"TWO VERY BIG THUMBS UP!"
-EBERT AND ROEPER
Young DJ always knew there was something strange about the old Nebbercracker house across the street. When the house becomes a living, breathing monster, DJ enlists his pals Chowder and Jenny to learn the secret that keeps the house alive. Suddenly, they find themselves in a hair-raising battle with an unstoppable entity and must save the neighborhood from total devastation. Robert Zemeckis (The Polar Express, Back To The Future Trilogy) and Steven Spielbert (E.T., Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones Trilogy) present MONSTER HOUSE - the movie FOX-TV's Shawn Edwards hails as "The best animated feature of the year! It's so much fun you'll want to watch it again and again. "
An interesting concept - children's animation mixed with horror elements - but it falls a little short of expectations. That's not to say that it isn't an entertaining film, it's just not anything spectacular.
Rated PG (MPAA)
