It starts out with an intriguing story about a boy exploring his new life in his weird uncle's enchanted house. "Innocent" wizardry and magic is introduced, and very quickly the movie took a DARK, MENACING, and DEMONIC turn. Now the boy is bringing evil wizards back from the dead, facing walking devil dolls, and learning how the evil wizard got his power from a demon in a very graphic and gory visual. My girls were terrified of the movie, and the only reason we stayed is because they wanted to see good triumph the bad and make some sense of the whole debacle. I am furious that this movie has a PG rating. There is blood, gore, scary themes, witchcraft, dark magic, and much more that should have brought this to a PG-13 with cautionary warnings. As a parent, I should have done some very easy-to-find research on this movie, but as this was a spur-of-the-moment decision, I assumed that the trailer would be enough. How wrong I was. The trailer is light and whimsical compared to what was hidden inside this film. I will tell you what the critics will not... This is not a movie for children. Expand

Caution to Parents! This movie and rating is a ruse. This should have been PG-13 at best. Not suited for young children,Christians or anybody with any sense. It is all about Witchcraft and satanic rituals. This is where Hollyweird is goingCaution to Parents! This movie and rating is a ruse. This should have been PG-13 at best.

I thought it was rather boring, compared to the Harry Potter Series. Perhaps it would have been better if there had been a serious background story, which was a strong feature of Harry Potter.

I went to see "The House With A Clock In Its Walls" not with high hopes but expecting to find it entertaining, fun and energetic. As a fan of both Jack Black and Cate Blanchett I expected it to be at least good. Both Blanchett and Black doI went to see "The House With A Clock In Its Walls" not with high hopes but expecting to find it entertaining, fun and energetic. As a fan of both Jack Black and Cate Blanchett I expected it to be at least good. Both Blanchett and Black do their best with the material provided and do elevate the movie frequently. The young actor portraying Black's character's 10 year old orphaned nephew is played by Owen Vaccaro. He shines throughout. His character's desire for childhood friendship and acceptance is genuine and heartfelt. It's the writing and plot that sinks this movie. I'm not sure who the target audience is for this movie. Although it aims clearly for a "Harry Potter" and "Goosebumps" audience it misses the mark wildly. It tries to be fun and occasionally is but then turns very dark. Occult and demonic themes do not cater to young audiences. It tries to be whimsical at times and at times succeeds at whimsy but this movie is ALL over the place. Teens seem bored with the movie as I witnessed a number of walkouts during the movie. It's too dark for small children. Speaking for adults, I found it tries too hard to be too many things and target wide audiences, clearly aiming for fans of the Harry Potter and Goosebumps franchises. Expand
