"Jack Deth is a kind of cop/bounty hunter in the bleak Los Angeles of the future.
He's become obssessed with chasing Whistler - an evil criminal who uses powerful hypnotic powers
to convert people into zombie like creatures known as trancers.
Whistler has managed to escape through time travel and is loose in 1980s L.A. but Deth is on his trail."
(IMDb)

Trancers is a fun low-budget action flick directed by Charles Band
and starring Tim Thomerson, Helen Hunt, Michael Stefani, Art LaFleur and Telma Hopkins.

Thomerson was ultracool as Jack "I want to watch Peter Gunn" Deth
and Helen Hunt was cute and lovable as his lover/partner Leena.

I liked how the future L.A. "Angel City" looked but obviously this was a low-budget film
so they couldn´t show more of it.

Some of the sequences are amazing, like the scene including children watching while Deth kills the trancer santa.
Pure Cannon film mentality [Big Grin]

Thomerson had some cool cadgets, especially the "long second" wrist watch rocked.
We don´t need Matrix, we already have Trancers.

It´s a short film, about 76 minutes, but i like it this way.

Trancers has six direct to video sequels.
I´m going to watch part II next but don´t have the others.

Say it with me now...

"Jack Deth is back... and he's never been here before!"

Classic video rental stuff. Cannon, EV - gold!

Here is the great Tim Thomerson's brilliant stand-up version of the movie Stagecoach, a few years before he became Jack Deth. Enjoy.
