A group of small-time thieves decide to burglarize an isolated vila after they hear its only residents are an elderly couple and their maid. But when the robbery goes wrong and the group is trapped in the house, they discover the elderly couple are not quite what they seem.
Paolo Paoloni actually broke a rib during the scene where he struggles with the robbers. Because his character was supposed to be dead, he dealt with the pain for five minutes before the scene ended.
Peter, Tony, and Sandra are a group of small-time criminals that hear about an isolated Italian vila inhabited by an elderly couple, Vittorio and Sara Corsini. Thinking this will be an easy mark, the group heads out to knock over the house and make some quick money. When they arrive at the vila, they discover it is indeed occupied by an elderly couple, and that the pair has a massive collection of clocks. In fact, the house is full of them. When the trio burst into the house, they are surprised by Paul, the elderly couple's handyman. A gun goes off during the struggle, leaving Paul and the elderly couple dead. Oddly, all the clocks in the house stop right after these deaths. Peter, Tony, and Sandra decide to grab what they can and head out, but the guard dogs block their path and they are forced to spend the night in the house. As the night wears on, it becomes obvious that something is not right: all the clocks start running backwards and the blood stains have disappeared. Now, Peter, Tony, and Sandra must fight for their survival as they try to discover just what they have gotten themselves in to.
