For the sixth installment, the Amityville series is back in California, as in Amityville: The Evil Escapes ("Amityville 4"). This time, Jacob Sterling (Stephen Macht), a single father and an architect, brings the "Amityville Curse" home with him by way of a possessed clock that he picked up on a business trip to Amityville. The fact that the clock is the source of the burgeoning evil our cast of characters encounters is one that they don't really figure out for themselves until near the end of the film, but it's not a spoiler to reveal that to readers, because it's clear from the very first scene that the clock means trouble. So this is one of those films where the audience will be egging characters on to figure out something that the audience already knows, and which it often seems the characters should more easily discern.

Director Tony Randel seems to have chosen the setting of the film to invite associations with the Poltergeist series. The suburban neighborhood of Amityville 1992: It's About Time, or "Amityville 6", looks very similar to the neighborhood in Poltergeist; for all I can remember of Poltergeist at the moment, it may very well be the same location. But it doesn't matter if it isn't, the desire is still there to latch on to same kinds of archetypes, so that evil invades generic U.S. suburbia, with the hope of making the fears more relatable and immediate for the audience. That's not the only film reference that Randel makes. One of the odder and more enjoyable ones, for which I still haven't figured out the symbolism, is a fairly literal quoting of Ed Wood's famous footage of Bela Lugosi in front of Lugosi's home, walking out of the front door with a black cape on (of course), and slowly going over to smell a flower.

I wonder if Fremantle Media is going for most consistently bad set of DVD Releases.
The basic Story of this film is very loosely associated with the Amityville mythos; it actually dates back to the time of some sadistic "necromancer"( the screenplay got it wrong, what they meant is "Necrophage")... but if you watch the film, you will see. And a Clock that was owned by the Necromancer/Necrophage, moves house from Amityville to a place on the West Coast. The Evil of the Clock then tries to take over.
The first half, or so, of the film is just abysmal, production wise, with the second half getting better, almost as if someone thought half way through shooting, "Oh, maybe we should check the dailies..?".
There are more Boom Sticks visible than EVIL DEAD 3, and More Mikes than Waynes World. The Audio is sort of Stereo/2.1 but not quite. It only uses two channels. Seems like it would have been better to package it on a VCD. Do NOT pay more more than 5 dollars for this DVD. And AVOID Fremantle Media DVD's.
It amazes me that the VHS version is better cropped, and has more visual quality than then the DVD. What on earth was Stephen Macht thinking !!!???!!!

Amityville Horror has enjoyed much success as both a true story and a franchise of follow up films that sometimes hit the target and other times missed entirely. Thankfully, Amityville:It's about time hits every target it sets out to. There is a very good storyline to propel the viewer along a-la demonically posessed clock that manages to cause its' owner's family members to turn against each other as well as provide the usual haunted house jitters the original first and second films did so well.

The film also hits on a nerve previously not heavily seen in the Amityville series, and that's out and out gore. The dad's festering dog bite is particularly difficult to watch, so if you are squeamish when it comes to gore, close your eyes each time the disgusting wound is revealed.

All in all, "Amityville:It's about time" is a first rate yet largely unknown thriller that definitely lives on with the best of the Amityville franchise. Tick.....tock.....tick......tock.......

In 1992, a Amityville came our way to haunt us all...again. This sixth outing is entitled, AMITYVILLE: IT'S ABOUT TIME. Although, definitely not as scary as the first two Amityville films, AMITYVILLE: IT'S ABOUT TIME is another worthy sequel.

Coming back from a business trip, JACOB STERLING (played by Stephen Mact) has brought a pretty exciting piece of furniture for his home. He is greeted by his beautiful girlfriend, ANDREWA (played by Megan Ward), and his two children, RUSTY (played by Damon Martin) and LISA (played by Shawn Weatherly). The piece of furniture he had bought is an old 18th century mantle clock. He had bought the clock from a house in Amityville, New York...112 Ocean Ave. to be exact. Once he places the clock on the manle, things begin happening. As Rusty gets read to head upstairs to get to bed, he turns the light out in the living room, where as he does so, the room changes into another, looking the living room to the Amityville house. He thinks nothing of it and goes off to bed.

The next morning, Jacob goes out for a run. He passes by his friendly neighbor, MRS. TETMANN (played by Terrie Snell), while she is walking her dog. He runs his endpoint up to a constructionsite and is ready to jog back home, until he finds Mrs. Tetmann behind him. Her dog begins growling at Jacob very viciously. The dog attacks Jacob, where he bits Jacob on the leg very badly, forcing Jacob to scratch the dog on the nose with piece of broken glass. After having found out the Jacob will be fine, where he has to stay in the hospital overnight for observation, Andrea agrees to stay with the Sterling's a little longer, taking care of everything. She runs into Mrs. Tetmann, and asks what happened. Andrea is strangely confused, for wasn't Mrs.
