Dreamworks was in full swing back in 2006, cranking out hit after computer animated hit, and this seasonal treat can still give you a good old fashioned kind of scare, and cannot be beat when it comes to great family horror films. This modern classic sits right up there with the Scary Godmother series for great Halloween holiday fun, and even has a retro setting most parents will enjoy and will identify with.
So, here it is, circa early 1980s, in a town that could be anywhere from Maine to Washington state, with crisp red, orange, and golden trees dotting the landscape. The focus of this story is one young teen, DJ (Mitchel Musso), and his obsession with the mysterious house across the street. This old place belongs to what appears to be a crotchety old man named Mr. Nebbercracker (Steve Buscemi). This man goes crazy whenever anyone messes with his lawn or comes near his home. From the most innocent little kid on a tricycle to drunken teenagers, no one is immune to his wrath. DJ has been investigating the pattern, and wants to know more about what is happening with that old house across the street. His parents are leaving town for the weekend of Halloween, and now he has his chance to find out more.
