The House with a Clock in its Walls 

 

A big shout out and thank you goes to Cheryl over at Christ Centered Gamer. She sent us a copy of The House with a Clock in its Walls on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital. Noah was interested in seeing this movie from the preview. Plus we all really enjoy Jack Black. He is usually very funny in his movies. The House with a Clock in its Walls was not what we expected.

The issues families will have with The House with a Clock in its Walls is necromancy, magic, warlocks, possession, demons, and more. The motives of the bad guy makes little sense to me personally. SPOILER ALERT! He saw that horrors of war and wants to get rid of all humans. How does he get that power? He makes a deal with a demon. He also winds up dying. He is brought back to life thanks to necromancy.

There are some funny moments in The House with a Clock in its Walls. Jack Black plays the part of a friendly warlock quite well. I am bothered by The House with a Clock in its Walls trying to redefine warlocks and witches in this manner. Both have an evil connotation to them in reality. Yes I know The House with a Clock in its Walls is fantasy. Holly Weird uses fantasy to redefine things and get society to accept them.

The House with a Clock in its Walls is much more scary than I expected too. The horror elements are deeper than I thought they would be. The house in this movie seems almost alive at times. There are plenty of items in the house that act alive like the chair and that winged lion bush. Very little is done with the loss of the boys parents in The House with a Clock in its Walls.

The lack of rules in the house (except for one) was very bothersome to me. Eating cookies all the time makes little dietary sense to me. I am glad we did not spend any money on The House with a Clock in its Walls because I feel it is not worth it at any price. Maybe that is why we were never offered this movie. The PR and Marketing folks representing this movie must have figured where we would come down on The House with a Clock in its Walls.
