HOUSE OF CLOCKS (DVD)

Customer Reviews

It gets so confusing that I may have to go back and watch it again.
Jery Tillotson
All the gore scenes (brief and not very explicit) are really poor, the effects are very shoddy and they just don't work.
A. Griffiths
I've read that this is tame for Fulci but I find it handled rather well.

Fulci's sucess is a teeter-totter of unravelled contents and zombie-head explosions, but House of Clocks isn't a gore epic. I enjoyed this movie because of the inventive plot-concept Fulci uses to engage, not confuse--as in some of his flicks such as City of the Walking Dead. The characters, a trio of cleptos, find themselves caught up in a time warp started when they accidentally kill an old couple in their clock-ridden mansion. Don't give up until the end, the twist is deadly and I admit, it put a twisted smile on my face. There are a few gory moments--a lot of bullet wounds--in this movie, but if that's all you care about, then look somewhere else. Fulci fans need this as much as I need a damn good zombie movie.

HOUSE OF CLOCKS is the best post-1982 movie Lucio Fulci ever made, and delivers the same style of shock violence as his zombie movies.
Made for Italian TV, but pulled because it was too gory, CLOCKS will certainly never be shown on British or US TV due to the extremely graphic bloodshed on display, some of which is easily as nasty as his full blown horror movies.
The plot involves a trio of unlikeable petty thugs, who accidentally kill an old couple who live in a house full of ornate antinue clocks. They don't know that the murdered couple are serial killers (and very mad, bloodthirsty ones at that!). Wose yet, is that when they die, the clocks stop. Once the clocks start turning backwards, the couple return from the grave and set out to get revenge.
Effectively blood spillage mixes well with old-style shocks (including chainsaws suddenly smashing through doors), and its' novel idea makes this a much better bet than the hopeless SWEET HOUSE OF HORRORS, which was shot back-to-back with this.
As yet unseen in the States or in the UK, HOUSE OF CLOCKS is essential viewing for Fulci fans, and a good bet for gore fans also.

A lot of fans seem to dislike this film but I think it mixes story along with high levels of gore and violence. Happy to have it in my collection and I watch it often along with The Beyond and New York Ripper. Not really anything bad about this film to me, solid piece of horror from one of the greats. RIP.

It's always said when it comes to Lucio Fulci fans are split in the middle on his career. I myself am a big fan of Lucio Fulci, but I do understand why some people dislike his work. But the one thing I think even Fulci fans can agree on is after 1982 he seemed to have lost his edge. Most of the later day Fulci flicks I have seen lacked compared to his earlier work.

The House of Clocks for me is no different and I'm actually surprised at all the positive reviews. While I wouldn't say The House of Clocks is a bad movie it just for me falls flat. The House of Clocks was actually made for TV, but never aired on Italian TV as it was seen as too gory so it got a theatrical release instead.

The House of Clocks was written by Gianfranco Clerici & Daniele Stroppa from a story written by Lucio Fulci. The story wasn't bad it actually has a pretty decent premise. The screenplay however is rather weak; horror films in general aren't know for their great scripts, but you need something good enough to at least keep things interested when there is nothing happening.

The script is no worse than some other ones out there, but it does lack. The characters are pretty much the run of the mill horror movie characters. The old couple while clichéd were probably the most interesting of all the characters. Lucio Fulci in his career always seemed to be hit or miss even within the same movie. I have always though liked Fulci's visual style and sometimes he could make a movie a lot creepier than it should have been.

With The House of Clocks, Fulci actually does manage to build some atmosphere, but I felt he never used his location to full advantage. The outside of the house did have a creepy vibe at night and the inside of the house was big and should have been explored more.

This is a very weird film by Italian goremeister Lucio Fulci that was originally made for an Italian TV horror series called "House Of Doom" but was deemed too violent to be shown on TV. It concerns a wealthy elderly couple in a large estate which the husband has filled with all manner of ticking clocks and timepieces he has collected over the years. They seem benign at first but are revealed to be insane. They have murdered their niece and nephew-in-law and entombed their rotting corpses in the estate's chapel dressed in wedding attire. The wife, Sara, also murders the maid in the greenhouse when she discovers the corpses and threatens to leave. Meanwile, three fresh faced pot-smoking thieves (two guys and a girl) decide to rob the estate. Things go awry and the elderly couple is killed along with their one-eyed gardener. When the old man dies, his grandfather clock stops ticking and all the other clocks follow suit. The young thieves panic and try to get out but the couples' three big black Dobermans stand guard trapping them inside. Then all the clocks start spinning backwards and time begins reversing. The dead gardener, maid and elderly couple come back and begin killing the thieves leaving only the girl watching helplessly while the dead niece and nephew-in-law also return to life and kill the elderly couple! Whew! As if this wasn't enough, the whole thing turns out to be a nightmare experienced by the thieves simultaneously before they broke into the house! After discussing the "dream" and laughing it off, they decide NOT to rob the house and drive off only to die in a bloody car accident when the black cat they had found and put in a bag leaps out and mauls the driver's face causing him to run off an embankment. Well. As for complicated plot twists, this takes the cake.Read more ›
