Product Description

The lost sequel shot in 1988 and released in 2013 Jack Deth, the super cop from the future, has put away three centuries worth of time traveling criminals. But Deth's most dangerous collar, the ultraviolent assassin Edlin Shock, has escaped from her maximum security holding cell and won't rest until she's exacted revenge... Meanwhile, Deth is trying to make a life for himself as a private eye in 1988 Los Angeles with his hot-blooded girlfriend Lena (played by Academy Award winning actress Helen Hunt). Relationship troubles are just the beginning of Deth's problems when he learns that Edlin Shock has followed him back in time. Aided by his former police chief McNulty, whose consciousness is inhabiting the body of a 13-year-old girl, Jack Deth will have to use his wits, as well as his fists, to save the past, present, and future!

Format: DVD
Fifty-cent Sci-Fi with a nod to The Terminator and Blade Runner; features a criminally underused Tim Thomerson and an early outing for Helen Hunt. Despite the budget director Band makes the most of his two `stars' and the plot, involving time travel, murderous zombie henchman and a washed up alcoholic baseball star, provides ample entertainment to keep even the most po-faced critic happy - its funny too! The set design is also sufficiently retro to more than satisfy fans of fifties Sci-Fi classics. One of those gems you'll return to time and again!

His name is Deth. He hunts Trancers. Even in shoulder pads.
Apart from the frightning assumption that there will be an eighties revival in the 23rd century this is a jolly fun outing for Thomerson and Hunt.
Both look good and despite the low budget give convincing performances. Good fun is had by all without losing any of the integrity or drama.
A worthy film that perhaps does not get the recognition it deserves.

By A Customer on 3 Sept. 2003
Format: DVD
Charles Band's low-budget gem creaks into the 21st century. It's a budget title for a reason, as the DVD transfer looks like its been taken from a well-used rental video copy and, despite being a "proper" movie, is presented here only in 4:3 full screen format. Technological disappoinments aside, Trancers is still an enjoyable, cheap and cheerful B-movie, featuring a time-travelling Tim Thomerson and a pre-fame Helen Hunt dressed in a Santa outfit. It's daft and dated and looks like it was made for about sixpence, but it's extremely likeable and, for some reason, just works. It also spawned 4 sequels, each one worse than the last.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
It isn’t often than I am compelled to write a laudatory review over a recent Amazon purchase; but, by gad, those stalwart individuals at 88 Films have galvanized my finger to do just that! They are to be heartily congratulated after having done much sterling work with their exemplary Bluray edition of Charles Band’s seemingly ageless ‘Trancers’. Much like a cinematic Dorian grey, this plucky little sf/actioner from the early 80’s lacks the malingering tarnish one might initially expect from its age and milieu; and yet; here we are in 2015 (for better or worse) and ‘Trancers’ glistering veneer is not only wholly unblemished, but greatly renewed by this magnificently detailed HD transfer; which, to these schlock-movie obsessed eyes appears to have been authored meticulously, with enormous care and diligence.
I sincerely feel that this sterling edition of a much neglected B-film has been put together with considerably more élan, and palpably infectious love of genre than many of the more execrable examples of sf being shot today, with their relentlessly banal scripting, vapid performances, and worse; their pernicious overreliance of CGI. While I can accept many individuals may not share my enthusiasm for this wonderful confection; it is inconceivable to me how anyone, outside of a poorly lobotomized newt couldn’t appreciated the tangible filmmaking craft these talented folk put into it.
No doubt, at some later date, we will inevitably see a paltry, neutered, and exsanguinated version of ‘Trancers’ rebooted; but we shan’t see anything quite like the original again; making this delightfully pristine version all the more thrilling to those that have a genuine love of well-crafted pulp cinema.

Format: Blu-ray
finally the classic sci-fi 80's film is finally on blu-ray in beautiful 1:78:1 widescreen transfer
and i tell you what the picture quality looks amazing, very clear & sharp plus a new 5.1 Master audio mix
which does boost the sound quality big time
much better audio & picture quality than the old dvd release which was in 1:33:1 fullscreen format anyway

this review is about the comparisons between the 88films blu-ray and the Full moon featurres blu-ray
first of all the U.S. Full moon features blu-ray is ALL REGIONS anyway
so if your big fan of Trancers you can buy the U.S. blu-ray version anyway
the special features on the U.S. version is
a new 15min retrospective featurette CYBERCRIME
new interviews with Tim Thomerson, Charles band & Danny Bilson/Paul de meo only
no interview with Helen Hunt or Actor Art Lefeur unfortunately
a TV promo featurette with Tim thomerson, Helen Hunt & Megan ward recorded in 1990, only goes for 3-4mins
Complete trancers CITY OF LOST ANGELS segment,
which is the lost 25min sequel filmed in 1988 but never officially released to the public until now
the footage looks Digitally remastered only, not sure what the screen ratio is i think it's 1:78:1 widescreen but not sure
there's also a Photo still Gallery, and a new Audio commentary by Tim thomerson & Charles band

the 88FILMS blu-ray has the same HD transfer as the Full moon features
88FILMS also has the same special features as the U.S.
