Did You Know?


In it's original release, the movie was officially titled "Amityville 1992: It's about time". When it was released on DVD almost 10 years later, it had a new box and the "1992" was dropped from the title. During the opening titles you can see a black box over the spot where "1992" should appear in the title. See more »

"Pure evil".
17 August 2013 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

After the abysmally dour filth instalment "The Amityville Curse", the sixth outing "It's about time" was a step in the right direction. Not perfect, but at least far from boring. Like the fourth film which had a cursed lamp (yep you're reading that right), this one too sets the curse in another household in another town, but the instrument used here is an antique clock that is purchased in Amityville. It unleashes a dark supernatural force that begins to control the family, as they start turning on each other and acting out of character. Directed by Tony Randel ("Hellraiser II: Hellbound" & "Ticks"), the straight-to-video "It's about time" is a nasty little horror film concentrating more so on its vivid special effects and grisly jolts then building anything in the way of suspense. Some of the imagery is atmospherically staged, while the ghastly make-up effects (outside of the black goo) had me thinking of "Hellraiser". Even throw in a touch of incest. The performances hold up well enough. Strong turns by Stephen Macht and Shawn Weatherly with the likes of Megan Ward and Nita Talbot rounding it off. Also Dick Millar makes a cameo. The concept had creative touches, however the story mechanics are quite fundamental, but at times it can go over-the- top and be very hysterical in its silly outbursts. Too bad I find the payoff to be weak.

"It's about time".
