“I’ve been looking to do a movie like this for a long time,” Eli Roth told us in Los Angeles recently. Thanks to films such as Hostel and Cabin Fever, the director’s name has long been synonymous with gory, intense, R-rated horror. That’s why seeing his name on the PG-rated family film The House With a Clock in Its Walls initially seems so surprising.

Sitting down to watch The House with a Clock in Its Walls, you know exactly the movie you want to see. A fun, exciting, kind of scary but whimsical adventure with great visual effects, fun characters, jokes, chills, thrills—all of that. The actual film has some of those things, but not enough to make it truly worth your while.
The first trailer for The House With a Clock in Its Walls was... fine. Cool visuals, great cast, but tonally, it felt a bit awkward. Well, that's gone in this second trailer, which ups the wish-fulfillment, fantasy, and adventure elements in a way that will get you very excited.
Video: The latest film from the director of Hostel and Cabin Fever features a house so haunted, it has its own heart. However, despite Eli Roth's reputation, this isn't a gory horror movie. It's produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, which means the scares are fun for the whole family!
