10 best animated haunted house movies to watch before netflix's the house.

From Coraline and Hotel Transylvania to Scooby-Doo and more, find the most memorable animated haunted house movies to see before Netflix's The House.

Premiering on January 14, 2022, the Netflix original miniseries The House is a three-part animated horror-comedy that plays to the sensibilities of the older and younger crowd alike. The stop-motion anthology series follows three distinct stories set in one creepy haunted house, calling to mind some of the most memorable animated horror films of its ilk. Mainly, creepy cartoonish things going bump in the night in one relatively confined indoor location.

Animated horror fans who've yet to see The House or those awaiting the fate of a potential season 2 would be wise to prepare by checking out the coolest and spookiest animated haunted house movies.

Coraline - Stream On Roku

An absolute paragon of stop-motion animation, the Oscar-nominated  Coraline takes the artistic plaudits that Henry Selick achieved in The Nightmare Before Christmas to a whole new level of excellence. Dakota Fanning stars as Coraline , a lonely and eccentric young girl whisked away into an otherworldly dimension through portals in her strange childhood home.

Aside from the dazzling animation, the movie captures the childlike imagination of Coraline like very few other films, allowing viewers to identify with and relate to Coraline as she encounters one freakish creature after another.

Monster House - Stream On Netflix

Produced by Hollywood legends Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, Monster House is a pricey computer-animated feature that horror fans of every age ought to tour. The plot concerns a trio of young friends who discover that a freaky neighborhood abode is a living entity with terrifying motives.

Beyond the state-of-the-art motion-capture animation and genuine thrills and chills for a younger audience, the story is ultimately an uplifting tale of teenage friendship that everyone can glean valuable life lessons from. Moreover, the movie has tons of cool easter eggs relating to Stephen King's books and movies, which gives it a self-reflexive authority that adds to the fun.

ParaNorman - Stream On Netflix

One of the best character-driven haunted house animations, ParaNorman is a terrific tale about a misjudged young boy who comes into his own with newfound confidence. When a strange curse plagues his town of Blithe Hollow, Norman must use his ability to speak to the dead to quell a monstrous onslaught of zombies, witches, ghosts, ghouls. This includes protecting his home and his family's legacy.

Like any great children's film, the stop-motion animated horror movie teaches invaluable life lessons about self-acceptance, overcoming fears, and sacrificing for the greater good. While the story extends to Norman's neighborhood, the scene in which he visits the haunted Penderghast house is a pitch-perfect example of tension, suspense, horror, and comedy.

The Wolf House - Stream On AMC+

The little-known Spanish/German-language film The Wolf House may be the most terrifying animated house movie ever made . The story concerns Maria, a young woman who escapes a German colony and seeks refuge in a mysterious Chilean home. Once there, unspeakable evil ensues.

The avant-garde project took five years to complete, with the painstaking effort visible onscreen through a whirlwind of visual creativity. Surreal and nightmarish as can be, the mixed style of animation is almost identical to that of The House but is far scarier than most horror material geared toward children.

Monsters University - Stream On Disney+

Less of a residential abode than an official college campus, for all intents and purposes, Monsters University is akin to a haunted house movie. The misadventures of Mike and Sully are explored as they come of age in a prequel to Monsters Inc . , providing some of the most impressive 3D animated artwork in some time.

A grand metaphor for being different, the movie is a rousing reminder for children to accept who they are no matter what others think. With hilarious jokes to appeal to parents and good messaging for the kids, the haunted dorm room scenes are up there with the best of them.

Scooby-Doo Meets The Boo Brothers - Stream On Boomerang

While there have been many worthy haunted houses that Scooby-Doo has frequented over the years, his time on a cursed plantation house in Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers is one of the better examples. A huge part of the appeal is the trio of ghostbusting spirits Scoob and the gang hires to quell the vengeful spirit of Shaggy's deceased uncle.

In addition to paying homage to Ghostbusters  and other amusing horror movie references , the mysterious mansion itself is an eldritch maze of terror littered with bears, apes, headless horsemen, and a Skull Ghost that is sure to raise the hair of young horror fans everywhere.

Hotel Transylvania - Stream On Fubo

Semantics aside, Hotel Transylvania is essentially one large haunted house franchise in which the world's most infamous horror villains play hotelier hosts to the so-called normal people. Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, the Mummy, and other classic Universal monsters get to prove how misunderstood they've been in the world for generations.

The franchise does such a good job of subverting stereotypes, bucking convention, and completely reimagines the harrowing horror villains as deeply flawed and fully-rounded characters with just as many petty problems as everyday human beings.

Frankenweenie - Stream On Disney+

From the uniquely inspired mind of visionary Tim Burton, Frankenweenie transcends the haunted house subgenre to become a profoundly moving tale of friendship. Yet the inciting resurrection of Victor's reanimated pet pooch Sparky takes place in a makeshift laboratory in his attic. Before exploring the neighborhood, the claustrophobic tension and suspense inside Victor's house are second to none.

