House of Magic (2013) New York Children's Film Festival 2014 (Updated)

An abandoned cat finds his way in to the supposedly haunted house of a kindly magician. When the magician is injured in an accident the cat and the other residents of the house must defend the house from the magicians nephew who wants to sell the house for a quick payday.

A MUST SEE IN 3D, this film is certainly a fine family film and will be wonderful on TV but on the big screen in 3D its a blast. This is what 3D films should be- planned for the process so things make you go oh wow, not the sort of thing where its used just for extra cash for tickets (Amazonia anyone?).

Trust me the flying birds, mad chases, things shooting out at you will make you reacting ways that 99% of 3D films never do.

And the story is really good. Once again we have great characters, great voice casting, funny lines, and a genuine sense of danger- maybe it won't be okay, because frankly bad things happen.

An absolute joy- I was hooked once I heard the Cure playing over the opening titles. When it ended I wanted to see it again, preferably in the company of the niece.

ADDENDUM: They've addes a screening on March 29th run out and see it in 3D- you'll thank me.
