The gang's vacation to Paris takes a wrong turn when Scooby and Shaggy miss their flight and end up on a skydiving expedition in the Himalayas. To make matters worse, upon arrival they must outrun the Abominable Snowmonster.
When the Mystery Gang meet famous horror writer Ben Ravencroft (Tim Curry) on their last mystery, he invites them to the small town Oakhaven, Massachusetts. While there for the Autumn Harvest Festival, Ben explains the history of his ancestor Sarah Ravencroft, who happens to be an evil witch. At the same time, the Hex Girls, an all-female Gothic rock band, come to town bringing an audience there. The gang investigate the mysterious sightings while they are there which seems to be connected to the locals of the town which turns into something much more.Written by
This movie marks the only time the Mystery Gang hates being called "meddling kids". See more »
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 »

Ben, that doesn't look like a journal at all.

Because it isn't, Velma. It's a spell book! You see, Sarah wasn't a Wiccan, she was indeed a witch! And since Sarah's blood runs through my veins, I guess that makes me a warlock! The Wiccans imprisoned Sarah in her own spell book, and you helped me find it.

I started watching the original show when I first got the Cartoon Network, and as soon as I found out that they were making movies separate to the usual formula of fake villains, I just had to check 'em out.
Don't get me wrong; Zombie Island was cool too, but this one in particular is by far my favorite.
This has got to be one of the best of these movies simply because of the fact that the gang faces off against a conjured ghost... it also sheds some much-needed light on the differences between wiccans and witches.
Not only is the plot a draw, but the music was pretty cool too. The Hex Girls were pretty killer for an animated band.
All in all, I really enjoyed this movie. I even look for it every October.
