FANGORIA UNLEASH SCOOBY MONSTERS

FANGORIA spent some time hanging out on the Vancouver set of SCOOBY-DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED a couple of days ago (Day 61 of 72) - gawking at the rather incredible and elaborate sets from returning production designer Bill (MONKEYBONE) Boes - and got a sneak peek at the Coolsonian Museum ? a new museum being opened up at the beginning of the movie by Patrick Wisely (Seth Green) to celebrate the careers of Mystery, Inc. aka Fred (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Velma (Linda Cardellini), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Scooby-Doo.

To fill out the museum, Wisely has put up the 'costumes' of many of the men-in-masks-monsters the Scoobies (original Scoobies - not BUFFY-led Scoobies. Oh, wait - Sarah Michelle, Seth Green...oh, nevermind) have captured through the years. We wandered around to the various stand-ups and saw a wide variety of well-researched and realized Scooby villains from the cartoon now in three-dimensional form. On the little bronze placards in front of each of the costumes were drawings of how the costume looked in the cartoon series as well as a short breakdown of how Mystery, Inc. busted the crook, the set-up that got them there and who the crook ended up being (basically, a three-paragraph breakdown of the episode the monster appeared in).

'Well, the ones in the museum are supposed to be the ones from the original show,' explains Boes about the monsters. 'That's how we start the movie off ? 'Hey, remember these guys? Remember the 10,000 Volt Ghost? Remember the Miner 49er?' So, at the beginning, everybody goes, 'Oh, yeah!''

The plot of the movie has a villainous masked figure stealing these costumes, however, and putting them into something called 'the Monster Hive' where they're actually animated with a special 'goop' into real monsters, not just men in suits. 'When the Monster Hive kicks into gear and starts spewing out monsters, of course we had to do new and improved monsters,' Boes says. 'We basically built costumes ? some of them are costumes that we're enhancing with CG and five of them are all CG. All of them have this stuff called 'Randomonium' that is a chemical the writer, James Gunn, came up with. They're all made out of Randomonim so they're all going to be dripping this oozing green stuff. So, some of them have green eyes ? the Pterodactyl is going to be glowing green ? so it's a theme throughout.'

As for the CG ghosts, Boes has just started working on those as they will be created during the long post-production schedule that begins after the movie wraps. 'We're starting to model the CG creatures and the 10,000 Volt Ghost looks awesome!' Boes exclaims. 'It looks like Monster of the Id from FANTASTIC PLANET. It's unbelievably cool.' As for Boes' favorite monster, he says, 'I'm into the Pterodactyl ? I don't know why!'

Some of the monsters Fango took a gander of were:

The Mortician
The Highlander Ghost
Pterodactyl Ghost
The Headless Horseman
Zen Tuo (one of our favorites ? from the Chinatown episode where Daphne gets kidnapped early)
Cotton Candy Glob
Werewolf
Ghost of Doctor Coffin (covered in blood!)
Black Knight
10,000 Volt Ghost
The Warrior
Rambling Ghost
The Phantom
The Warlock of Anthos
The Creeper (wow!)
The Ghost of Merlin
Chickenstein (yes, Chickenstein)
The Mermaid

In the art department, Fangoria also got a look at designs for the Skeleton Men, the Miner 49er, and the eerie-looking Ghost of Captain Cutler - the man in the deep sea diver suit that comes out of the water right at Shaggy and Scoob at a point in the movie. So, unlike SCOOBY-DOO, SCOOBY DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED will have no shortage of classic monsters from the famed TV series.
