Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright is the twentieth film in the direct-to-video series of Scooby-Doo films. It was released on August 20, 2013, by Warner Premiere.

The Mystery Inc. crew head to Chicago for a talent show, called Talent Star, hosted by Brick Pimiento, where songwriting duo Fred and Daphne are finalists with some high hopes.

Upon arrival, they learn that the opera house in which the show will be held is being terrorised by a Phantom, who is intensely lauding one of the finalists to win, Christine, a spoiled girl whose noisy parents are no more polite than her. Fred and Daphne also befriend one of the finalists, Emma Gale, a violinist. Not to be left out, Scooby and Shaggy decide to show Pimiento a juggling act, which they are betting will take the contest by storm.

However, after Pimiento states his belief that ‘juggling stinks’, throughout the film, the two continually approach Pimiento and show him numerous terrible impromptu acts, hoping that he lets them onto the show.

Not long after checking in for the talent show, the Phantom appears in the opera house and Fred, Daphne and Velma attempt to catch him using the surveillance cameras, but are unsuccessful due to the Phantom’s ability to seemingly appear in multiple places at once…


Capsule review:
Stage Fright is a surprisingly sly and amusing take on some of the Scooby-Doo clichés, although this time Daphne admits she loves Fred! Animation and humour are top-notch and despite a few dodgy brief songs, this is also a welcome addition to the Phantom of the Opera canon.

Other reviews:
“Clearly the story is just a rip-off of the classic The Phantom of the Opera, fused with overtones of American Idol and other reality-based music shows. Frankly, I couldn’t have cared less who the Phantom was; no points for guessing if he’s ‘unmasked’ during the final moments of the movie.” DVD Verdict

“In the end, even with the little twist the writers put on the story, Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright is basically more of the same from the Scooby-line, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Between these DTV movies and the television show, the series has sprung new life and found a new audience… ” Movieman’s Guide to the Movies


“… definitely worth the price of purchase, even if you’re not a fan of the character. It’s loaded with laughs, great music, and everything that makes a Scooby mystery worth checking out.” The Other View
