HOUSE OF CLOCKS is part of a four-part movie series made for Italian television under the umbrella title House of Doom. Legendary Italian horror maestros Umberto Lenzi and Lucio Fulci each contributed two films for the series: Lenzi made HOUSE OF LOST SOULS and HOUSE OF WITCHCRAFT, while Fulci offered HOUSE OF CLOCKS and SWEET HOUSE OF HORRORS. One of Fulci’s more obscure movies, his first contribution to the series centres on a group of young thugs, intent on robbery, who break into the home of a seemingly harmless couple with an antique clock collection. Though the elderly couple seem an easy target, the young toughs find themselves entering deeper and deeper into a terrifying nightmare after they murder the couple, whose clocks begin to turn back time for the thieves and exact a horrifying revenge on them. Playing out like a Lucio Fulci version of a TWILIGHT ZONE episode, HOUSE OF CLOCKS is sure to please fans of the gore auteur, who is recognized the world over as the sultan of splatter. Here, he creates a surprisingly surrealist story with plenty of atmosphere and originality.
