I can honestly blame the free trial of Amazon Prime for my having seen any of this film, compared to the endless list of cheap horror film and borderline ‘adult’ titles this looked good.
Watching approximately 15 minutes of the film did make the world feel a better place… when it stopped.
Although I can honestly say that I hadn’t previously considered what Velma would look like with Japanese origins and in fairness to Hayley Kiyoko she was definitely the only one with acting ability in the film – apart from Scooby.
The monster being a giant frog with fangs was also … different, but it felt like a children only film rather than a family film, so I stopped bothering.
I remembered this film being pretty awful, so was pleasantly surprised when I found myself laughing at it – perhaps my stressed out brain needed something amazingly dumb to relax it, but I honestly sort of enjoyed this film!
The jokes are awful to the point where they almost become funny, the acting is very iffy but sort of works – Matthew Lillard may as well change his name of Shaggy after this, and the entire thing feels like it is a parody of itself and I really hope that most of that was is deliberate!
I might try rewatching it when I am not massively stressed and see if its entertainment value deteriorates!
