Warning: this is real random!
I don't get why Monster House doesn't get more love.
Like that film is actually really good.
Like yeah okay it's not what people expect when watching am animated film. But if you love horror films (which I do!) And you have a kid (which I don't) and want to slowly introduce them into the genre, monster house is it!
It's a family horror film.
It's also a great coming of age story.
The main character DJ is at the awkward age where he's not little anymore but he's also not old yet.
Both the sidecharacters Chowder and later Jenny represent this.
Chowder represents his childhood. The younger part of himself that isn't yet ready to grow up.
While Jenny represents getting older. Learning his sexual growth (always awkward at that age) and just his want to be seen as more mature and adult.
I will admit the animation is not exactly the most beautiful but it's good! Actually it's pretty great, even now. The creators were trying something different. Something that even Disney wanted to copy but bitterly failed with (after buying the company that made monster house and in doing so ran it into the ground) *cough* Mars needs Moms *cough*
The monster itself is a beautiful love story. The man loved his wife so much he spent years unhappy and frightened to keep her happy.
And truly the house's want to attack people makes sense (but is not an excuse). She had been abused her while life and bitter.
This is better than some monsters of villains who just do it because!
It is scary enough to be a great bigger horror film, and tame enough to be lots of fun and not traumatic.
Anyway.... this film needs idk more respect.
