Trivia

This movie marks the only time the Mystery Gang hates being called "meddling kids". 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 »

Quotes

Velma: [after Scooby-Doo found Sarah Ravencroft's journal] Ben, that doesn't look like a journal at all.
Ben Ravencroft: [in a sinister voice] 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.

Best Scooby Doo movie out there
21 October 2006 | by Tenchi64589See all my reviews

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.

9/10
