The House with a Clock in Its Walls

Directed by Eli Roth
From the book by John Bellairs

I loved this book series as a kid. Super creepy, gothic atmosphere with amazing Edward Gorey illustrations:



My hope is that Eli Roth takes this as an opportunity to use his directing powers for good rather than evil. I'm not sure how it would be possible to cram gross misogyny into this story, but I worry that if anyone could find a way to do so, it would be him. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, though.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Looks fun! And it's Amblin, so hopefully that tips the scales away from the Eli Roth we all know and love to hate.
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?
