One of the most surprising movies you’ll never see based on its premise alone:
“Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You’ll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.”
It’s potential to crash and burn was completely circumvented by superior writing and acting that elevated an amusing story about an absurd research project to an escapade of hypnotic intensity.
