Goofs

When Pinocchio runs through the door after being scared by Shrek, a small gap is seen above where his head went through. However, when the camera cuts to the other side of the door, the gap is no longer there but is immediately created when a small piece of the door falls off. See more »

Quotes

Shrek: Well, it looks like it's just you and me.
Donkey: Go ahead, Shrek. There ain't nothing that can scare me.
Shrek: Well, then I guess there's nothing left to do but wait for the ghost.
Donkey: What ghost?
Shrek: Lord Farquaad's ghost. And as I recall, you had a hand in his untimely demise.
Donkey: Aw, come on. Everyone knows ghosts are just an urban legend.
Shrek: Is it?

Brilliant
15 April 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Scared Shrekless is a brilliant Halloween special, of the two Dreamworks specials(the other being the Monsters vs Aliens one) this is the better one of the two. Gorgeously animated(the backgrounds are always colourful yet wonderfully atmospheric at times too) with creepy music, hilarious, witty writing, inspired storytelling, all our favourite characters at the top of their game(especially Puss and Gingerbread) and great voice acting(even with the replacement of Eddie Murphy for Donkey's voice). The special is made up of three parodies, the best being the parody of Bride of Frankenstein with Gingerbread, hysterically funny, full of creepy atmosphere and often cute. Shrek's Exorcist parody was also amusing and effective in its creepiness, if not quite as terrifying as the real thing(understandably). Puss and Donkey's Psycho parody was good, it was funny with great voice work and storytelling, only let down by a couple of Donkey's comic interruptions, occasionally coming across as forced. Overall though, Scared Shrekless is brilliant, if you love the first two films(I do) or love horror(the more I see the more I highly appreciate it) you will love it. 9/10 Bethany Cox
