Audience Reviews for The House of Clocks
The sweet old couple who are not what they seem are brilliant. Truly deserve to enter the horror canon as adorned creepy villains. While the home invaders might just be the dumbest humans ever. I think it was all the pot they smoked. Otherwise, incredibly gory considering it was made for TV - nails driven through necks, panty sniffing, shot gun blasts, animal cruelty, and did you know that our intestines are actually worms? Story makes absolutely NO SENSE!
Lucio Fulci, Italy's own, inimitable master of grue, delivers the groceries in this almost absurdly gory made-for-tv(!) movie. Though not in the same league as "The Beyond" or "City of the Living Dead", both of which "Clocks" vaguely resembles, this surprisingly nasty bit of supernatural hokum showcase many of Fulci's trademark touches (copious splatter, vicious animals, zombies) while also taking its time to build up a bit of tension and atmosphere before the mayhem starts in earnest. The central gimmick, something to do with time going backwards while a trio of scuzzy criminals get chased around a mansion by a creepy elderly couple, makes almost no sense at all... but that's par for the course in a Fulci movie, and besides, you don't go into this sort of thing for the plot. "House of Clocks" is goofy, gory, cruel fun for those with a taste for Italian-flavored horror.
Awesome later Fulci film. Original plot, creepy atmosphere, blood, horror, old people hellbent on destruction...A nice surprise after films like Murder Rock in the mid 80s.
