Storyline

During a time of waning global resources, a crew of young researchers travel into the future to escape an apocalypse before the shutdown of their time transfer project. They find that some type of disaster has de-populated the Idaho region and, by implication, the nation or perhaps the world. Facing an unknown, barren future of abandoned towns and deserted vehicles; void of radio signals or any signs of air or land traffic, they encounter an abandoned freight train filled with bagged bodies. Their further discoveries of humanity's future fate is somewhat less than rosy. They also learn their time travel was not without significant costs to their own health. After one of the group travels further into the future, she encounters a family in a futuristic automobile; implying humankind has recovered from the disaster (or have they?) Written by ozman

Trivia

A long strip of red Dymo tape runs across the transfer control box. At one point late in the film, the camera gets close enough that part of it is legible. It says: "...LASSES,RINGS,WATCHES,BRACELETS, ETC USE MAT..." This apparently refers to the compartment box in the transfer station in which all metal objects must be placed. See more »

Goofs

When Karen returns to the camp to find everyone dead, in the establishing shot, her face is caked with dirt, but in subsequent close-ups, and all other shots, her face is clean. See more »

Quotes

Future Girl: Are you sure that was one of them?
Future Woman: Of course it was.
Future Girl: What happens when we run out?
Future Woman: We just put another one in. We won't need another for quite aways.
Future Girl: I didn't mean that. I meant what if we run out of all of them or we can't even find any?
Future Man: They'll figure out another way for us.
Future Woman: We can use something else.
Future Girl: But what if that's too hard or expensive and what if they decide they can't change? We'll use each other then, won't we?

My choice for the best bad film, ever.
21 July 1999 | by ophieSee all my reviews

I absolutely -love- this movie, I actually own a copy (was difficult to find). My family and friends who I've made sit through it think I'm crazy, but there's isn't anything about this movie I don't like.

I can't really explain the plot, too well, but I'll give it a try. There's these kids involved in an experiment that sends them into the future. To get to the future, they have to get onto a machine, and can't be wearing clothes (gratuitous underwear shots!@#). In the future, they find nothing; no people, no buildings. Just desert. They have to figure out why there aren't any people. Somehow the group of them get stuck in this desolate future. I won't give away any more... I will say, though, that it's got the coolest ending ever.

I like to consider this movie sorta the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of the 1970's...
