Note: The following text may contain spoilers

MONSTER HOUSE is an animated horror adventure in which three children discover that a house on their road is alive and eats anyone who comes close.

Threat

Scenes include the eponymous house twisting and making the shape of a monster face as its 'tongue' reaches out to try grab and swallow passers by. The heroes have to remain brave and defeat the house, but in approaching and entering it there are scenes of tension and brief jump scares.

Language

There is infrequent use of mild bad language ('crap', 'screw up', 'butt'). A girl asks two boys if they are 'mentally challenged', and there are brief references to puberty. There is a reference to 'stealing drugs' as the children try to find some cold medicine.
