Lewis Barnavelt, after losing his parents, is sent to Michigan to live with his uncle Jonathan. He discovers his uncle is a warlock, and enters a world of magic and sorcery. But this power is not limited to good people: Lewis learns of Isaac Izard, an evil wizard who constructed a magical clock with black magic, as long as it exists it will keep ticking, counting down to doomsday. He died before he could finish the clock, but he hid the clock in his house, where Uncle Jonathan now lives. Now Lewis and Jonathan must find the clock before it finishes its countdown and ends the world.
Jonathan's last name is Barnavelt, the same as Lewis. But Jonathan is Lewis' mother's brother, and his last name should be her maiden name, not Barnavelt. The only ways they both could be named Barnavelt would be if her husband's name also just happened to be Barnavelt, or if the family used a naming convention that was extremely unusual and nonconforming by the standards of 1940s-1950s America.

Reviewing With Josh! "The House With A Clock In Its Walls"
Horror mastermind Eli Roth attempts to turn away from the dark side and go towards the light but for his newest film "The House With A Clock In Its Walls" only one half of his change actually pays off.
The film takes on the story of a young orphan to which his uncle is a wizard or some magic man and goes on this weird and twisted quest to find this hidden clock in their house's walls and stop an evil plot to end humanity. As ridiculous as the story sounds, you could easily find it quite entertaining.
First of all the film itself was average. I must say I still can't understand what film the producers were trying to make. A horror or fantasy? Make up your mind! Not to mention some of the most sloppy and ridiculous scenes that make plot holes even deeper. However behind all of this negativity is a great cast with amazing CGI effects and pure family fun.
Although Eli Roth tried his hardest it was just not enough to make this film truly magical or marvellous.
"The House With A Clock In Its Walls" is a genuine family film with entertaining moments along with a small splash of dark fantasy. But this movie has too many plot holes, sloppy scenes and a really weird storyline.
