Triple bill of children's features. In 'Jumanji' (1995), young Judy and Peter Shepherd (Kirsten Dunst and Bradley Pierce) discover the board game Jumanji in their new house. But when they begin to play they release wild animals along with Alan Parrish (Robin Williams), a grown man who has been trapped inside the game since he was 12 years old. Together they must seek out Alan's friend Sarah (Bonnie Hunt) and re-enter the game to win. In doing so they have to face elephants, lions, and the big game hunter Van Pelt (Jonathan Hyde). 'Monster House' (2006) is an animated spinetingler featuring the voices of Steve Buscemi, Nick Cannon, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kevin James. DJ Harvard (voice of Mitchel Musso) lives directly across the street from a most unusual house. A malevolent entity that longs to feed on the energy of the living, the once peaceful house that looms ominously outside of DJ's bedroom window would like nothing more than the chance to feast on the children of the neighbourhood. As Hallowe'en begins to draw near and the children of the neighbourhood prepare for another long night of trick-or-treating, it appears as if it may be the house that is in for the biggest treat of all. In 'Small Soldiers' (1998), Alan Abernathy (Gregory Smith) is working at his father's toy store when he receives a sample of two new ranges of action figures: the Gorgonites, a race of peaceable aliens; and the Commando Elite, a tough bunch of war-ready soldiers. However, when Alan takes them home, the figures come to life and begin to engage each other in a furious running battle, with the Commando Elite transforming ordinary household implements into deadly weapons as they wage war against their alien foe. When Alan realises what is going on, he joins ranks with the Gorgonites and starts to draw up plans to bring an end to the commando threat.
