THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS is a fantasy adventure film in which an orphaned boy must help his warlock uncle uncover the mystery of the ticking clock hidden in a Gothic mansion

Threat

Scary scenes include one in which a man is raised from the dead using 'blood magic' and a flashback sequence during which he is seen to make a pact with a demon. There are various scenes in which the heroes are menaced by scary supernatural creatures including sinister puppets and slime-spitting pumpkins.

Other issues include rude humour, occasional mild violence and very mild bad language.
