Great film! Although this is aimed at children, I thoroughly enjoyed it (i'm 46). Plenty of mild scares, great special effects and a cracking plot. Jack Black was superb and my 10 year old daughter and I were captivated throughout.Highly recommend

Fairly good fun

Reviewer: Derek WinnertDate: 2018-09-22

With its thin, rather lame story, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is not great for adults but it is well produced in retro style, quite funny, quite scary, and ideal for its young people audience. A pleasantly laid-back Jack Black and an amusingly camp Cate Blanchett are both fairly good fun.


Reviewer: CarleneDate: 2018-09-21

A great cast, so well shot detail amazing. Jack Black, Cate Blanchett and the little guy who plays Louis are fantastic. A big fan of JB who played the part so well with a little Tenacious Dee thrown in. A magical film.
