This is the first year that Ashlyn has been old enough to understand what goes on at Halloween, and it’s all she wants to talk about these days! Luckily for us, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. has released a Double DVD Pack of Scared Shrekless and Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space, just in time for Halloween.
“In Scared Shrekless, the gang gathers to celebrate Shrek’s favorite holiday: Halloween! But instead of the usual tricks or treats, Shrek ups the ante and challenges everyone to spend the night telling scary stories—the last one to be scared Shrekless wins. The DVD includes spooky spoofs on classics horror movies and features the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and
Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space finds Susan, B.O.B., The Missing Link, and Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. dispatched as special operatives to investigate a mysterious alien presence on Halloween. As the night unravels, innocent-looking pumpkins are revealed for what they really are – mutant aliens! Luckily the monsters are there to smash the mutants’ wicked scheme to take over Earth. Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space features the star-studded cast of voice talent from the original hit film including Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland and Rainn Wilson.”
Ashlyn’s favourite movie to watch so far is Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space (she’s too young to get most of the jokes in Shrek) but we both love the Shrek “Thriller” music video that is included! I also enjoy watching the fabulous animation and trying to place all of the actors voices.
There are so many bonus features, from karaoke to music videos to previews, that we still haven’t seen everything. I’m saving a few for a long car ride we have coming up. It’s nice to have seasonal movies to pull out and help create excitement for Halloween, and these are movies that we’ll enjoy year after year!
