Amityville: It's About Time (1992)

aka Amityville 1992: It's About Time

The cover of Part VI implies that we're back in the original house - it's a LIE. Remember the cursed lamp? It's another of those kind of stories, except it's a clock not a lamp. But it's not as bad as Part IV was. In fact, even though the tone is more like a poor man's Poltergeist than an Amityville, I'm going to say it's the best sequel yet, although it takes ages to get to that state.
It lacks finesse ('cos Tony Randel), but the microwave scene in the kitchen, the one in front of the mirror, and, most ludicrous of all, the hilarious van moment are all memorable, and each for a different reason.
There are some glaring continuity errors. And considering how often it appeared onscreen the boom mic should've got its own credit.

2 hands of doom out of 5
