Monster House is a 2006 animation movie. It tells the story of DJ Walters as his life is turned upside down when he gets involved with a haunted house on Halloween.
WARNING: SPOILERS! If you don't want to have the movie spoiled, do not read on from here.
In the movie, three children called Jenny, Chowder and DJ team up to destroy the Monster House. For three years, DJ had spied on Mr. Nebbercracker, the old, incredibly cranky old man who lived in the house since the beginning of the town. Eventually, the house steals Chowder's basketball and makes the duo incredibly annoyed. When they go to get it, Mr. Nebbercracker comes out and picks up and attacks DJ. However, this causes him to have a heart attack, which DJ thought killed him, making him believe he was a murderer. Afterwards, DJ finds a mysterious key in the grass which comes to use later. His babysitter, Zee, then arrives and turns out to be a total punk. DJ goes to his room until the night, in which Zee and her boyfriend Bones McShutup surprise DJ. Bones is eventually kicked out by Zee, and in a drunken stooper, starts talking angrily towards the house as Nebbercracker had stolen his favorite kite many years ago. He walks right up to the house and the door suddenly opens, revealing Bones' favorite red kite. It lures him into the house and it eats him. Eventually, Jenny, a ginger-haired girl selling items from her school who was unaware of the house being a Monster, went up to it and the Monster House attempted to eat her. DJ and Chowder saved her from being eaten, and the Monster House got infuriated. When the trio attempted to destroy the house by using a dummy with cold medicine to make it fall asleep so they could extinguish its heart (the Furnace), the police arrived and took them into their car, but they decided to inspect the house before leaving. The Monster House then attacks the two cops and eats them, leaving Jenny, DJ and Chowder stuck in the car. The House then attempts to pick up and eat the trio, but they manage to escape from the car right before going into the House's mouth. After surviving, the trio explore the house but fall into a pit filled with stolen toys and other items. It is here that DJ finds a mysterious cage, and using the mysterious key he found earlier to open it, he finds the cement-covered body of Constance, Mr. Nebbercracker's wife. Horrified, DJ trips and comes face-to-face with the cement body and it crumbles away, revealing the skeleton of Constance. This awakes the House immediately and causes it to find the trio in the pit, and it takes them to the mouth but they manage to avoid being eaten and escape by causing the house to ''throw up'' when Jenny grabs the uvula ( in this case, a bundle of lamps at the back of the House) and tugs, causing it to fill with water and then have it all flushed out via the door. Suddenly, an ambulance nearly hits DJ on the road and out steps Mr. Nebbercracker, who is amazingly still alive. After a bit of arguing, Nebbercracker finally tells the trio the story of Constance and him, and how she died and why he is so aggressive towards kids; he ushers them away to keep them safe from Constance (who possesses the house) eating them alive. He walks towards the House but DJ tells him to let her go, to which he agrees. This ultimately enrages the house and it comes alive, using trees for feet. It chases the all four of them to a construction site, where Nebbercracker hands DJ some dynamite and tells him to throw it into the chimney. After apparently being destroyed when it falls down a steep drop, it rebuilds into a horrendous monstrosity with nothing but a massive, circular mouth made of wood planks. DJ climbs on top of a crane and lights the dynamite, but falls onto the hook of the crane. After swinging around, he eventually gets over the house and throws the dynamite down into the chimney. He then grabs Chowder and they swing away, and the house finally explodes and Constance's spirit and Mr. Nebbercracker are free. Nebbercracker is shown dancing with her spirit before she flies away, to which he falls to his knees laughing happily as his, and Constance's 45-year imprisonment in that house has ended and they can both move on.
The movie ends with Jenny, Chowder, DJ and Nebbercracker giving away free toys from the pit, while the two cops, Bones and the dog that were eaten all climb out. It was also revealed that Skull has replaced Bones as Zee's boyfriend.
