Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

The spooky shadows and eerie creaking of a rickety old house are brought to life via lush CGI in Monster House. A young boy named DJ has suspicions about the house across the street and the cranky old man (voiced by Steve Buscemi, Fargo) who lives there. When the old man has a heart attack and is carried away by an ambulance, DJ thinks the danger is over. Unfortunately, as he, his friend Chowder, and a candy-selling prep-school girl named Jenny discover, the house itself has plans--plans that include eating all the kids who'll be trick-or-treating that Halloween night. Monster House begins with some deliciously creepy scenes that will send chills down children's spines (and may be too intense for younger viewers); animated movies rarely make such effective use of what isn't being shown. The animation is vivid and detailed (though CGI still has a ways to go in capturing the full range of human facial expressions). But like most horror movies, the anticipation of horror is much more exciting than the horror itself; as the secrets of Monster House are revealed, the movie's thrills unravel. The noisy explosions at the end aren't half as much fun as the slow twitches of a few blades of grass in the movie's elegant beginning. --Bret Fetzer

This was by far the most fun I had at the cinema all year! A great treat for everyone. I didnt know much about the film when it came out. All I knew was Mr Speilberg had a hand in its creation.

So I went along with the knowledge that most of the animated films this year were a bit rubbish. But I have to say this was a very pleasant surprise!

Great story and characters, and some of the most stunning effects of the year, this will sweep you up into its world and not let go until the very end. Complete with in-jokes and sly nods to the old adventure films (most obviously the Goonies), this was pure entertainment from start to finish!

Buy and enjoy!!

I would give this 3D Bluray 5 Stars but for the price and lack of new features. You already know that this film is a 5 star classic.

A standard Bluray is expensive enough but 3D Bluray is very expensive all things considered.

So when you realise that there are NO new special features on this disc except two 3D trailers for Open Season and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs it tends to make the £16.00 hit hurt a little.

You can watch this Bluray in 2D or 3D so you aren't restricted to only watching the 3D version if you don't have enough glasses to go around.

The actual 3D effect in the film is fairly subtle, no pop out in your face moments, it is mainly a depth affair.

However there are one or two eye popping moments where the 3D effect really does shine, the part where D.J. has his nightmare in his bedroom looks fantastic, and the last 10 minute sequence where the protagonist's battle the Monster House looks amazing, especially when the House crosses the road from left to right chasing the children, awesome.

I am baffled that considering how much the movie/electrical goods industry wants 3D to take off that they are releasing 3D films at such a slow pace, and with no new added features to really tempt even hardcore film enthusiasts to make a 2nd purchase I can't see how 3D is going to take off. SONY and Disney etc need to release many more 3D films very soon and with more special feature benefits or their 3D dreams may end up being nightmares.

Format: DVD
A young boy just heading into puberty spies on his elderly neighbour, who spends his time terrorizing any nippers who venture near his house,and keeps a log of all the old mans activities. The house begins to take on it's own,(unpleasant), personality and soon our young hero, his porky mate and a girl who nearly gets taken by the house team up to do something about it.

As CGI cartoons have become more popular so the storylines have dragged and the humour been stretched wafer thin. Lets be honest we really don't need another pack of wisecracking animals teaching us all 'just to get along' and superb graphics are no big whoop anymore. Which is where 'Monster house' scores so highly, yes it's a cliched old story from any old haunted house movie, but the characters are funny, lifelike and likeable. The script is much sharper than you would expect and the various twists and turns keep the viewer glued.

The animation is of a far better standard than I expected, what it lacks in Pixar style fine detail it more than makes up for in atmosphere. The people aren't that detailed but their expressions are spot on and scenery has a dreamlike, 50's americana style feel to it, no computers,no mobile phones,no modern referances with a knowing nod to the adults.

In the end it all takes a bit of a lurch into daftness but this doesn't detract much and all in all it's a very enjoyable 80 minutes that both children and adults will enjoy throughout.

The extras are fine,( commentary, docs, a picture gallery that is well worth a look etc etc),. The sound is good with some nice rear speaker action and clear dialogue but the picture can be variable, grainy in places and yet clear as a bell in others, either way it's not awful.

If you're bored with animals breaking out of their zoo/farm/countryside then this is well worth trying. It's possibly a little scary for the pre-schoolers but everyone else will enjoy.

What a pleasure it was to watch this. The animation was top class and the voice overs done superbly. Spielberg has really put his touch on this. The story is about a boy who watches a house owned and guarded by a mean old man who everyone hates.

I would recommend this to anyone however for those with very young children beware as I can guarentee it will keep the kids up with renditions of " MUM the house is gonna come and eat me " allnight long. Trust me on this one I KNOW !!!

I didn't know what to expect, but I must say I found it quite enjoyable. There was a lot of talk before the movie. People were saying that it will be too scary for the little kids, but not adult enough to capture older kids attention.

I can see it being quite frightening at times for the little ones, but of the kids in the theater its not like I heard any of them screaming mommy. I don't know how well the movie will do with kids, but from an adult's perspective, its definitely worth a viewing.

The best part of the movie definitely has to be the characters. Each were extremely well thought out and put together. They did a fantastic job of matching right voices with the right characters. Characters facial expressions were amazing. You'll find yourself laughing at things they say and do quite a lot.

The animation looks great. They certainly aren't ground breaking. But they fit the movie well. However, I will say that some scenes looked quite amazing.

If you are looking for a fun, clean movie with plenty of laughs and chuckles, this is definitely one you don't want to miss!
