It's more than just a haunted house. It's a monster! For DJ, Chowder and Jenny (Mitchel Musso, Sam Lerner and Spencer Locke), three friends who have been spying on the man-consuming building across the street, this is common knowledge. But how do they convince the rest of the neighborhood before it's too late?
Why Is Monster House Rated PG?
Monster House is rated PG for scary images and sequences, thematic elements, some crude humor and brief language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Monster House...
Monster House plays out like an attraction at an amusement park, with a reason to jump around every turn. Violence includes verbal and physical threats, the monstrous personification of a house, encounters with the dead and dying, bullying, scary moments, situations of peril, depictions of violent video games and guns, as well as explosions. Parents should also note thematic elements like a lack of respect for authority figures and laws, no dependable or trustworthy adult characters, and euthanasia inferences. Other concerns are potty humor, name-calling and terms of deity used as expletives, cracks about puberty, some mild sexual innuendo, as well as a beer drinking young adult and a cough syrup swigging authority figure.
