Monster House, 2006

The animated film by Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis about a “living” house that terrorized the whole area. It’s not easy to approach a monster: by throwing a ball at random on the lawn near the house, you will see that it will certainly be swallowed up. Not to mention the fact that not a single foot should step on dangerous territory ... There lives a vicious old man in that house who simply hates his neighbors, and especially his children. But nobody knows that the old man is not angry at all, he just fears that he controls his house. The cartoon was filmed in the best traditions of the thriller with only one difference - it is animated, therefore the pressure setting is not so strongly felt.

A gorgeous film adaptation of the childhood novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman, which ranks third in the list of the highest grossing puppet cartoons, and was nominated for Oscar and Golden Globe as the best animated film of the year.

Coraline does not have enough parental care and attention, as mom and dad are always busy. Seeking an outlet and real happiness, the girl finds herself in an alternative world where her most cherished dreams are fulfilled.
