Skeleton Key
A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro) aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world. From the 2018 film The House with a Clock in Its Walls, this is Skeleton Key and main prop from the film. In the film, Florence Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett) is attempting to find the ticking clock in the walls of the mansion. Thanks to Lewis' genius, they've figured out that Isaac Izard’s (Kyle Maclachlan) death, caused by a demonic ritual, created a skeleton key that will open the clock. This clock would allow him to turn back time and ultimately erase humanity from existence.
