When Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro) is orphaned, he goes to live with his mysterious uncle, Jonathan Barnavelt (Jack Black).

Before they passed away, they hid a clock in the walls with the power to bring about the end of the world.

  • 1 star "The acting was great, but the plot line was a bit strange to me. Also, many parts in the movie made me a bit uncomfortable. Remember, this is just me personally, but I didn’t like the movie that much. Though again, great acting and actors."
