In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett star in The House with a Clock in Its Walls. 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. Based on the beloved children's classic book.
This house knows what makes you tick.. When ten-year-old Lewis is suddenly orphaned, he is sent to live with his Uncle Jonathan in a creaky (and creepy) old mansion with a mysterious ticking noise that emanates from the walls. Upon discovering that his uncle is a warlock, Lewis begins learning magic, but when he rebelliously resurrects an evil warlock he must find the secret of the house and save the world from destruction.. The House With a Clock In Its Walls Wiki
The trailer shows this film to be something of a fun family film. It’s actually the complete opposite. Lots of demonic activity and foul language make it not suitable for a PG audience. It overall was a massive disappointment. Even with Jack Black in it, it was still horrible. It would easily give a kid nightmares. It should’ve been rated PG-13. Glad I didn’t see it in theaters!
its so bad not good ok
The house with a clock in its walls was pretty good because I felt like it was a pretty long movie it was pretty good it was good
Great movie. Escapism can be fun!
The story was great and the cast was perfect. The young actor was adorable and has real talent. I am nowhere near square or prude but there are a couple of scenes that were just too graphic regarding a demon and his behavior. For kids over the age of 12 is best with adult company for any needed explanation.
I watched this with my fiancé... we have no idea what this movie was about... I mean seriously... no idea. We had a few beers... then Jack Black turned into a baby and I accused him of putting acid in my beer. WHAT ON EARTH WAS THIS MOVIE ABOUT!!!!??? Not a cult classic... and to bring in the decoder ring from "A Christmas Story"... WHAT is up with this MOVIE!???
This movie is very dark and demonic. It’s disturbing and I don’t recommend anyone watching it. The only good thing is Jack Black.
There’s a lot of dark and demonic aspects of this movie. Blood rituals with a demon; satanic tones throughout the film. THIS IS NOT A KID’S MOVIE! Definitely not rated properly as PG either. Check online for in-depth content reviews. There’s a lot of seriously disturbing stuff in the film.
Don’t no if the movie is good or not it want even download
I thought it was a little too scary for a PG movie, but other than that it was pretty okay.
Very enjoyable, I intend to purchase this movie when and if it comes to apple if not I'll get it from a store for my collection of well done movies. I truly believe there could have been a lot more to this movie then what there was and that is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
I read the book last year and then I just saw the movie. The book had more detail in it and my opinion is that the movie was all over the place. The trailer looked interesting. It felt like a Halloween movie. But all over I liked both. 10/10 would Watch.
