A widowed father Jake Sterling returns home from a business meeting in Amityville. He brings home a gift for his two teenage kids: an eerie looking old mantle clock. What he doesn’t know, is the clock has an evil past, being created by a 15th century French necromancer. The clock is tied to the evil past of Amityville.
Soon after placing it on the fireplace mantle, he is attacked by the local neighborhood dog, leaving his ex-girlfriend Andrea to take care of him. As Jake’s son and a neighbor get closer to finding out the legend of the clock, all hell breaks loose as hedges are set on fire, the dog is murdered, time begins to skip hours and slow down, Jake’s daughter becomes seductive, and many people around them begin to die. Now, no one is safe from the terror as the clock begins to become the house itself.
This was another one of those “is it over yet” parts. There were no good scenes in it, at all. Try to avoid this part, as well.
I didn’t like this movie because it wasn’t even like the original. Ever since “The Evil Escapes”, the movie gets worse on each part. This one is all about a clock that came from the house. It does have a few creepy scenes but they’re not really worth the time just to see them.
The psychologist does a horrible job on acting. Each time he talks or shows himself, I wished he would have died. To me, he didn’t die fast enough and when he did, they didn’t even show it.
As for the main woman, she’s kind of weird. First, she doesn’t want to sleep with her ex-husband because of being faithful to her new boyfriend. About 2 minutes later, she’s in bed with him. To top that off, about 20 minutes later, she’s in bed with the psychologist. When that happens, you just want to reach through the screen and slap her a few times.
This part shouldn’t have been made. As I stated before, try to avoid this part because you’ll probably regret watching it.
