Trivia

Ben Ravencroft's home town is Oakhaven, Massachusetts which is a fictional town. The building of the Puritan Village would surmise it's a substitute for Sturbridge or Plymouth. Witches would surmise it's Salem or Danvers. None of the people in the town speak with a Boston-area accent. Ben speaks with a light British accent and the Mayor speaks with a very distinct Maine accent. See more »

Goofs

While Wicca is a nature-oriented religion that did not appear until the 20th Century, nature-oriented spiritual healers could very well have existed in the 1600s. Additionally, being a religion, Wicca is not passed down through bloodlines. See more »

Quotes

[after retrieving Sarah Ravencroft's spell book]
Daphne: Why go through this elaborate scheme? Why not just ask us to find the book?
Velma: I know why. Because if we knew what that book was, we would never have helped him!
Ben Ravencroft: But even you can imagine the real power of this book. No mere mortal can.
Fred Jones: You've reading too many of your own horror stories, Ravencroft!
Ben Ravencroft: A typical mortal response, but I am descended form a superior breed. I shall unlock the power of the imprisoned Sarah Ravencroft! Together, we shall reign...

Velma's story
12 April 2004 | by DarthBillSee all my reviews

In this follow up to "Zombie Island", Velma finally gets a shot at romance when she and the gang meet Ben Ravencroft, a horror author with a shady family history - was his great, great, great grandma a witch of a wiccan? Well, someone's terrorizing his home town - is it a genuine witch or are the towns people trying to pull a scam? Do those creepy Vampire Singer girls have anything to do with it? The usual gags and calamity ensue.

In addition to Velma's love story, another innocent observation is made about Fred & Daphne - namely that Fred is always pairing himself with Daphne when the gang splits up. Shaggy finally shows interest in women, which later becomes a big factor in "Alien Invaders". Shaggy also appears to be shorter here than he used to be; he was always the tallest of the bunch but now appears to be hunched over. Must be the new animation.

But this is really about Velma and her long ignored need for love and affection (hinted at when she got all giggly around the rugged detective gardener at the end of "Zombie Island"). Never before has Velma ever had this kind of treatment in an animated Scooby feature, and odds are she won't get it again. And backing her up is the usual gang and good animation. Probably not for little kids though.
