I suspect, and hope that "Monster House" will become a Halloween classic, because it's too fun to be forgotten.

It's too dark for the kiddies, while not having enough of an adult flavor to reach an older audience.

The most troubling element of the film is its conclusion ... which comes to rather alarming conclusions about how to deal with a resentful social outcast.

A plodding and unimaginative screenplay.

Upstage Magazine

A cleverly conceived, kid-friendly horror flick with a lot going for it, mixing clever asides in a thrill-a-minute roller coaster ride on the way to a finale with a satisfying send-off.

Monster House doesn't give specifics about when it takes place, but I swear it must be the '80's.

A visual treat, with characters that look like caricatures and a house that's as much of a monster as anything Hollywood has given us.

Set on Halloween, the script is original and nicely creepy, even when the boys are joined by a redhead named Jenny.

Now Playing Magazine

In an era of meticulously muggy, corporate-vetted movies designed to launch possible franchises before the first film has even released, Monster House plays pleasingly to audiences of almost any age, driven by a strong sense of wonderment.

A rich, layered and often funny script, with some decent scares, as well as some knowing, hip scenes that satisfy with their edgy moments and lines.

...amid the technical dazzle, the spunky juvenile protagonists give the film an unlikely anchor.

Monster House may look like the sort of movie that is more or less safe for little kids, but the humour gets a little crude in places.

Here's a conundrum: an animated movie that is pitched at kids but is far more suitable for teenagers and adults.
