Based on a classic children's story of the same name, The House with a Clock in its Walls is directed by Eli Roth. Yes, the very same Eli Roth who pioneered what many came to classify as a sub-genre in the movie industry, horror porn.
Roth rose to fame after his directorial films, Cabin Fever, and Hostel. Whilst his selection may be a surprise to some, it is clear that he has an interesting visual interpretation that seems to fit with the source material. Further analysis will no doubt be required when the film releases on the 21st September 2018.
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, from Amblin Entertainment. 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). Co-starring Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic, it is produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), as well as Kripke.
