Monster High: The Movie

Based on the 2010 doll franchise that's spawned various web-series, novels, and video games made over the years, Monster High: The Movie introduces us to half-human Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Harris) who after being sheltered in the human world is now a Freshman at Monster High where she must hide her human heritage or face expulsion which becomes more difficult when her monster side begins disappearing during times of stress.

The made-for-TV movie features mostly minimal makeup for its monster characters (simple horns, wigs, and makeup) raging from vampires to mummies dealing with monster-tinged teenage problems. While not crushing over a cute boy or hiding her secret, Clawdeen bursts into various song and dance numbers featuring other members of the school throughout the movie.

With the help of her new roommates Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot) and Draculaura (Nayah Damasen), Clawdeen begins investigating former student Eddy Hyde hoping the school's most-famous half-human student who may have left an answer to her problems (not realizing the real answer is to embrace both halves of her personality). Other characters include mean girl Cleo De Nile (Jy Prishkulnik), the ex of Clawdeen's crush Deuce Gorgon (Case Walker), Marci T. House as Headmistress Bloodgood, and Kyle Selig as apparently the only teacher whose classes our characters attend.
