Amityville 1992: It’s About Time
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Horror
Director(s): Tony Randel (Ticks, Rattled, Hellraiser II)
Writer(s): Christopher DeFaria & Antonio Toro (both of Amityville: A New Generation)
Starring: Stephen Macht, Dean Cochran

Of all the series to get a multitude of sequels, excluding the Witchcraft films, the Amityville Horror saga is probably the least recognized. It comes as a surprise to even horror geeks that there were actually eight films made. This doesn’t include the remake either. Horror fans’ lack of knowledge of the films mostly comes from the series ditching any attempts to number the series after the fourth entry. Amityville 1992: It’s About Time is the sixth film of the bunch, and even though I’ve yet to see most of the them, it’s probably one of the best.

The plot to It’s About Time is simple and not all that new. Jake Sterling (Macht), an architect who is the father of two teenagers, comes home from his latest business trip with an antique clock that, amazingly enough, came from the now-destroyed Amityville house. Soon enough a friendly neighborhood dog attacks Jake, his son gets accused of perpetrating a variety of ghastly crimes, his innocent daughter becomes rebellious, and going back to Jake, he goes all out insane.

But wait, there’s more.
Holy shit! It’s Dean Cochran! Yes, the man who would go onto battle sharks in Shark Zone, terrorists in the 9/11 mimicking Air Marshal, and generic baddies in Target of Opportunity is in It’s About Time! Cochran plays the football player boyfriend of the daughter, and meets his death in a very melting manner.

Unlike the earlier Amityville films, It’s About Time is horror-focused rather than just supernatural. Director Tony Randel had previously directed Hellbound: Hellraiser II, so he knew how to direct a psychological horror film revolving around a demonic object going into this. It’s far from perfect, but it’s creepy enough that it served up a good time before it became a tad bit too silly in its third act. It does manage to pep up for the finale though.
DVD: Out via Lions Gate thanks to their acquisition of the Trimark library a while back, Amityville: It’s About Time not only lacks the 1992, but is also barebones.
