Nothing says Halloween like Ogres, Monsters and Kung-fu Pandas! Dreamworks has just released three titles to DVD and Blu-ray on October 15th and just in time for the holiday, Monsters vs. Aliens: Cloning Around and Kung Fu Panda: The Scorpion Sting and Shrek: The Musical!
One of our family traditions, that found its spark from my childhood, is staying up to watch movies on Halloween. I grew up on scary movies and it was one of the only times during the year that we were allowed to rent movies. We’d stay up all night trying to scare ourselves until we passed out and it was some of the best memories I have with my family.
My teen had the horror gene for as long as I could remember, he loves Zombies, but my toddler is more into Monsters and not so much the scary kind. He likes his monsters in bright colors and as silly as he is! So on Halloween we spend the evening and first part of the night watching Family Friendly Halloween movies. The great thing is, Monsters vs. Aliens, Shrek and Kung-Fu Panda are have many of our favorite Dreamworks characters! So even as a horror/zombie/thriller/gore fan, my teen is pretty excited to spend the night watching the films with his little brother.
Monsters vs. Aliens Cloning Around is 3 hours of crazy fun with the extremely amusing characters from Dreamworks hit movie Monsters vs. Aliens. The T.V. Series just began airing in March and Cloning Around includes the first 15 Episodes of the 1st Season. So for those of you that may have missed the air date, this is a great opportunity to catch up!
