Monster High Scaris City Of Frights

“Monster High-Scaris: City of Frights” is an American 1-hour movie from 2013, so this one has its 5th anniversary next year. And with one hour I actually mean one hour. i guess the person who wrote 44 minutes here on IMDb thought there were commercial breaks included in this one and it is actually a short film. But at 58 minutes, it is indeed a full feature movie, just not a very long one. I cannot say I am familiar with any of the writers, directors or voice actors here, but I see they are all fairly experienced and most of them worked on other Monster High projects too. For those who do not know the series, let me say that this is about a group of girls from Monster High, all looking more or less scary and their adventures. And adventures here actually refers to the whole wide world as three quarters of the film take place in the city of Scaris (reference to Paris, you understand the comedy). I personally felt this was a pretty entertaining watch most of the time. I have seen maybe 1 or 2 other installments of Monster High and honestly I felt many of the characters were interchangeable, but maybe you need to have seen more to really see the differences. So it may be just me. One think I did not like is the animation here. It looks pretty weak, especially the characters, for a film from the 21st century, even if it is just a small screen movie. So the visual side is absolutely not on par with the story and comedy writing for this one, which is definitely on a really good level. The only criticism I have about the story is that it should have ended over 10 minutes earlier. The ways in which they travel the world were honestly enough material for at least two more films. Or for a separate short film. What happened after minute 45 just didn't fit in this one and the contrast is too big compared to everything that happened before. It feels like a different movie really. Nonetheless, the positive outweighs the negative and this is apparently an animated series that is still going strong despite how many installments already exist. I recommend checking this one out.

In spite of the predictable conclusion, ‘Monster High: Scaris, City of Frights’ sneaks in a few clever surprises and laughs to complement the seriousness of Clawdeen’s dilemma — to sacrifice one’s uniqueness for a career. Along with the charmingly creative names, the story also comes with a pair of subplots that add to the comedy. While Cleo, Abbey, Draculaura and Lagoona tour the most romantic city in the whole world with a noticeably uninterested, photo-bombing Toralei in tow, Frankie, Rochelle and Ghoulia search for Garrott through the lesser known parts of Scaris, such as the catacombs where old, weary bones are trying to rest. The short animated feature ends with an added web-based adventure called “From Fear to Eternity” where several of the ghouls, on their way back to Monster High, are sidetracked by Clawdeen’s sentient sketchbook, which has a curious pet-like personality. It makes for a fun and spirited finish to an otherwise more serious storyline, one which young viewers will surely find as entertaining as it is illuminating.

Monster High Scaris City Of Frights

In typical ‘Monster High’ fashion, ‘Scaris, City of Frights’ delivers the friendly fears with the usual morality tale masquerading as a campfire yarn, teaching little monsters a valuable lesson on staying true to one’s self. And in the eyes of these amiable and adorable fiends, imagined as the children of classic Universal monsters, the more frightfully unconventional and strange, the better. With each new installment to the toddler-friendly cartoon series, I’ve noticed the animated spinoff of the popular fashion doll franchise slowly maturating with very mildly complex adult themes the intended target audience can understand and appreciate. Granted, the same moral remains at the center of every story, unifying the spooky universe into a larger whole, but each fearsome adventure comes at it from a different perspective, from the point of view of a unique character personally affected and challenged by an outside force peer-pressuring and tempting her to change. This new entry is no different; only, it raises the stakes slightly by confronting the burdens of the adult world.

This latest edition was surprisingly a bit more entertaining than its predecessors because it takes one of the franchise’s better known characters, Clawdeen Wolf, out of her comfort zone and sees her doubting her distinctive creativity in favor of winning the approval of her idol. The Blu-ray arrives with a good-looking video and an excellent audio presentation, but the supplements are lacking. Nevertheless, the little monsters in the family will be more than satisfied.

The teen ghouls deliver the frights in their latest fearsome adventure with another excellent DTS-HD MA soundtrack, and this is, hands down, the best ‘Monster High’ has ever sounded on Blu-ray. Although much of the action is located in the fronts, imaging continuously feels broad and expansive, filled with the various off-screen commotion that’s highly amusing and convincing. The music also adds another layer of action, spreading across the entire screen, creating an appreciable wall of sound that’s terrifically engaging. With vocals very well-prioritized and intelligible in the center, movement across all three channels is flawless while dynamic range maintains distinct clarity and a surprisingly punchy and responsive bass provides weight. On several occasions, the design employs the surround speakers for some of the more elaborate action sequences. The intermittent effects are discrete and pan around the listening area flawlessly, nicely enhancing the soundfield and generating a couple satisfyingly immersive moments.

As with every ‘Monster High’ entry, this latest installments scares Blu-ray with the same economical, one-dimensional style of computer animation. But in spite of its Saturday morning cartoon look, fine lines around various objects and buildings are fairly sharp, except the photography comes with an intentional hazy, blurry look that sometimes makes certain aspects less appealing. Nonetheless, the outfits of characters appear elaborate and detailed. Blacks are inky rich and penetrating while contrast levels are comfortably bright and very well-balanced. The color palette is mostly geared towards primaries which are richly saturated and pronounced, but secondary hues are also quite bold to give the 1.78:1 frame a buoyant and energetic feel. Sadly, I also detected hints of negligible banding around the shadows of walls and the faces of characters, and there were a couple instances of very mild aliasing along certain patterns and designs of the spooky clothing. Overall, it’s an attractive high-def presentation which the kids will surely enjoy.
