Quotes

Host: Dinosaurs large and small fill my junkyard workroom. This one given to me by a friend 30 years ago. These given as toys to my daughters. And when they didn't play with them, I simply took them back. So with dinosaurs coming into my life, I often wondered, what would happen if I could go back into theirs. Dinosaurs, time machines. Put them together and you have a tale one million years old.

A Dark Tale
20 July 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the future, a time travel agency offers "The Time Safari", where client may kill animals like dinosaur, but specifically selected by the team, in order to not change the environment and consequently past. During one expedition, the traveler becomes scared with the huge dinosaur and leaves the protective path, shooting and stepping on the woods. When the team returns to their base, they realize that future has changed, and a further investigation showed that client stepped on a butterfly, with drastic consequences to mankind.

I recently saw Peter Hyams' "A Sound of Thunder" (2005) on DVD, with an extended version of this short tale of "The Ray Bradbury's Theater". I found the VHS where I taped this show and I watched again, and I found it darker and darker when comparing with the 2005 movie. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Safari no Passado" ("Safari in the Past")
