Jack Deth is a trooper in Angel City, circa 2247, mopping up the last of the disciples of the Martin Whistler. Whistler uses his psychic power to 'trance' those with weak minds and force them to obey his every desire. Whistler had been thought to be dead by now, but he's alive and well, and in the year 1985. Whistler's plan - to hunt down the ancestors of the City Council. With the Council disbanded, nothing is to stop Whistler from controlling the city. That's where Jack Deth fits in. Jack is sent back in time by inhabiting the body of his ancestor. The only problem is that Whistler's ancestor is a police detective, and he's begun trancing people back in 1985. With the help of Lena, a strong-minded punk rock girl, he must find and protect Hap Ashby, a former baseball pitcher now living on Skid Row, and face Whistler in a final confrontation.

It's hard to believe that this movie is 30 years old. And still stands strong today. And what many forget is that it takes place during Christmas. In fact one of the best scenes in Helen Hunt getting ready for work helping a mall Santa. Which in return leads to a great battlesequence at center court of the mall. This movie was so far ahead of its time I amazed that it has not been remade yet to date.

The movie has been released on VHS, DVD, Fullmoon Streaming, and now available on Blu-Ray. With a strong cast and great visuals Trancers will put a little Ho Ho Ho in your Sci-Fi Christmas. No need for the Hallmark Channel when you have Jack Death!

For me Trancers gets...
4 Bloody Brains out of 5!
