Trivia

A long term fan of Scooby-Doo, Tim Curry considers "Dreadful darkness, hear my cry. Bring back one who cannot die" to be his favorite line through his career as he believes this was an inside joke referring to Scooby-Doo (who entered the scene after the line was said). See more »

Goofs

There is nothing in the dialogue or plot or storyline to so much as indicate that Sarah Ravencroft actually had children before she was banished into her spellbook if she had any children they would have been banished into the spellbook with Sarah or put to death. So Ben should not even exist. See more »

Norville 'Shaggy' Rogers: Scooby!

My personal favourite of the Scooby Doo movies
8 February 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This is very good. The animation is great, so beautifully done the backgrounds were,the story is neatly-set up, and this is the movie with the best voice talent. The only criticism with the movie is the song "wind, earth, fire and air" as the lyrics are rather uninspired. Tim Curry does a fantastic job in one of his most entertaining voice overs, especially when Ben is revealed evil, and Curry is allowed to show off his impeccable villainous side. The ending is quite good, and the Hex Girls are great. The ghost is 400 years old, so the language is obviously going to be different, comprehend. This is one of the best Scooby Doo movies, better than What's New Scooby Doo? anyway. Watch out for Goblin King and Zombie Island too. In case you haven't noticed, most of my reviews are positive, because I want to be encouraging about the films I've seen, and evaluate the problems also. 9/10. Bethany Cox
