“After the Mystery Inc. gang goofed up a case and nabbed an innocent man, they’re forced into early retirement from crime-solving. It’s not long however, before their old friend Vincent Van Ghoul needs help and pulls the team right back into action.

The gang has unfinished business they must tend to, which involves catching a ghost that previously got away. It all happened one summer while Velma and Freddy were away at camp. Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and Daphne secretly hunted down twelve of the world’s spookiest ghosts but failed to catch the evilest one of them all… the 13th ghost.

Now the elusive spook is wreaking havoc. Vincent needs help having him captured and confined to the chest of demons, a box that contains the other 12 captured ghosts. With the 13th ghost still on the loose, the gang will have to come out of retirement and finish the job once and for all. The chest however, is now located somewhere in a remote village in the Himalayas.

Determined to help Vincent, the gang sets out on one of their most thrilling adventures yet! Bundle up and get ready for the icy slopes of the Himalayan mountains, chilling car chases, crystal balls and spine-tingling spells in this terrifyingly fun original movie!”


“Thick slices of filler occupy plenty of the movie’s 80-minute pie. Perhaps it’s appropriate since they weren’t around for the first team-up with Vincent, but you could entirely excise Fred and Velma, who are off on their own much of the time, and not have their absence affect the plot. We also don’t need two separate scenes of the other four friends fleeing from an avalanche, yet we have to bear them both anyway.” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt

“All the bullet point tropes are here, from flimsy final explanations to a music-accompanied chase scene while bookending the series that was never properly finished. There is an avalanche scene which goes on far too long and a couple of logic leaps, but nothing too out of scope for Mystery Inc.” Movie Crypt
