Storyline

Nick creates a time machine out of an airplane and a Commodore-64, and shows it to his friends by taking them 50 years into the future. Nick sells the technology to Gen-Corp, a high-tech firm run by J.K. Robertson, whose office is in the mezzanine of a shopping mall. Robertson, however, turns out to be Evil, and uses the time machine to plunder the future. With the lives of himself and his friends at stake, Nick needs to use his time machine to travel a week back in time and convince himself not to give the demo to Robertson. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Time Wasters
8 January 2000 | by Vice-5See all my reviews

Among all films about time travel, "Time Chasers" is the worst! Showcased in MST3K, this sci-fi turd is about how a big-chinned physics teacher named Nick who dons a Castleton T-shirt and his dopey reporter girlfriend Lisa (who looks strangely a lot like Toni Tennille!) tries to save humanity's future from a corrupt hick CEO named Robertson, who's use for Nick's flying time machine is for his own twisted purposes!



MST3K really lambasted this flick, not only for its poor performances, but for its miniscule budget! The MST3K stars had a field day roasting "Time Chasers," and I had a hell of a good time watching it! However, I was pretty surprised when I read somewhere that David Giancola, the director of "Time Chasers" even thanked MST3K for showing his low denominator project on their show!! Hell, if I directed a turd like this movie, I wouldn't mind haven't it roasted, too!
