Editorial Reviews

Even for a 12-year old, D.J. Walters has a particularly overactive imagination. He is convinced that his haggard and crabby neighbor Horace Nebbercracker, who terrorizes all the neighborhood kids, is responsible for Mrs. Nebbercracker's mysterious disappearance. Any toy that touches Nebbercracker's property, promptly disappears, swallowed up by the cavernous house in which Horace lives. D.J. has seen it with his own eyes! But no one believes him, not even his best friend, Chowder. What everyone does not know is D.J. is not imagining things. Everything he's seen is absolutely true and it's about to get much worse than anything D.J could have imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Old House October 17, 2006
Format:DVD
As studio execs continue to milk the cash cow that is the CG animated feature, MONSTER HOUSE is refreshing on two fronts; firstly, we see a departure from cutesy animals/toys in peril, and secondly, it's good!

I would imagine that fellow kids-at-heart who grew up in the eighties with INDIANA JONES and THE GOONIES will feel right at home with D.J., Chowder, and Penny; all characters we've met and identified with before in other movies. The focus is on story and character interaction, and thankfully there's a complete lack of "Gee! Look what we can do with computer graphics!" We're not subjected to nauseating shaky-cam and rapid cuts of other recent kid flicks - this movie looks beautiful, and the animators allow you to appreciate it. Not surprisingly, the most interesting characters are Nebbercracker and The House. There's a good story here, ultimately with unexpected warmth and heart.

Is it aimed at the right age group? That's debatable. More sensitive kids may find it too scary. It's loud at times, there's a few in-your-face frights, and the tension builds quickly. Beyond the genre setting, there are a number of more mature themes present which parents should be aware of, notably alcohol usage and sexual themes when the babysitter and her boyfriend are on-screen. I could knock off a star for these points given the target audience, but they didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the movie.

I highly recommend MONSTER HOUSE to animation lovers, big kids at heart, and little kids with a big kid to hide behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The House is Alive With the Sound of Screaming July 21, 2006
I just saw this film today (after missing out on a sold out sneak preview last weekend) and the increased level of expectation was met with one of the most rewarding moviegoing experiences I've had in the last five years. Monster House gives us one doozy of a spooky antagonist, a decrepit domicile of living malice that gobbles errant toys and passerby with equal ingenuity and viciousness.

The house is plain old MEAN, and for really small children perhaps a little too scary to take in a gigantic room filled with strangers and darkness. But for those of us who are too grown up for a nighlight this is perfect, creepy entertainment.

The same motion capture technology used to create The Polar Express (a film which I have still yet to see) is a very interesting and appropriate choice for this film, where the only truly fantastic element is the demented house that will not suffer trespassers. It works so well because the eerie realism that depicts the characters is so starkly contrasted with the insanity that ultimately drives the Monster House to be, well, so monstrous.

Now I fully expected to be entertained by the antics of the house, but I didn't expect there to be much of a story. Again I was pleasantly surprised by what I think is a script that I believe is just as worthy of an Oscar nomination as the script for The Incredibles was. There is, beneath the floorboards of this film, more heart than horror. A tale of love, retribution, acceptance, forgiveness, and ultimately letting go.

Monster House is, beyond a doubt, one of the coolest Horror movies for kids ever made. A Halloween tradition in the making that dares to answer that age old question: Can a house be haunted?

The answer is a resounding yes with a disquieting post script.

Whatever is haunted may also be hungry!

5.0 out of 5 stars There Were Monster Houses When I Was Growing Up April 23, 2007
Format:DVD
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 and noticed that this old man is hiding something and it doesn't DJ long to find out what it is.

While playing basketball with his friend Chowder their ball gets away from them and lands on Mr. Nebbercracker's lawn. Dj tries to get it back and before he can get it Nebbercracker pops up and grabs DJ and lifts him up to really scare him. Nebbercracker quickly turns pale and falls on top of DJ. Of course DJ now thinks that he killed Nebbercracker and feels awful but while paramedics are carrying him away he drops a key, DJ notices it and picks it up. After Nebbercracker is taken away strange things start to happen, the house starts to move and make sounds. That night the house eats DJ's babysitters' boyfriend by luring him with a kite Nebbercracker took from him years before. The next day the house ate a dog and tried to eat a girl scout that DJ and Chowder are quite fond of. They quickly save the girl and before you know it the three team up on an adventure to destroy the house before it does anymore harm.

Monster House is one weird but super cool movie that I'm sure not just kids but families period will enjoy. It has an ability to keep the interest of even the most energetic kid and a very original story that is exciting.

More video noises than usual for a animated Blu-ray movie?
As I am watching NOW on bluray - for around the 6th time as this is a very under appreciated movie - I wondered about this very issue enough to go to amazon and see if I wasn;t alone on this view.
There is FAR TOO much noise, artifacts etc than compared to most CGI animated blurays.
