Monster House is a 2006 computer animated motion capture horror/comedy film produced by ImageMovers and Amblin Entertainment, and distributed by Columbia Pictures. Executive produced by Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg, this is the first time since Back to the Future Part III that they have worked together. It is also the first time that Zemeckis and Spielberg both served as executive producers of a film. The film's characters are animated primarily utilizing performance capture, making it the second film to use the technology so extensively, following producer Robert Zemeckis' The Polar Express. 12-year-old DJ Walters (Mitchel Musso) spies on his elderly neighbor, Mr. Nebbercracker (Steve Buscemi), who takes any item that lands in his yard. DJ's parents (Catherine O'Hara and Fred Willard) leave town for the weekend for a dentists convention, leaving him in the care of Goth babysitter Elizabeth "Zee" (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
