“A slice of history caught in amber, from a time when B-movie filmmakers tried to please their audience above all else.” – BLOODY DISGUSTING

Tim Thomerson (Dollman; Zone Troopers) thunders into his iconic role of time-traveling bounty cop Jack Deth in this sizzling slab of straight-up psychic sci-fiyahhh. The year is 2247 A.D! When Deth learns that a mind-controlling madman has whipped back three centuries to the mid-1980s, he shatters the time barrier to bring him back, dead or alive. But what Deth isn’t counting on is an army of obstacles including laser assassins, a drunk in a Santa suit, and a crew of knuckle-dragging punks listening to a hardcore version of “Jingle Bells!” Yep, it’s a Christmas movie, the most harrowingly hectic holiday blast of them all. With a young Helen Hunt (Twister) as Deth’s 20th century new wave partner, it’s a ten-fisted neonized post-nuke noir that will enslave your brain while you party like it’s 1985!
