The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Sealed Necromancy Book

original movie prop

It was based on the 1973 novel of the same name by John Bellairs, which was the first in a series of 12 books. The film follows a young boy, Lewis, who is sent to live with his uncle, Jonathan, in a creaky old house. He soon learns it was previously inhabited by an evil Warlock. This is the sealed screen used Necromancy Book seen in multiple scenes the film. Jonathan Barnavelt kept his necromancy book in a locked cabinet to keep its evil powers away from the world until Lewis Barnavelt eventually discovers the book and uses it to bring Isaac Izard back to life. Lewis’ mother visits him in his dreams and he laments that Tarby does not see him as a friend. She suggests that he take the forbidden book and perform a spell to impress Tarby. On Halloween night, Lewis performs a necromancy spell in a cemetery, accidentally summoning the ghost of Isaac who reinhabits his dead body. This particular book is the one that like the hero, has a controllable hand on the cover, but is sealed and cannot be opened. This would be used depending on the action being done by the actor rather it be throwing, running or an action that could possibly damage the main hero book.
