In the Los Angeles Times, Patrick Goldstein offers a profile of the 29 year old debut feature filmmaker Gil Kenan, whose "Monster House" is coming this week to theaters. The animated studio movie, described as a "comic horror film," was shepherded by exec producers Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg and marks Kenan's follow-up to his 2002 UCLA thesis film, "The Lark," which was a Slamdance hit.
