4.0 out of 5 stars It's about relationships (including temporal) October 30, 2006
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprises galore! July 28, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
What a suspensful flick this was! The story is interesting and quite complex. I have noticed that a lot of films kind of branch-off into different sub-plots, but this film doesn't, it has a main story. That makes it easy to follow. The characters were beleivable and that really adds to the horror. I must take away one star, simply because this film was a little to gross than it needed to be. For example, what was the disgusting and un-necessary deal with that guy who was "sinking" into the floor?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, Awful Overall Film Package May 11, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 !!!???!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Time for more Amityville of this caliber October 8, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.......

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable horror January 7, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Amityville-It's About Time is a fun movie for horror fans. The Amityville Horror is back again, this time encompassed in an antique clock with a sinister history. I don't know why, but I found this movie unintentionally hilarious, the father of the family gets bit by a dog and slowly goes mad-as the result of his proximity to the "cursed" clock of course! The teen daughter turns seductive-also a victim of the clock's doings. The neighborhood psychic is the only one who seems like she can help...I liked this movie a lot, but I am perplexed by the ending. What exactly happened there? I don't want to give things away so I won't say more, but it is rather confusing.
