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.

One I have never seen, John.
I must try to catch it one of these days.
Best wishes, Pete.
Hmmm. You sure know how to pick the sleepy films that are good but somehow get little attention. I would enjoy this, I believe. Thanks!
Great pick!!! Trancers and the pretty much every Full Moon film of the 80s……
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!
At the very least, it is entertaining. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
