When orphan Lewis Barnavelt is sent to live with his uncle Jonathan – who happens to be a Warlock – he enters a fantastical world of magic and sorcery. Hidden inside his uncle’s house is a magical clock, built by an evil wizard.
When the clock stops it will trigger the end of the world, so Lewis and Jonathan must find it before it's too late. Based on the first book in John Bellair’s creepy mystery series (first published in 1973), and featuring a star-studded cast – including Cate Blanchett, Jack Black and Kyle McLachlan.
