TRANCERS (Charles Band, 1985)
Empire Pictures 16mm (Theatrical)
"Security? We've got trouble at the North Pole!" In the year 2247, future cop Jack Deth is closing in on Public Enemy Numero Uno: Martin Whistler, a nefarious dude who can control lesser beings with his mind, turning them into violence-crazed zomboids known as "Trancers." However, before he can be captured, Whistler escapes to the past through his ancestral bloodline, inhabiting the body of a respected detective in 1985 Los Angeles. His plan? To eliminate the forefathers of those pursuing him generations later. Obviously Deth's the only man who can foil the assassinations, but is he ready to take on the '80s?
Easily one of Empire Pictures' best films, TRANCERS weighs heavily…
