Screenwriter Dan Harmon wasn't happy with the final product. He claimed that Director Gil Kenan and Steven Spielberg made the movie scarier than what it intended and claimed that their adding of Constance's soul taking over the house and attacking people made no sense. His friend Kelly Oxford's daughter Salinger was very scared by the film, so Harmon wrote her an apology letter saying that Kenan was a "hack" and Spielberg was a "moron". The letter ended with "And next time Monster House is on, just remember that the guy that wrote it told you it was dumb." See more »
When the kids are in the back of the police car yelling at the police as they approach the house their voices are muffled as if completely enclosed in a car despite the front, driver-side window being open and a metal grate separating the front and back of the police car. See more »
Monster House was a perfect combination of kid-friendliness, horror, action and adventure. When I first walked into the theater I thought it would be "kiddy" because I went to see it with my younger cousin. You know how most animated movies are somewhat funny and about teamwork and working together or teaches life lessons or morals but I actually came to find that this movie was more scary than comical or ethical. I actually got into it. I actually ended up liking it more than my cousin. Some of the content is for older kids but it's non-stop action and the momentum of the story line never stops. And the characters seem so real. 2 thumbs up. I definitely recommend it.
