Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island is a 1998 direct-to-video animated horror film directed by Jim Stenstrum and written by Glenn Leopold and Davis Boi. It is based on Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Plot

Scooby and the gang reunite in search of mysteries and adventure, when they chance upon a remote island inhabited by an undead pirate and his zombie crew.

Why It Rocks

  1. This is the first Scooby-Doo! film to tell a complex story with depth and background.
  2. Fantastic animation that captures the film's more dark and gloomy tone.
  3. It has awesome songs (such as "It's Terror Time Again" by Skycycle) and a fantastic soundtrack composed by Steven Bramson.
  4. The film moves at a decent pace.
  5. Great voice acting. Especially from Billy West as Shaggy and Frank Welker as Fred.
  6. The three werecats (Simone, Lena and Jacques) are fantastic and well-developed villains with an interesting backstory.
  7. The plot twist of the zombies being revealed to be trying to protect the gang from the real villains is excellent.

Reception

The film received universal acclaim from critics, audiences and fans alike. It currently holds an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Trivia

  • The story was based upon Glenn Leopold's unfinished Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron: The Curse of Kataluna (1995)
  • This film was dedicated to Don Messick, the original voice of Scooby-Doo.
  • It was Hanna-Barbera's first film after it was purchased by Warner Bros. and was also the first Scooby-Doo production since Scooby-Doo! in Arabian Nights in 1994.

Hey, I watched it too. I remember being somewhat disappointed that there were real monsters instead of the fake ones from the TV show. Not a bad movie though.

Man, it's too bad that this didn't release in theaters because it could have been more recognizable! Wonder why it didn't.
