Trancers: 2247 collides with 1985 . . .

This entry was posted in Action, DVD, Videos & Movies, Sci-Fi by Snowfoxx on

When a 23rd century crime fighter heats it up in L.A., today. Or about twenty-eight years ago. Hard to believe Full Moon Pictures has been around that long, and Trancers, this sci-fi cult classic was one of the very first. It stars surfer dude Tim Thomerson as Jack Deth, a cop that can travel through time to bag his perp. This was was also one of the first movies for Helen Hunt. She is cast as a part-time Xmas mall elf by day, blue-haired punker by night, but the meeting of this unlikely duo is going to change the course of time, at least in L.A.

How did this all happen and how did it come to be in 1985? Well, you find out the history of Full Moon Pictures on your own, but do know that this was a direct to video movie, hence the lower budget. This was also one of the first movies produced that used this marketing technique, therefore creating major change in film advertising. This was also the first major leading role for Helen Hunt, and we all know the story of that.
