A Modern Day Classic in Every Sense of the Term
   When it comes to the current crop of computer animated feature films, some of the biggest surprises in the industry come from pretty unlikely sources.  Nope, you won’t find the words Disney or Pixar anywhere on this one nor will you find DreamWorks famous kid fishing off the half-moon.  You may discover that Sony Imageworks was involved in the production, Columbia Pictures handles the distribution oh and perhaps you’re familiar with the two executive producers: …

Monster House is one cool flick, especially because it brings so many new things to the table. Monster House is about a mean old man named Mr. Nebbercracker who is constantly shouting at kids to keep away from his house. You automatically get realize that he doesn't like kids but as the movie gets deeper this is actually not the case. The story gets very interesting when a boy named DJ sees something that he maybe shouldn't have seen. He's been watching his neighbor Mr. Nebbercracker for a while …

My husband and I just finished watching the Monster House DVD and it was time well spent!    I'm not going to re-hash the plot which is already printed in the Amazon Editorial Reviews. I will say, though, that the plot is fresh and the story is engrossing! However, I'll tell you some of my impressions of the movie:    1. This film is close to being PG-13. We were going to take our 8 year old son to see this movie but didn't get around to it. I'm glad we didn't! …

Many of the cartoons coming out of Hollywood lately seem to resemble other cartoons, or live action movies released in the similar time period; i.e. Shark's Tale and Finding Nemo, Cars and Talledega Nights, Madagascar and The Wild, etc... But Monster House is quite an exception. Released by neither Dreamworks nor Disney/Pixar, this cartoon features a cast of lesser known stars in a story about a haunted house on a typical suburban street. The house is occupied by an old grouch, Mr. Nebbercracker, …

Pros: Unique Plot     Cons: Not all that scary     This movie is a great movie for the family, although it may really scare some younger kids. In this movie three kids are on a mission to discover why the house across the street seems to be alive. They discover why it is alive, but can they stop it from being so evil.      Recommended:   Yes      Suitability For Children: Suitable for Children Age 9 - 12

I wasn't able to catch this in theater but was able to purchased this DVD yesterday and watch it with my entire family on Halloween night. After viewing this I thought it was good and frightening for the event. My kids were mesmerize buy it while my husband on the other hand was frighten by it (Just kidding). "Monster House" is defiantly good and cool for kids (7 years and up), yet certain to be a hit with grown-ups but defiantly not for the younger tot's. It manages to strike a chord with children …

"Monster House" is a pretty scary film if you're between the ages of five and ten. Below that age demographic, I'd stick with "Mickey's House of Villains" or "Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie." Above that age group, though, this is still a wonderful tale with just enough creeps and spooks to keep older children and adults interested in the story.     It starts out with an adorable little girl triking through the neighborhood. She's sweetly saying hello to the leaves, the fence, …

'Monster House' is literally that. Not just your typical dilapidated haunted house, 12-year old D.J.'s neighbor's home across the street is alive and kicking. This is only discovered when its occupant, Nebbencracker (Steve Buscemi), nearly dies during a nasty confrontation with D.J. He's just as mean as usual, but this time he pays for it. D.J. and his best friend, Chowder, keep vigil from D.J.'s bedroom window with a telescope. And no one believes them. Not their babysitter (Maggie Gyllenhal), …
