The long-awaited trailer for ‘The House with a Clock in its Walls’ just dropped today and fans, as well as people that have never heard of the series, are excited.
The book was first published in 1973 by John Bellairs and since then has been adapted once for the series ‘Once Upon a Midnight Scary’ hosted by Vincent Price (which sounds like something I need to see). Now the film adaptation is being helmed by horror director Eli Roth, who judging by this first trailer, has found making a children’s film well. The story follows a young orphan (Owen Vaccaro) who has gone to live with his Uncle (Jack Black). As it turns out his uncle lives in a magical somewhat possibly haunted house with a woman (Cate Blanchett). The three of them need to find the clicking tock before the world is doomed.
Call me intrigued.
‘The House with a Clock in its Walls’ is in theaters September 21, 2018.
