It's the day before Halloween and puberty-addled DJ has been left at home with a babysitter. Which wouldn't be so bad if our young hero weren't convinced that the creepy house across the street is eating people. This CGI toon takes a slightly different approach than some. Rather than going for a totally realistic style, the film tries to replicate the almost stop-motion look of old holiday specials. Combined with the film's retro-'80s setting, it makes for a pleasing flashback. 91 minutes PG.
