Moviedrome Mondays: Trancers (1984)

I have posted a youtube video link to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s intro to director Charles Band’s 1984 sci-fi entry Trancers. The episode’s original airdate was August 13, 1989 (read here). Readers can read his transcript right here. As Cox implies here, Trancers is like a blend between The Terminator and Blade Runner. While by no means a classic, it is undeniably entertaining.

  1. It’s been years since I last saw Trancers. My main memories of it are a young Helen Hunt and Jack Deth’s line about “dry hair is for squids.” Happy days!

  2. Well I am just posting the episodes of Moviedrome in order on my blog, while simultaneously commenting on it myself as well as what Alex Cox thought. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
