animated movie Vampire Hunter D © MOVIC
Vampire Hunter D
Rated it: 3

Vampire Hunter D is a MOVIC film from 1985. The movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where vampires rule over the peasants with monsters and mutants to do their bidding. Doris is a peasant woman that had gotten bitten by a vampire. The only was to cure her is to kill the vampire who bit her, so she hires Vampire Hunter D.

The animation is pretty good in this one, though I noticed a few odd things here and there. MOVIC did I good job mixing together the old and new elements of the world. Somehow, they manage to have guns and electric whips that don't look out of place in medieval Transylvania (at least, that's what it looks like).

I should mention that I watched a version that everyone spoke English in. I don't know how good the translation was, but the voice acting was good enough and the words matched the characters lip movement pretty well.

Vampire Hunter D is enjoyable. If you get the chance, check it out.

The Case of the Stuttering Pig
Rated it: 3.5

The Case of the Stuttering Pig is a Warner Bros. short. Porky Pig's Uncle Solomon has died and bequeathed all his property to his nephews and nieces. However, if something were to happen to them, it all goes to Lawyer Goodwill. Goodwill decides to help them along after taking some Jekyll and Hyde Juice. The animation is good as usual. The gags are pretty good. The whole business with the guy in the third row was actually pretty good especially at the end.

The Skeleton Dance

The Skeleton Dance is an entertaining short by Disney. Like all of the Silly Symphonies, the animation is based around a piece of music. In this case, they has it take place in a graveyard with four dancing skeletons.

The short was entertaining enough. The animation is some of Disney's earlier stuff using rubber hose animation, but it still looks pretty good. It's not necessarily worse than Disney's other stuff, just different. The Skeleton Dance is definitely worth a look.

Count Duckula
Rated it: 3
posted: Oct 27, 2008
Count Duckula is a show about a vampire duck. However, Duckula doesn't want to be like his forebearers. He's a vegetarian and what's to go into show business. His butler, Igor, constantly tries to get him to be more vampire-like while Nanny doesn't understand anything and is constantly breaking things. Each episode, Duckula uses Castle Duckula to travel to a new location where he gets into some sort of trouble. The villain that appears most often is VonGoosewing, a vampire hunter.

The show is actually very clever. They aren't above borrowing ideas for their predecessors, though a times they are a bit to blatant about it. In the first episode, there's a gag that was taken almost directly from Abbot and Costello.

The animation is a little off. It can get a bit jerky at times and some things don't move the way they should. It doesn't make the show unwatchable, but you still notice it.

Overall, the show is pretty good. The writing more than makes up for any flaws in the animation. It's definitely worth checking out.

Broom-Stick Bunny
Rated it: 3
posted: Oct 23, 2008
Broom-Stick Bunny features everyone's favorite rabbit, Bugs Bunny. He goes trick or treating and happens upon the home of Witch Hazel, who was the ugliest witch of all until Bugs showed up in his costume.

There's plenty of laughs, but overall the short isn't that memorable. Still, this is a good one to pull out around Halloween to get you into the spirit of things.
