* ArtistDisillusionment: Apparently it had enough for one of the screenwriters, Dan Harmon, [[http://www.movieline.com/2010/03/monster-house-screenwriter-apologizes-for-his-movie-slams-director-and-spielberg.php to write an apology letter]]. Citing that ExecutiveMeddling had made the movie more scary than intended. The letter also took the opportunity to call Spielberg and company morons regarding decisions made that he was clearly unhappy with.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Apparently producer Steven Spielberg and director Gil Kenan made the final product more scary in tone than one of the screenwriters Creator/DanHarmon intended and also added the scene expanding on [[spoiler: Constance's origin and death]]. Considering the film is in fact called ''Monster House'' and the backstory is actually very important plot wise, fans of the film would see their influence as a [[TropesAreNotBad good thing]].
