The Mystery of the Clock on the Wall is an 80’s-style film, in which the children’s and family’s atmosphere appears in an incredible mixture of the dark and frightening, very much in the ET – The Extraterrestrial style, and this example is not by chance.
Steven Spielberg, director of the great alien classic, checked The Mystery of the Clock on the Wall and, following Eli Roth, director of the plot, he really liked the result and sees in this plot the possibility of passing the torch to a future generation. He comments:
“I told Steven that the Amblin Entertainment films and that they were very important to me, that it was very important to help continue the brand – and reschedule it, not only make a film that mimics that tone, but really do something that be in the spirit of these films. Then Steven said, “You really did that. It is not a parody or imitation, it is your own work. The direction, the writing, everything goes hand in hand, and you are really carrying the torch. So, let’s see how the audience feels about it. I loved the movie. I feel like this generation of kids hasn’t seen a movie like this in a while. “
But as Eli Roth said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly, it will be interesting to see how audiences feel about the film, but the answer may also depend on whether they got to watch similar old storyline films. There is no guarantee that the new generation will like it, but we will soon discover, as the film arrives this week, on September 20, entering the pre-Halloween film vibe, a time when the desire for slightly frightening narratives arises for families enjoy together at home or in theaters.
Is there a new wave of classic futures being created right in front of our noses?
