Movie Review: Girl VS. Monster

Skylar finds out that her parents are monster hunters after she accidentally releases some monsters from a secret containment chamber; so she and her techno friends must recapture all the monsters and also save her mom and dad from these monsters who are out for revenge.
~My Thoughts~
If you've been following The Harvesters blog tour then you'll know that one of my guilty pleasures is watching Disney channel Halloween original movies. Girl VS. Monster has to be up there as one of the top ones they have created, now a days haha.
Yes, sometimes it can be cheesy but a little cheese is just fine with me. And yeah, now a days there always have to be a couple of singing scenes in Disney movies so you'll be rolling your eyes at it for sure. Though this doesn't mean the songs aren't catchy, it's just really "why must all Disney stars be singers" kind of thing. Other than these two things, this is quite an enjoyable movie. One I can't seem to get enough of too! haha
Skylar is a regular girl that's just trying to get through high school. However she's a girl that has no fears (yeah, who doesn't wish to be fearless!). She can walk through graveyards like she isn't surrounded by dead people, she can jump up into the air to fix a sign then somersault when she falls back to the ground, and she can face her crush as if it isn't the hardest thing to do for us girls. So she's pretty kick ass.
Sadly she looses this fearlessness. In an attempt to leave her house, as she has a curfew every Halloween, she finds out her parents have been keeping a secret from her (not a shocker there). The reason why she's never had to worry about fears before is because her parents are monster hunters (love her parents by the way!) and they've captured her monster when she was a baby. These monsters are fears and they live off of the fears people have so since her parents caught her monster she's lived a fear free life. Until now.
Overall this is a fun filled movie and one perfect for families. Especially families with young children. So if you're looking for a good Halloween movie to watch with the family then this is it! It's funny, adventurous, a little spooky with of course a deeper meaning to it at the end. An enjoyable movie to just get lost within. So grab a blanket, a bowl of caramel popcorn, and relax as you fall into this monstrous world.
