Based on the first volume of John Bellairs’ beloved children’s book series, The House with a Clock in Its Walls tells the spine-tingling story of Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro), a young orphan who is sent to stay with his eccentric Uncle Jonathan (Jack Black) in a curious mansion with a mysterious tick-tocking heart.
Before long, Lewis’s entire world turns upside down when he discovers that his Uncle Jonathan and their neighbour Mrs. Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett) are both powerful practitioners of the magic arts, and that they are on a secret mission to discover the source and meaning of a doomsday clock hidden away within the house’s walls.
All this, plus deadly curses, attacking jack-o'-lanterns, an evil wizard who has returned from the grave, and endless hours of homework…Lewis’s exciting new life is more than enough for any cunning and clever 10-year-old to juggle.
The House with a Clock in Its Walls opens in cinemas on November 1 and is rated PG for Some Disturbing Scenes.
