Domus Mactibilus

Domus Mactibilus is a peculiar occurrence. It’s that odd occasion when the spirit of a deceased person enters the structure of a house and makes it haunted. Yup, the house itself is a haunted monster, and it is fueled by its heart. As it turns out, the only way to shut down this monster is by attacking its beating or rather heating heart. Where is the heart of a house, you ask? Well, you’re going to have to watch ‘Monster House’ to find out.

Monster House

Monster House is an animated feature film from 2006 that combines humour, horror and a surprising twist to grip its audiences. The film follows the life of an unpopular schoolboy DJ and his two friends as they try to unravel the mystery of the old grump, Nebbercracker. Nebbercracker can’t seem to the hang of children, in fact he downright hates them. He taunts them, raucously pushes them off his lawn and steals their toys. Of course, no one knows why, and for the most part, no one could care less.

DJ and his friends, on the other hand, are driven by curiosity. So, when DJs parents go off for a holiday trip, he decides to decode the mystery that’s plagued him forever. He gathers his sole friend and an unlucky girl who happens to encounter the madness of Nebbercracker to finally do what the adults can’t: Put an end to this unwarranted Juvenile torment. Of course, it’s not long before DJ realises that he’s bitten off more than he can chew.
