If you think that malicious pumpkins, creepy mannequins and an ancient, deceased warlock creating a horrid act through blood magic is quite an adventure, then this is the movie to watch. “The House with the Clock in its Walls” is a movie about a young boy who goes to lives with his oddball uncle and his feisty neighbor in a house with a mysterious tick in its walls. Young Lewis soon realizes that the house is magically operated by a ticking clock, placed there by a wicked, malicious warlock, who goes by the name of Isaac Izard, who relinquished his life by his own hex.

Director Eli Roth meant to show the audience that, our world can be magical, at least for young audiences. Roth concentrates on the experience between the four main protagonists, portrayed by Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro, Cate Blanchett, and Kyle MacLachlan.

Roth even stated, “Imagination can take you anywhere, as long as you’re passionate about it,” a message to young adolescents, that it is alright to express what you believe in. To not be afraid to show what your mind can behold.

This movie was the ode to all the young ones who were ridiculed for being weird, odd, and strange. A story filled with the excitement of jump scares, perfectly balanced with humor and terror, and accessible anti-war allegory for all ages, especially for children under 12. Although the dark humor was a bit overwhelming for young audiences, it included extensive knowledge of the magic behind necromancy, levitation, and the power to summon a galaxy, for our young protagonist.

To counteract this the enchanting experience, there are critics from other audiences where the plot of the movie didn’t catch their eyes. To them, it wasn’t as engaging as they had hoped, “The House with the Clock in its Walls,” did not manage to create the magic we kept hoping will materialize.

In conclusion, no matter how odd something is, there is always a beauty that lies within. “The House with the Clock in its Walls” isn’t a movie that everybody agrees with, but it was extraordinary within itself. It shows how there will always be a special place for those who share an otherworldly mind and an outlandish imagination. Who knows, maybe this Halloween, things will shift into excitement this year.
