After the death of his parents, ten year-old Lewis Barnavelt is sent to live with his uncle Jonathan in Michigan, 1953. But any hopes of a quiet, normal life soon vanish into thin air when he discovers that his uncle is a warlock and their next door neighbour, his uncle’s good friend Mrs. Zimmerman, is a powerful good witch. After being told about Isaac and Selena Izard – a sinister couple who previously owned the house and implanted a ticking clock within its walls – Jonathan seeks to learn the ways of the magical and mystical, with his uncle agreeing to teach him. Together they must find the clock before it counts down to zero and unleashes Doomsday upon the world. ‘The House with a Clock in its Walls’ is a family fantasy adaptation of the gothic horror children’s novel of the same name.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
