Tick-Tock – Scary Fun Awaits in Saguache
“You’ll see, things are quite different here!” While movie-goers may recognize this line from the scary season’s rising-star film, “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” it also sums up this psychological thriller’s core plot.
The good news is that this film is also rated PG, which means that some of the younger kids can still enjoy a good Halloween-ish movie. The film is based on a 1973 juvenile mystery fiction novel. While you need to “know-your-kid,” they recommend age 11 plus. Catch this one playing at Cozy Castle Cinema this weekend, October 12 – 14.
In this weekend’s film, “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” ten-year-old Lewis goes to live with his oddball uncle in a creaky old house that contains a mysterious `tick tock’ noise. He soon learns that Uncle Jonathan and his feisty neighbour, Mrs Zimmerman, are powerful practitioners of the magic arts. When Lewis accidentally awakens the dead, the town’s sleepy facade suddenly springs to life, revealing a secret and dangerous world of witches, warlocks and deadly curses.
Showtimes are Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 4 p.m. & 7 p.m.; and Sunday at 4 p.m.
