The story of this movie with a complicated name is set in 1955 where we see our beloved Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro) who’s 10 years old visiting his crazy uncle Jonathan Barnavelt (Jack Black) in Michigan. He then is introduced to this creaky old house which is termed as a slaughterhouse by the outsiders. As the name suggests the house has a hidden clock in its walls and that’s where all the mystery lies. Lewis, an orphan, expects some fun time with his uncle and he gets it in his own way. Jonathan is a weird warlock (another word for a magician) and lives in the house with Florence Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett) who’s a powerful though retired witch. Isaac and Selena Izard are the people who owned the house before Jonathan and they built the clock inside the wall to perform something spooky in order to end the world. But now as the Barnavelts are together they unite and fight with the Izards to save the world.
