Synopsis:
Oliver and Lasse's grandfather loves to entertain his grandchildren with grim stories about his time as a monster buster. Oliver, the older of the two, doesn't really believe his stories, but when their fitness-loving parents, who tend to be the quintessence of political correctness, start behaving in an alarmingly strange way, the children call in their grandfather, who says that they have been haunted by the dangerous self-mutating shadow monster, which goes from victim to victim and makes everyone act in a totally insane way. Luckily, Oliver has the power to fight the monsters, and together with his brother and best friends the large monster chase gets going, which also ends up being a chase for the school's beautiful new girl and a struggle against the nasty Philip.

Comments:
»Monster Busters« is based on an idea of the universe in the children's book series by Jacob Weinreich.
