Monster House Movie Review

Monster House Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Halloween has come early this year with the spooky new animated feature Monster House. Find out if it's hauntingly hilarious of laughably lame. Check out Kizworld's review of this film - complete with pictures and trivia.

Halloween has come early this year in the new animated feature voiced by Hollywood heavyweights Kathleen Turner and Steve Buscemi, along with indie it-kids Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jon Heder. Find out if this film is hauntingly hilarious or laughably lame.

Monster House - There Goes the Neighborhood

It doesn't take long after the neighborhood tyrant, Nebbercracker, collapses on his lawn, for three kids to discover that his house is a living, breathing monster (with a penchant for eating those who annoy it). DJ, Chowder and Jenny decide that if no one else will save the 'hood, they'll have to take matters into their own hands. That's going to mean going inside the heart of the beast. But, if they go in, will they ever make it out?

Monster House - Heart of Darkness

DJ, Chowder and Jenny are going to have to overcome some serious hurdles in order to save the neighborhood from its monster menace including bumbling cops, a bratty babysitter and their own in-fighting. The battle heats up as Halloween night draws in and the threesome face the showdown of a lifetime that will leave them questioning everything they thought they knew about the Monster House!

Monster House - Bottom Line

The best thing about Monster House is its state-of-the art motion-capture animation. The technique requires real actors to be filmed in a black box before computer-animating them. The look is a bit like Polar Express - but way better. And the story is pretty wicked too. The film mixes all the elements of a good horror flick - death, the supernatural, spooky basements - while still maintaining its comic edge (and even a little romance). It's the perfect spooky addition to your summer.

Hm.. Probably the Boy Wonder/Robin from Batman, with Ron Weasley from Harry Potter at a close second.

"I Love it When You Cry" by Steve Aoki and Moxie. The music is really good and maybe unique. Also, the lyrics are a little stranger than the usual love song, and weird songs are my favorite. :P
