"Their World Is Closer Than You Think"


  • Director: Mark Waters
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Science Fiction & Fantasy,
  • Studio: Paramount
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 120 Mins

Goblins, trolls and griffins populate this adaptation of the bestselling book series that plays like a horror movie for kids. Young British actor Freddie Highmore takes dual roles as twin brothers Jared and Simon, who move into a creepy old mansion in New England with their sister (Sarah Bolger) and recently separated mother (Mary-Louise Parker), where they discover an ancient "field guide" that reveals a hidden world of fairies and monsters. The terrific CGI creatures are so free of cuteness that even the good characters - such as honey-eating sprite Thimbletack (voiced by Martin Short) and bird-munching hobgoblin Hogsqueal (voiced by Seth Rogen) - may give younger viewers nightmares. But children who enjoy being scared will find the film's chases, magical spells and battles utterly gripping.
