Monster House is a 2006 animated film about a haunted house and three children trying to best it. The movie was reasonably successful; so like most successful movies, it got a spinoff game.

jlun2 improves his previous run by 5 minutes and 4.56 seconds, thanks to much better optimization and new glitches. Reading the author's comments is recommended.

Monster House is a 2006 animated film about a haunted house and three children trying to best it. The movie was reasonably successful; so like most successful movies, it got a spinoff game.

While it is not the most interesting game ever during normal play, Monster House becomes much more interesting when it's thoroughly broken. Here, the author uses an out of bounds glitch to break the game, allowing for quite a bit of time saving.
