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 »

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....
