This movie was surprisingly great. I wasn't planning on liking it since the freaky fusion dolls kind of bug me. But it's a GREAT movie! And the message is even better. It includes a whole host of Monster High characters, and really highlights their personalities. This movie teaches us about who Frankie's grandfather is (Victor Frankenstein), and we learn about Robecca Steam's dad (Hexiciah Steam) and his great importance to Monster High School. It is a really interesting movie, and it also explains the dual hybrids like Nathan Rot, Avia Trotter, Bonita Femur, and more. My daughter's favorite character is Sirena Von Boo, although she plays a minor role. The ghouls learn about accepting each other's differences (which is already a main theme for Monster High). I really liked this movie. I wish we would have purchased it instead of renting it. It will make the christmas gift list, for certain.
