I bet whenever you hear the name “Eli Roth,” the last thing you think of is child-friendly horror. To the surprise of everyone, we’re actually going to see him tackle the family horror film, The House With A Clock In Its Walls! Joining Eli Roth’s cast are Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, and Kyle MacLachlan, all of whom are legendary actors. Check out the official trailer for The House With A Clock In Its Walls below!
(Synopsis provided by IMDb.com):
A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt aids his magical uncle, Johnathan, in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world.
The House With A Clock In Its Walls will be an adaptation of the eponymous book written by John Bellairs. Eli Roth is mostly known for directing gore-fests such as Hostel (2005), Cabin Fever (2002), and The Green Inferno (2013). I can’t wait to see his take on whimsical storytelling!
