Eli Roth dials his horror instincts down a few notches to direct The House with a Clock in its Walls – a family comedy-horror tale that’s much more comedy than horror.
When ten-year old Lewis goes to live with his uncle in a creepy old house, he learns that there’s a clock within its walls and a creepy thing that’s ‘completely safe… when it’s fed.’
Even worse, the town itself has dark secrets that Lewis accidentally provokes.
The House With a Clock In Its Walls is based on the classic children’s tale by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey.
The House With a Clock In Its Walls opens on September 21st.
