Lewis Barnavelt, a shy but indomitable ten-year-old orphan, goes to live with his uncle Jonathan, a former entertaining magician, who hides too many creepy secrets, in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart which Jonathan is obsessed to find with the assistance of his enigmatic next-door neighbor Mrs. Zimmerman.
Would normally watch Cate Blanchett in anything, but this is insulting
Should not be rated PG!
Too dark for us! Black magic (the little boy cuts himself!), demons, zombies, etc. We had to turn it off. Wish it was rated PG-13, I would have looked it up first.
Not worth it.

The trailer shows this film to be something of a fun family film. It’s actually the complete opposite. Lots of demonic activity and foul language make it not suitable for a PG audience. It overall was a massive disappointment. Even with Jack Black in it, it was still horrible. It would easily give a kid nightmares. It should’ve been rated PG-13. Glad I didn’t see it in theaters!
never ever ever
