Both Fred Ward and Peter Coyote appeared together the previous year, 1981, in a movie called "Southern Comfort". In that movie Ward's character was called "Reese", the same name of Coyote's character in "Timerider". See more »
After Reese is mangled by the chopper's tail rotor, we get another full shot of the aircraft as it lands to pick up Lyle. However the rotor section looks undisturbed and void of any human flesh. It should be blood splattered (as in a bird strike) as it just destroyed a full grown human being. See more »
This film is a great example of what can be done with a low budget, decent story, and a great cast. The direction is broad, and at the same time both light-hearted and dark. I think it's a good example of balance in that regard. Please see my comments in the message board regarding the ending of the DVD version. I think you have to be able to remember back to the day - 1982 - to appreciate this movie. Superior low-budget time-loops starting with "The Terminator" were still 2 years away....
