2015 October Horror Challenge #45 "Monster High: Ghouls Rule"
Ahhh, Monster High, the series about teenage monsters in high school who are the offspring of famous monsters (Draculaura is the daughter of Dracula, Frankie Stein is the daughter of Frankenstein, Deuce is the son of Medusa, and so gorth). I love these toys, I love these movies, I love that they're a cool and fun way to introduce kids to our horrific horror habit. Love it.
This movie is about Halloween, which has evolved into a day when "normies" (normal people) Torment monsters. The Monster High kids find out that Halloween used to be a day when normal people and monsters celebrated together, and they have to work to stop the hate and return Halloween to its roots, a fun time for everyone, whether monster or human. Sure, it's silly, but it's fun too, and I like that it's cool to like monsters now. Long live Monster High! For the kids who have always liked monsters, we salute you.
