A Monsterous Holiday DVD Review

A Monsterous Holiday DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 15, 2013
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Doctor Frankenstein is back in time for Halloween. Kidzworld reviews A MONSTEROUS HOLIDAY, is now available on VOD & DVD!

A young inventor named Andy, reaches out to his neighbor Doctor Frankenstein to help him win the upcoming science fair. But, finding the Doctor not to be at home, he meets the next best thing, Frankenstein’s monster; who turns out to be a teenager like himself. While Frankenstein takes Andy’s place on the football team, Andy uses Frankenstein’s knowledge and lab to find an invention for the fair. But when he inadvertently creates a monster of his own, they must work together to save the town and Halloween!

The Bottom Line

Quirky and fun, if you're trying to get into the spirit of Halloween, this animated story will set you on the right path. It's a new spin on an old OLD idea ( Frankenstein has been around for ages). Mixing Frankenstein with a mistaken identity/Parent Trap plotline is fresh take on the crazy inventor and his monster story. The animation is done in a similar style to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs , so it's got some fantastic character design - the only place it really fall short is on some of the jokes and dialogue, which can be a little cheesy and cliche at times (but hey, that's sort of what Halloween is about right?) If you're planning a freaky Friday movie night, A Monsterous Holiday is a good place to start (hopefully followed by Frankenweenie or Hotel Transylvania, two great movies in the same genre.)
