A little to frightening for very young children, but still a great film!
I love Zombie Island very much, one of the best Scooby Doo movies easily along with Witch's Ghost. The animation was very good(one of the best-looking Scooby films), and so was the very 90s soundtrack, Terror Time's extremely catchy. The voice talents, while not as great as the ones in the two films I mentioned, are extremely good. The standouts are Billy West and Adrienne Barbeau.(with a great french-sounding accent), I also really liked Tara Charendoff as Lena, so much better than she was in the Little Mermaid sequel, where her character was very annoying. I also really liked the sophisticated and very atmospheric plot, which was refreshingly different also, about a pirate's ghost haunting a Louisianna plantation, the scenes with the zombies are genuinely unsettling(at times too much so perhaps). I never predicted the ending, I really didn't, no other ending in a Scooby Doo has been more creepy or had as much staying power. I especially loved the scenes with Scooby chasing the cats(the peppers gags were even funnier), they were funny and captures the spirit of classic Scooby very well. My only real criticism was that very young children will find it very frightening, as my sister did when she was 7, so much so she refused to see it for ages. All in all, a very good film, that is up there with Witch's Ghost, Alien Invaders and Goblin King. 9/10 Bethany Cox
