Trivia

The word "post" is used for mail, and the word "ring" is used for making a telephone call, standing out as non-American English usage. See more »

Goofs

The photos used in the movie are prints, not the analog instant photos they are supposed to be. This is revealed by their raster pattern when viewed through the magnifying glass (arguably, this could be an artifact of how the camera works). See more »

Very impressive small budget sci-fi thriller
17 November 2014 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

Time lapse is an independent film about a group of friends who discover a camera that can take pictures of the future. It's a nice concept and is executed very well.

This is only a small budget film with few special effects, instead it relies on a sharp script, good acting and an interesting story. It doesn't take long to set the scene and is always interesting. As things go from bad to worse for the three friends there are a number of tense scenes and some surprising plot turns.

As the film is set in one location it really requires strong performances from the cast and thankfully all three leads excellent as are all the supporting cast.

This is a clever, impressive and very entertaining film which really shows what can be done with a limited budget. This film deserves a much higher profile and I would expect it's current rating of 6.9 from 437 votes to increase over time.

Highly recommended.
