In 2018’s The House with a Clock in its Walls directed by Eli Roth, an orphaned 10-year-old boy ‘Lewis Barnavelt’ (played Owen Vaccaro) goes to live with his uncle ‘Jonathan Barnavelt’ (Jack Black) in his creaky old mansion house in 1955. He soon discovers that his uncle is a warlock and his neighbour and best friend ‘Florence Zimmerman’ (Cate Blanchett) is witch, and the magical house was previously owned by a sinister wizard who hid a clock with the power to end the world in its walls. Renée Elise Goldsberry plays the witch ‘Selena Izard’, the wife of the evil warlock. The fantasy comedy-horror is based on John Bellairs 1973 novel of the same name, illustrated by Edward Gorey.
