The House with a Clock in Its Walls looks like a total fun romp. It stars Cate Blanchett and Jack Black as a witch and a warlock in a big creepy house with a ticking heart.
The film follows the magical adventures of Lewis (Owen Vaccaro). Lewis arrives at his uncle’s house and somehow awakens the dead. The synopsis of the film is even more ominous: “A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt aids his uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by master frightener Eli Roth and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural).”
Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, Lorenza Izzo and Sunny Suljic co-star.
The House with a Clock in Its Walls is rated PG, so it should be fun for the whole family. There are two trailers for the film, which hits theaters on September 21. Let’s watch them both.
