Comments: The super-hero group made up of Titanium Rex, American Ranger, Black Saturn, Cooch and Robobot. The opening scenes as the cast names are shown has some scary music and the imaginary in the background is perfect for Halloween.
So Halloween night has the members each going on separate outings. Each has their own adventure. A party, trick or treating, haunted house and an exorcism will have you riveted.
Things keep getting worse for our heroes and the suspense builds as does the horror.
The animation could not be better. The attention to detail is easy to see. The characters are all brought to life through the animation and voices that fit them so well.
The League of Freedom certainly knows how to celebrate Halloween. You get weird, scary, deranged, beautiful women, a monster so everything you need for Halloween and of course Cooch has candy.
