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

The film was released theatrically in 1973 for only a limited time, as the distributor - Cinemation - went bankrupt during the first week the film was released. Only in 1988 did the film resurface on video, through MPI Home Video. Only this version has Peter Fonda's opening remarks about the environment. Subsequent DVD releases do not include this.

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

Ronald: I don't think you have to leave anything behind. Just have a beautiful time like all the other junk litter in the universe, then say goodbye. I don't know what else to tell you. Perpetuation and all the crap that goes with it is a big hoax anyway.

mysteriously appealing low budget sci-fi pic
26 November 2002 | by shags_See all my reviews

As other people have commented, there is something mysteriously appealing about this movie. At first it looks like a bit of hippy fun for director Peter Fonda, and probably was. I purchased it for $3 dollars in a second hand video shop for it's 'Tron' like front cover. I then found no computer special effects in the movie at all. My copy is called 'Nuclear Escape', and looking on the net, i found it to have been called derranged also. Intriguingly odd.
