“The House with a Clock in Its Walls” Is Coming to Your House

It seems like just yesterday (it was actually six weeks ago) that Jack Black and Cate Blanchett were delivering family-friendly scares to audiences with The House with a Clock in Its Walls. It was a departure for gore-master Eli Roth, and the film ended up being his biggest hit, earning more than $100 million worldwide.

And just like clockwork – pun intended – the film will be available to take home in time for the holidays. Fans have the option of getting the movie on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD. Each disc is loaded with special features, including a behind the scenes look at the incredible production design, the spooky special effects and a feature commentary with Roth and Black.

But if you just can't wait, The House with a Clock in Its Walls will be available for digital rental and purchase on Wednesday, November 28. The discs can be purchased starting Tuesday, December 18.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
