Trick or Treat Spooktacular Collection: 13 Haunting Tales DVD Review

*This is a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mill Creek Ent., 150 minutes; $9.98; Amazon

Now available on DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment is Trick or Treat Spooktacular Collection: 13 Haunting Tales. As an added bonus, the DVD comes with a digital code that can be redeemed at www.millcreekent.com/redeem.

Yep! It's that time of year when you'll be finding many different Halloween themed DVD titles in the stores, and many of these will most likely be in the $5 bins!

Trick or Treat Spooktacular Collection: 13 Haunting Tales features four Casper shorts (1945-1954) and 13 other cartoons, which three of them were produced by Fleischer Studios in the 1930s, and the others are part of the Storybook Series. The shorts running time spans between 9 to 15 minutes.


The shorts on the single disc are:


Casper
  • The Friendly Ghost
  • There's a Good Boo Tonight
  • Boo Moon
  • A Haunting We Will Go

Other Cartoons
  • The Cobwell Hotel
  • The Fresh Vegetable Mystery
  • Magic Mummy
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Ghost in the Shed
  • Noises in the Night
  • Misunderstood Monsters
  • Three Golden Hairs
  • The Boy Who Couldn't Shiver

Final Thoughts
If you're looking for some low-budget, old-school animation, then look no more, as Trick or Treat Spooktacular Collection: 13 Haunting Tales is the right DVD for you!

All the shorts have been transferred on to DVD from very poor prints, so the picture and sound quality aren't the best. 

The only good shorts on the DVD are the Casper cartoons. I didn't care much for the others. 

Why am I giving the DVD three out five? 

Like I already mentioned, I liked the Casper shorts, which is the only reason why I'm rating it so high.
