What’s up, dudes? I’ve got Shawn, Jaime, and Pax from the Cult Film Club with me here to dive into the 1984 sci-fi flick “Trancers”! We really get into it because this one’s got it all!


The evil killer psychic Whistler has a unique power: he can turn the weak-willed into zombie-like creatures called trancers! When he travels to the past to murder the ancestors of the council, hard boiled neo-noir Trooper Jack Deth subsequently follows him.

It seems that anyone could be entranced! Jack fights off a mall Santa, a tanning salon owner, and even a possessed police detective in his pursuit of Justice. He also gets help from his own ancestor, and visits a punk rock club. Oh yeah, and he even manages to save the day! Spoiler alert: beware of former ball players throwing trash on roofs!

Zombies? Check. Psychics? Yep. Time Travel? Definitely. Falling in love with your own great-great-grandma? Of course!  So put some grease in your hair, equip your long second watch, and head to a punk rock club to dig this episode!
