Reviews: THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS / ASSASSINATION NATION

J Bryant and AngieBee discuss director Eli Roth's THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, and Kyle MacLachlan; and the dark comedy thriller ASSASSINATION NATION starring Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Joel McHale, Bill Skarsgard, and Bella Thorne.

The magical adventure THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle (Jack Black) in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.

The fictional 'House with a Clock in Its Walls' was based on the real-life Cronin Mansion in author John Bellairs' hometown of Marshall, Michigan, which served as the basis for the town of New Zebedee used in his books. (IMDB)

High school senior Lily and her group of friends live in a haze of texts, posts, selfies and chats just like the rest of the world. So, when an anonymous hacker starts posting details from the private lives of everyone in their small town, the result is absolute madness leaving Lily and her friends questioning whether they’ll live through the night.

The town in the film is named Salem. There are many parallels between the hysteria during Salem Witch Trials and the events in this film. (IMDB)
