Amityville: It's About Time is a 1992 horror movie that focuses on a cursed antique clock that is brought into a family's home in California. Directed by Tony Randel and written by Christopher DeFaria and Antonio Toro, this is the sixth movie in the Amityville series but is not a direct continuation of the events in the previous movies.

The movie opens with an archaeologist discovering the antique clock during a dig in New York. He immediately recognizes it as a cursed object and sends it to his colleague, Jacob Sterling (Stephen Macht), a widower and father of two who lives in California. Jacob is an expert in clocks and antiques, and he becomes fascinated with the clock's design and history.

The clock soon reveals its sinister powers as it begins to manipulate time and space. Jacob's son, Rusty (Damon Martin), is the first to notice that strange things are happening in their house. Objects move on their own, and the clock seems to have a life of its own. Rusty's curiosity leads him to do some research on the clock's background and he learns about its connection to the horrors that took place in the infamous Amityville house.

As the family becomes more and more ensnared by the clock's influence, strange and terrifying things start to happen. Jacob's daughter Lisa (Megan Ward) becomes possessed by an evil spirit, and her behavior becomes increasingly erratic. Meanwhile, Jacob's girlfriend Andrea (Shawn Weatherly) is also drawn into the clock's orbit and starts to experience haunting visions that threaten to drive her insane.

Jacob soon realizes that he must destroy the clock to break the curse and save his family from the malevolent forces that have taken hold in their home. But as he tries to get rid of it, the clock becomes more powerful, and its grip on the family grows stronger.

Amityville: It's About Time plays on the common fear of haunted objects, like dolls or old furniture, and the idea that cursed items carry the taint of their previous owners or the traumatic events that occurred in their presence. The movie also explores the theme of time, and how it can be manipulated, changed, and twisted by supernatural forces. As the clock's power grows, the family becomes trapped in a loop of repeating events and the line between reality and nightmare blurs.

The performances are convincing, with Stephen Macht delivering a solid performance as the patriarch struggling to save his family from the clock's curse. Shawn Weatherly is also notable as Andrea, bringing a sense of vulnerability to her character as she confronts the clock's malevolent influence.

While the movie is not particularly scary, it uses practical effects and camera tricks to create some unsettling moments, like the clock's face melting or characters disappearing and reappearing in different parts of the house. The use of the clock's chimes throughout the movie also adds a creeping sense of dread and foreboding.

Overall, Amityville: It's About Time is an entertaining horror movie that manages to be both suspenseful and cheesy at the same time. It may not be a classic of the genre, but it delivers some thrills and a satisfying conclusion that ties up the loose ends of the story.

Amityville: It's About Time is a 1992 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
