Paolo Paoloni & Bettina Milne are an old couple obsessed with clocks who seem to be perfectly content with their lives - even if that involves keeping the corpses of their nephew & niece, who they have killed some years ago, in the attic, nailed to their deathbeds, no less, & occasionally killing one of their maids. But then, a trio of youngsters (Karina Huff, Kieth Van Hoven, Peter Hintz) arrive & they want to rob the couple. Soon though, it gets nasty & violent, & the youngsters shoot the oldtimers & their disfigured gardener (cult fave Al Cliver). But then time seems to move backwards & it gets really nasty, as the old couple & the gardener are revived again & making attempts on the youngsters' lives with almost everything in the book from wooden stakes to chainsaws. But as time moves back some more, even nephew & niece reawake, & they are going for uncle & auntie, in the end taking their place ...

The next day, the youngsters wake up in their car as if nothing had happened, thinking it was all a bad trip. Even the cat they suffocated in a plastic bag the day before is alive again - violently attacking them while they are driving, causing their car to crash & killing them all ...

 

Actually, this movie has some really good concepts which could have made it into fine art movies - the old couple killing their nephew & niece but nursing their corpses, time running backwards having one relive his past sins (okay, so this one made it into the bittersweet Groundhog Day, definitely not an art movie) -, but when director Lucio Fulci - not a man of subtleties - takes over directorial reigns, you just know the these concepts get a more visceral treatment, of course including rotten corpses & gore galore. That said, La Casa nel Tempo is actually one of his finer works of his late period (which in this context includes everything he did past 1985, when the heyday of Italo horrors were over), due to beautiful photography, nice settings, fast-paced storytelling & a story in which Fulci's typical lacks of logic make sense (if you know what I mean). The actors are completely wooden though.
