THREE KIDS. ONE HOUSE. IT’S ALIVE!
Old man Nebbercracker makes sure every kid in the neighborhood stays scared of his house… but there is a monstrous reason for it. Co-executive producers Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis and their body of work must have been a source of inspiration for the director in his vivid, adventurous portrayal of three kids who learn the secret behind an eerie house. A little slow at first, but gets better; not a film for really young children though. The movie employs 3D motion-capture technology, but humans still look a little unsatisfying, especially their plastic hair.
2006-U.S. Animated. 91 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Gil Kenan. Voices of Steve Buscemi (Nebbercracker), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Zee), Kevin James (Officer Landers), Nick Cannon, Jason Lee, Jon Heder… Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, Kathleen Turner.
