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.

Delivers the freaky/funny goods for audiences of all ages.

A plodding and unimaginative screenplay.

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 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.
