Reviews:
"[I]t largely succeeds, buoyed by Black’s typical exuberance, Blanchett’s typical slyness and a richly evocative rendering of a Rockwellian suburb sprinkled with goofer dust." - 09/18/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"Roth adapts his skills quite nicely to this project’s PG rating, delivering minor jolts where appropriate, and leaning on GOOSEBUMPS star Jack Black to leaven things with comedy throughout." - 09/18/2018 Variety


3 stars out of 5 -- "[Black] can do more with an arched eyebrow than a crazy-car stuffed with clowns, and it’s that old Black magic that ignites THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS..." - 09/20/2018 Rolling Stone


"[Roth] makes a nostalgic fun house movie geared toward a younger crowd, and it pays off....The movie has the pleasingly demented texture of early Tim Burton." - 09/20/2018 New York Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "THE HOUSE... is built on solidly practical foundations, delivering its visual joys through an appealingly baroque production design and couching its narrative in remarkable set-builds rather than greenscreen backdrops." - 09/18/2018 Empire


"Roth, who grew up on this stuff, nails the look and tone of Spielberg, Joe Dante et al in the film, based on John Bellairs’ 1973 kids’ mystery novel of the same name." -- Grade: B - 08/19/2018 A.V. Club
