Synopsis:
MONSTER HOUSE is the spooky, thrilling and clever story of two young boys, D.J. and Chowder, who find that their neighbor Horace Nebbercracker is a little more than a grouchy old man. Everyone thought that D.J. had a particularly overactive imagination as he was convinced that his hagard and crabby neighbor Horace Nebbercracker was responsible for Mrs. Nebbercracker’s mysterious disappearance. Any toy that touches Nebbercraker’s property promptly dissappears, swallowed up by the cavernous house in which Horace lives. D.J. has seen it with his own eyes! But no one believes him, not even his best friend, Chowder. Everyone slowly discovers that D.J. is not imagining things. Everything he’s seen is absolutely true and it’s about to get much worse than anything D.J. could have imagined.
