The film began when Lewis Barnavelt (played by Owen Vaccaro) who had just been orphaned moved to the city of New Zebedee, Michigan to live with his mysterious uncle, Jonathan Barnavelt (played by Jack Black).
Jonathan turns out to be a mediocre, though well-meaning, magic knight, while his next-door neighbor and good friend Florence Zimmermann (played by Cate Blanchett) is a much stronger wizard.
Jonathan’s house was previously owned by Isaac (played by Kyle McLachlan) and Selenna Izard (played by Renee Elise Goldsberry), creepy couples who have dedicated their lives to black magic and plan to realize the end of the world.
Before he died, Isaac built the eponymous clock he hid somewhere inside the wall of the house, where he was still constantly trying to pull the world into magical alignment, which would allow him to destroy the world.
Sometime on Halloween night Lewis who played with Tarby (played by Sunny Suljic) read the spell book and awakened Selena. This resulted in a series of confrontations with other magicians because Selena intended to destroy the world like her husband.
