5/5

Review

Jake Kopronica’s directorial venture, a short comedy horror co-written with Celeste Blandon, is a delightful homage to the beloved ‘Scooby-Doo’ franchise. The film unfolds with the mysterious disappearance of Susie Q (Taylor Abigail Rice) after a peculiar incident at a lake, piquing the interest of four quirky friends, portrayed by Kopronica, Blandon, Noelle Taylor, and Jackson Medley.

Embracing a distinct 70s vibe, the short captures the essence of the original animated series with its witty dialogue and offbeat scenes. Despite its low-budget constraints, the film excels in cinematic cinematography, commendable lighting, and production design, creating a visually engaging experience. The ensemble cast delivers respectable performances, striking a balance between humor and mystery, effectively channeling the spirit of the animated series.

As the friends embark on unraveling the truth behind Susie’s disappearance, the narrative takes an entertaining turn with the introduction of the quirky suspect, Crazy Man Coombs (Jack Wiley). The film doesn’t take itself too seriously, serving as a live-action parody of ‘Scooby-Doo’ and delivering a light-hearted, easy-viewing experience filled with nostalgia.

Kopronica and Blandon’s collaboration successfully captures the charm of the original series, making this short a well-crafted and enjoyable piece of comedic horror. Despite its limited resources, the film’s creative execution and fun-loving spirit make it a commendable addition to the world of fan-inspired adaptations.
