Preview, Cate Blanchett and Jack Black bring kid-friendly frights in “The House with a Clock in its Walls”

Remember “Goosebumps?” Yeah, Jack Black’s all about the kid-friendly horror genre. Got to start them off somewhere.

This time, he’s paired up with Oscar winner Cate Blanchett for a film based on Eric Kripke’s novel, “The House With a Clock in its Walls.”

He’s weird Uncle Jonathan, Cate B. is his testy/scary/saucy neighbor. Yeah, witches and warlocks.’

Kyle MacLachlan is He Who Must Be Resisted.

It’s like Eli Roth made a period piece Harry Potter picture. Because Eli Roth is the director. 

You may recall Kripke created TV’s “Supernatural.” 

All good clean (pumpkin in the face) fun, right?

This one opens Sept. 21.
