Critic Reviews of "The House with a Clock in Its Walls"Globe and MailSeptember 21, 2018
A fantastical adventure, dandy ode to weirdos, and accessible anti-war allegory for all ages, especially 10-year-old boys.Detroit NewsSeptember 21, 2018
It runs out of steam at about the midway point and falls victim to clumsy, overcooked plotting. It's fun for a while, until it becomes more trick than treat.NPRSeptember 20, 2018
The short-term excitement of jump-scares and readily accessible spells are a poor trade-off for the steadily deepening mysteries and fears that have made Bellairs' book such an enduring classic.SlateSeptember 20, 2018
The House With a Clock in its Walls is a bullseye, perfectly balanced between funny and scary.NewsdaySeptember 20, 2018
Despite its special effects and two proven stars, "The House With a Clock in Its Walls" never manages to create the magic we keep hoping will materialize.Boston GlobeSeptember 20, 2018
A likably cast, mildly diverting Halloween appetizer that serviceably channels early Harry Potter.Kaplan vs. KaplanSeptember 27, 2018
Ultimately, the success of THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN THE WALL depends upon young Vaccaro --- and he delivers!Geeks of ColorSeptember 27, 2018

It has all the appearances of being a family Halloween dream, but director Eli Roth fails to keep The House with a Clock in Its Walls ticking over.Paste MagazineSeptember 26, 2018
Each of the following statements are true: 1) Eli Roth made a film based on a 1973 children's novel. 2) The film stars Jack Black. 3) It's a blast. Who knew?Seven DaysSeptember 26, 2018
