Nathan Barr’s music for THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS released digitally today

house-clock-walls OSTBack Lot Music has released today the digital soundtrack album for Eli Roth’s new gothic fantasy film, THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, which stars stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, and Kyle MacLachlan.

The movie is derived from the beloved 1973 children’s book written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey. The film follows a young boy who goes to live with his magical uncle in a creaky old house haunted by the original owner’s ghost, who hid within the house a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world.

The film’s original music was composed by Nathan Barr (TRUE BLOOD, HOSTEL, CABIN FEVER), which features the historic 20th Century Fox Wutlitzer organ that Barr restored in order to use on the soundtrack (see video below). 

The Amblin Entertainment production hit theaters today, September 21, via Universal Pictures.
