While I love Tony DiTerlizzi’s art (see The Spider and The Fly for a picture-book example of what the man does), and he is thus much of the draw of the Spiderwick Books, I don’t think we’ll be making a family outing to this one. The DVD in a few years, perhaps.

“But I do know the PG classification is insane, especially considering what happens right after a father says he loves his son. This is a PG-13 movie, for sure. But what will cause nightmares for younger kids will delight older ones, since “The Spiderwick Chronicles” is a well-crafted family thriller that is truly scary and doesn’t wimp out.” — Roger Ebert
