A masterpiece

Arthur and the Haunted Tree House is a masterful work of art that brilliantly develops Arthur and Buster as characters, has an engaging and thought provoking plot, is beautifully written, and has breathtaking animation. This movie is not for the faint of heart however, as it contains many creepy moments, multiple jump scares, and a terrifying villain. However I definitely recommend.

My son is still scared years later

I trusted the age rating and the Arthur name, and made a terrible mistake to not watch it with my son, who was 4 at the time. This movie has a creepy doll in it that was totally overdone for the target audience. My son is 6 and a half and still talks about it. Do not recommend.
