So-so anime has exaggerated scares, complex plots.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Good ideas in this anime get lost in a disappointing, convoluted plot. The Haunted House attempts to juggle too many ideas at once and misses the mark. Mysteries are overly complicated, and the visuals and sound effects can be quite scary, which may not be suitable for young kids. The story of the gnome and the siblings collecting ghostly powers felt like an afterthought rather than the main quest. It doesn't help that each ghost's backstory is only revealed at the very end, after they've already acted out so much that it can be difficult to empathize. While the overall plot may be too complicated for younger ones to follow, kids who enjoy mysteries and zombies may find it entertaining.
