For the Love of Scooby Doo: (Part 6) Scooby Doo: Stage Fright 2013 7 out of 10

Scooby Doo :Stage Fright   2013   7 out of 10

At first the latest Scooby Doo DVD adventure seemed like it was going to be a little underwhelming.   The same storyline that has happened way too many times before,  finds Scooby and the gang at a talent show in a opera house with a Phantom trying to ruin the show and scare off the contestants.  Of course it quickly turns into a little bit of a clever twist on this old plot.  The movie should have been called  "Will the real Phantom please stand up"  or   "How Many Phantoms are there?"  The gang uncovers the Phantom way too early in the movie and it quickly becomes apparent that there are more Phantoms in this mystery than you can shake a stick at, which actually worked to make the story interesting.  I love the way that after all these years the people behind Scooby Doo can continue to make it interesting.   Whether it is with the mythology driven  recent Mystery Inc series, What's New Scooby Doo,  the original series or direct to DVD movies.   I will never grow to old to appreciate that group of meddling kids and their lovable dog.
