The Scooby-Doo Project (1999) Dirs. Chris “Casper” Kelly, Larry Morris, Steve Patrick

I can’t overstate how important Scooby-Doo is to horror fans. For most us, watching a group of teens and their pet great dane solve mysteries is the gateway drug to the genre. And you can’t really fault what works, Scooby-Doo, in various incarnations, has been around since 1969. In 1999, after the HUGE success of the Blair Witch Project everyone was making parodies. Fortunately, the “found footage” monster hunt style was a perfect fit for Mystery Incorporated and Cartoon Network. The Scooby-Doo Project was made and released as a part of Cartoon Network’s Scooby-Doo marathon during October of 1999. It is goofy, and spooky, and a perfect mash-up.
