisleider and Count Vlapono is truly magnificent. The only thing I didn't like too much were the special effects. They seemed a little cheesy at times. Not bad, but cheap. But I doubt the target group will be bothered with that at all.

Fans of the genre and especially of Paul van Loon, it's a must see!
