The teenage DJ is observing his neighbor Nebbercracker on the other side of their street in the suburb that destroys tricycles of children that trespass his lawn. When DJ’s parents travel on the eve of Halloween and the abusive nanny Zee stays with him, he calls his clumsy best friend Chowder to play basketball. But when the ball falls in Nebbercracker’s lawn, the old man has a siege, and soon they find that the house is a monster. Later the boys rescue the smart Jenny from the house and the trio unsuccessfully tries to convince the babysitter, her boyfriend Bones and two police officers that the haunted house is a monster, but nobody believes on them. The teenagers ask their video-game addicted acquaintance Skull how to destroy the house, and they disclose its secret on the Halloween night.

  • The second film to be released in REAL D’s digital 3D format.
  • The film used 3D motion capture techniques to digitally record the physical performances of the actors before “skinning” them with their animated forms.
  • The motto on the police car reads “We Wanna Help”.
  • For the Italian version of the film, Bones and Skull have been renamed “Punk” and “Freak”.
  • The wallpaper in DJ’s room is the same design as Woody’s shirt in “Toy Story”.
  • Homages to various Stephen King stories abound. The idea of a house that comes alive and eats people can be found in the third installment of King’s “Dark Tower” series, “The Wastelands”. And while in the house’s basement, Chowder shines his flashlight on a mechanical monkey much like the one found in King’s short story “The Monkey”, collected in “Skeleton Crew”.
  • There are several references to both Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis’ films in ‘Monster House’: The toy monkey from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). Trees that come alive is derived from Poltergeist (1982). The floating leaf at the beginning of the film is a nod to the falling feather from Forrest Gump (1994). And the basketball brand-named Wilson is a reference to the volleyball of the same name from Cast Away (2000).
  • For the German version of the film, Bones, Skull and Chowder have been renamed “Punk”, “Freak” and “Ketchup”.
  • The first animated film to be made using Sony’s animation rendering software.
