Goofs

When looking up the song about the Star Handled Stranger, Dr McKenzie and his colleague comment that not many people could read back in those days (the late 19th century). In fact, literacy rates for white Americans were very high in the mid and late 19th century. At the time of the Civil War, somewhere around 90% of white men could read and write. Literacy rates on the frontier a generation later would have likely been somewhat lower but literacy for whites would have been the rule, not the exception. See more »

Fantastic
15 June 2002 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

"Timestalkers" is without doubt the very best of all time travel films, it`s well acted, and directed, and it is not spoilt by OTT special effects.

Bill Devane is great in the lead role, and it`s nice to see Klaus Kinski in a more commercial type role.

The basic plot centres around an old trunk and it`s contents picked up at a car boot sale (garage sale in the US), a photo revels in the distance a man with a very modern gun, and so our journey starts, and it`s edge of the seat stuff all the way....

See it if you can. Score: 10/10
