Movie Review: The House with a Clock in it’s Walls
This movie is a dark fantasy with magic and aimed for children at PG. However, one main complaint I have is that the movie is borderline PG13. Sure, my 9-year-old was okay-ish with it. But it was a bit too scary for my 5-year-old (who usually laughs at scary videos).
But I did love all the main actors in this movie and the premise. A recently orphaned boy comes to live with his eccentric uncle. Slowly he discovers that the house is alive and his uncle is a warlock. Together he, his uncle, and neighbor must stop an evil warlock from destroying all humans.
There are humor and scary scenes. I did enjoy the movie but like I wrote above, I wouldn’t have brought my 5yr old had I known that the scary scenes were so intense and a bit too much for a child that young.
My rating 4.6 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
