Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow (2015/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: D Main Program: B+

Two kid follow their divorced father to their Aunt Cly's farm for Thanksgiving, only to learn of a mysterious legendary monster in the enchanted woods, the Howling Hoodoo. As they search for the legend they must save the farm from crooked turkey farmer who wants to steal their farm. With a little help from family, friends and a bit of magic, can two kids save Thanksgiving and the farm?

In Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow (2015), the pair find out they are going to their wayward Aunt Cly's farm after their father's divorce. Only to find out everything is vegan, organic, no TV and no internet (yes no wi-fi ...the horror, the horror). That is until they find out about the Howling Hoodoo has a ten thousand dollar prize for capturing a picture of it. Turns out the creature are musical muppets and they love eating rocks, but when the farm gets threatened by a crooked turkey farmer and his henchmen it will take the family (and their new friends) to come together to save the farm.

The late Jim Henson's company does it again. This was a family friendly and fun movie with cute monsters. It was like a mix of Sesame Street with Scooby-Doo, those darn kids solving the mystery, stopping the the bad guys and saving the day. It's a mix of good feelings, holiday sharing and bring the family together. Even the anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are really good for DVD, leaving the mystery, why no Blu-ray?
