Susan Murphy (a.k.a. Ginormica) and the Monsters are now working with the US government as special ops. So when an alien presence is detected in Susan's hometown of Modesto, California -- right before Halloween -- the team is dispatched to investigate.

But when Halloween arrives, those innocent-looking carved pumpkins reveal themselves for what they really are mutant aliens. The altered pumpkins then start to implement their fiendish plan to take over Earth. The Monsters are there to combat the mutant gourds and try to smash their wicked scheme! Written by
The kids will like it a lot more than the adults--just like the original film.
I was not a huge fan of the original "Monsters Versus Aliens", so my expectations for this short film were relatively low.
The show begins with a spaceship dumping its toilet waste on a pumpkin patch. Then, abruptly, the scene switches to the headquarters where the monsters live--with the usual banter between the characters from the original film. It's all interrupted when the General announces SOMETHING weird is happening in Modesto and the team needs to see what's they can do. Apparently, the pumpkins from the infected patch are BAD--and planning on doing...well, tune in for yourself to find out what happens next.
Overall, the CGI is pretty good and the characters rather enjoyable. I particularly liked seeing Bob trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, the plot wasn't particularly good. In other words, when the film resorted to a plot, it was a lot less fun. All in all, the kids will probably love it and the adults will find it a bit too much.
