He goes and sees the woman he loves is still alive in that world and wants to stay. But when he discovers that this world has rules that differ from his world, he wants to leave but when he goes back to where the machine is, there's a fire and the machine is destroyed and the man who built it is killed. He later meets a woman from his world who also built a machine of her own but the officials there upon seeing her thinks she's crazy because her counterpart is alive and says she doesn't know her. So he tries to help her so that they can return home. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Strangeness Abounds
22 April 2001 | by HyperPupSee all my reviews

This film was not that bad but it would have been better as an episode in an anthology series like the Outer Limits or Twilight Zone. Take a slice of Sliders, a bit of Brave New World and a little of the famous Shirley Jackson story "The Lottery" and then you have the concept of this movie. Not bad but not super, though worth a look if re-run on television.
