Ghouls Rule, while being set at Halloween is really more about interpersonal relationships. While this may discourage some viewers, the path taken makes for a more entertaining story all around. Unlike many other animated films, Ghouls Rule follows a couple of different storylines throughout as many of the teenage staples us parents grew up watching.
Don’t get me wrong, Pretty in Pink or 90210, this is not but, many of the same themes run throughout the short film. If this is your first experience with the animated Monster High, the oversized heads and Sims-like animation might take a bit of getting used to but, more than likely even the adults won’t hate it.
The Monster High: Ghouls Rule DVD does also contain a few extras. The DVD sports three previously unreleased short web episodes; Flowers for Slow Moe, I Scream, You Scream, and No Ghouls Allowed. If you enjoyed the movie, you should find them entertaining. The widescreen presentation appears to be a digital direct transfer and surprisingly offers English, French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound audio. Subtitles are also available in all three languages. The total running time is about an hour and 12 minutes.