RELATED: 10 Best Quotes From Tim Burton Movies

Adapted from his own 1984 short film of the same name, Burton has a preternatural understanding of what it's like to be an outsider and uses the age-old Frankenstein template to convey a sense of alienation and isolation.

The Addams Family - Stream On Hulu

Adapted from the beloved 1960s sitcom , The Addams Family  computer-animated movie released in 2019 incorporates a lot of campy, kitschy haunted house tropes that are quite amusing for older and younger crowds alike. The moody atmosphere of the Addams abode atop a mountain surrounded by foggy marshland is quite an unsettling sight to behold.

Between the moldering interiors of the decrepit manse, secret tunnels beneath the foundation, hidden surveillance cameras, and more, the movie celebrates the eerie eccentricities of the family rather than castigate them as terrifying, which is the basis of the morbid humor.

The Haunted House: The Secret Of The Cave - N/A To Stream

The first cinematic adaptation of  Shinbi Apartment series, The Haunted House: The Secret of the Cave is a terrific Korean animated feature somewhat similar to Scooby-Doo . The story involves Shinbi, a 102-year-old goblin living in an apartment, and the secret cave it discovers along with two young protagonists.

The cave transports the trio to 1996 where they encounter the same apartment Shinbi inhabits in the present, leading to a harrowing backstory of an ancient village accursed with evil. While The Haunted House series can be streamed on Netflix, the film version is a bit harder to find. However, it's worth the search.

Netflix’s ‘The House’ Is An Unsettling Stop-Motion Film With Something To Say

Where to stream:.

  • The House (2022)
  • Matthew Goode

Stream It Or Skip It: 'Medieval' on Hulu, an Uberviolent Historical Battle Epic Starring a Grim Ben Foster

'downton abbey: a new era' should have let lady mary kiss hugh dancy, how many episodes of 'the offer' will there be, stream it or skip it: 'the offer' on paramount+, a bloated miniseries detailing the making of 'the godfather'.

Every so often while watching The House , a new stop-motion film on Netflix, I would remember that every single frame had been meticulously set up and photographed, and my mind would be blown all over again.

It’s an easy detail to forget, because it’s easy to get lost in the compelling narrative of the three short animated films that make up The House . Each tale—which, while animated, are dark and creepy and morbid and decidedly not for young children—centers on a different house. The houses are beacons of corruption, objects of scams, and symbols of thwarted dreams. The protagonists move into them, out of them, fix them up, tear them down, and ride them off into the sunset. And with all three houses come lessons about materialism, about deception, and about letting go.

The first tale, titled simply “Story 1,” is directed by Marc James Roels and Emma de Swaef, a Belgium stop-motion filmmaking duo. Roels and de Swaef’s gorgeous set takes viewers back to the 1800s, where a family of four (all vaguely off-putting fabric dolls) is living in a modest home. After a visit from his overly critical mother, the father of the family, Raymond (voiced by Matthew Goode ), takes a drunken midnight walk and makes a deal with a mysterious architect who offers to gift the family a new, luxurious house for free. The only catch? They have to leave all of their old belongings behind.

Raymond’s wife Penny (Claudie Blakey) is hesitant at first, but she quickly gets on board when she sees the house comes with a top-of-the-line sewing machine. Husband and wife are so enchanted by their new possessions—a magnificent fireplace, electric light bulbs, fine fabrics—they completely ignore their two children, Mabel (voiced by Mia Goth) and the baby Isobel. I won’t spoil the story’s ending, but it comes with a macabre, Edgar Allen Poe-esque twist to ensure they pay for their sins. All the while, you get caught up in the world, but you’ll be reminded of the artistic achievement with wide shots that reveal an elaborate diorama, like a scene where Raymond watches from the window while his old home is torn down. It’s moments like these where you’ll marvel at the sheer creation of it all, a story created not just with words but physical objects.

The second story, directed by Swedish animator and filmmaker Niki Lindroth von Bahr, takes things from “gothic children’s fairy tale” creepy to straight-up horror movie creepy. Set in the modern-day in a world of anthropomorphic rats, a nameless contractor (voiced by Jarvis Cocker) cuts corners by firing his construction crew for a renovation, hoping to do a quick job of it himself in order to upsell a shoddy home to a rich sucker. He’s in over his head—the place has a nasty infestation of wriggly, crawly bugs that won’t go away with simple spraying. But despite his disastrous showing, an old, unsettling rat couple is “very interested” in the house. It soon becomes clear that the couple is scamming the scammer right back. To say it doesn’t end well for the contractor is putting it mildly—the final, haunting shot is an image so viscerally disturbing, so relentlessly bleak, that I’ll be thinking about it for weeks to come. And yet, it is also an artistic triumph achieved by destroying such a meticulously-built set.

