AMITYVILLE 1992: ITS ABOUT TIME
Amityville 1992: It's About Time is not tongue-in-cheek but it never takes proceedings entirely seriously either it more sets out to be a jolly carnival ride. It is well put together by director Tony Randel. The film works best when playing on the psychology of the characters Stephen Macht turning brooding and obsessive and who, in one whacked-out scene, pulls a gun on Jonathan Penner accusing him of fucking Shawn Weatherly; Megan Wards transformation from bubbly teen to out-to-kill temptress luring her boyfriend to his death. There is weird play between rooms that open into the past, goo that appears in peoples bed one minute and not the next, and the evil clock that starts burrowing its cogs and screws into the walls of the house. The film gets much sillier when it is required to rely on the usual barrage of slime and makeup effects, it falling down here because these are not particularly good. Especially poor is the body that comes out of the bath after Jonathan Penner and, in particular, the silly scene where Megan Wards boyfriend is melted down to a flattened face in a puddle of goo. Mostly though, the film is enjoyably enthusiastic fun.