The third and final story of The House , directed by Paloma Baeza, ends, thankfully, on a more uplifting note. A landlady named Rosa (voiced by Susan Wokoma) is determined to pursue her life-long dream of fixing up a crumbling but beautiful Victorian home, despite the fact that a devastating flood has driven away almost all of her residents. The two that remain, Elias (voiced by Will Sharpe) and Jen (voiced by Helena Bonham Carter), know that they too must move on soon, as the water will fill the house within a matter of days. But Rosa refuses to see it. She blithely continues to re-paper walls and fix floorboards, stubbornly sticking her life plan, despite the fact that a catastrophe has clearly uprooted it. Though lacking the dark and gruesome imagery of the first two stories, it was this one that hit me the hardest, as I and so many of my friends have put our lives on hold indefinitely for the pandemic, again. I can only hope that, like Rosa and her beautiful home, we can find a way to sail into the flood.

The Developer in The House

The House review – beautiful animation that speaks to your darkest terrors

Helena Bonham Carter and Jarvis Cocker voice characters in this creepy stop-motion trilogy, whose wonderful aesthetics sometimes don’t quite match up to its storytelling

W ell, here’s a funny little curio to take your mind off everything for a bit. The House , produced by UK-based Nexus Studios and streamed by Netflix, is an adult stop-motion anthology special. Three stories of roughly half an hour each are set in the same house in different eras. The first two have a spooky twist, the third is a more straightforward if dystopian tale.

In the interests of full disclosure, I am firmly in the camp of those who find stop-motion animation quite spooky enough without adding intentional frights. The slight herky-jerky nature of the movement is a constant reminder of the endless unseen positioning and repositioning that goes on. It speaks to my darkest terror – that we have no free will at all and are indeed just playthings to unseen gods, posing us here, there and everywhere for nothing more than their sport. We’re all just puppets, d’you see? Puppets with illusory notions of freedom and independence. Do you see yet? Do you see?

I’m sorry. Where was I? Ninety-minute, three-part stop-motion special The House. OK.

The first and by far the most successful of the trio is directed (using bulbous-headed felted figures that – even without my particular terrors – stand somewhere on the line between thoroughly charming and thoroughly disquieting) by Belgian auteurs Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels and set roughly around the turn of the last century. An impoverished family is persuaded to move home by architect’s emissary Mr Thomas, who is voiced by master of oddity Mark Heap (and whose presence adds a further ineffably unsettling touch for all those who recognise the reedy tones that have never once portended good). They move from their little home to a much grander, specially designed, fully furnished affair built on a nearby hilltop, where every modern convenience is supplied – lights come on automatically as it gets dark, all meals are provided. You don’t have to have recently watched the BBC’s thriller The Girl Before to get a bad feeling about this, but it helps.

Sure enough, it soon emerges that even in Edwardian-ish times there is no such thing a free breakfast, lunch or tea. The house will exact a price. The parents (voiced by Matthew Goode and Claudie Blakley) quickly become enslaved by its dark spirit (or that of its owner, whose shadowy face is occasionally superimposed over the whole – you know the drill). Their young daughter, Mabel (Mia Goth), remains unaffected, but the malevolent house transforms around her so she cannot reach her entranced parents in time to save them from the raging conflagration that finally consumes them.

There is nothing narratively innovative here, but enchanted parents, the disbelieved or unheard child and the inability to reach safety – however many corridors you run down and corners you turn – are perennially effective nightmare tropes, and to have them rendered in this way adds a novelty that refreshes them. And the design, the overall aesthetic, is wonderful.

It’s a toss-up between which of the remaining two is less rewarding. In the one directed by Niki Lindroth von Bahr, the house is being renovated in the present by an embattled developer (voiced by Jarvis Cocker). We first meet him while he is trying to attract further investment and to repel an invasion of “fur beetles” (this time the characters are anthropomorphised animals – the Developer, who is given no other name, is a rat). His troubles multiply when a pair of supposed potential buyers who come to the open house event refuse to leave. They are soon joined by a host of other friends and relatives. The final scenes reveal the Developer with his spirit well and truly broken. But the story is too underbaked to deliver any real horrors or work as a fable about violation, or capitalism or any of the other themes it seems at various moments to be nodding vaguely at.

The last, directed by Paloma Baeza, finds Rosa (a cat-figure, this time voiced by Susan Wokoma) engaged in a futile battle to restore the house as the flood waters of the future inexorably rise around it.

She has tenants, played by Helena Bonham Carter and Will Sharpe, but they pay her in fish and crystals - unacceptable currencies to the plumbers and electricians she would like to employ. One by one, her tenants leave to find a safer berth elsewhere and eventually she is persuaded to leave too.

This final third is a very, very slight affair. If the content of the stories had matched the painstaking form, the anthology could have been rather a groundbreaking success. As it is, the architects need to go back to the drawing board.
