    Synopsis


    Time After Time
    It's H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell) versus Jack the Ripper (David Warner) in the fanciful Time After Time -- and, per the film's title, the chase extends from the 19th century to the 20th. Wells has built a time machine in his cellar, which the Ripper uses as a means of escape. Both men find themselves in 20th century San Francisco, and, after a period of adjustment, they make themselves at home. The plot takes a dark turn when the Ripper, disappointed that Wells' dreams of a Utopian future have not come to fruition, resumes his murderous activities. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I have loved this story ever since I saw it in the theaters in 1979. The effects are somewhat dated nowadays, but for the time they fit. Also, the idea o H.G. Wells having to chase Jack the Ripper into San Francisco's future is a hoot. The stars make the story truly believable.

      Novel concept that not only did H.G. Wells write a story about a time machine, but he actually invented one and had to chase Jack The Ripper across time!!! Looks great on Blu-ray.

      First time on Blu-ray, made in 1979 but still holds up. If you like time travel, HG Wells, and Jack the ripper this is a must see movie for you.

      This one of my favorite's while growing up. What sold me with this movie is watching H.G. Wells adjusting to the times of the modern day's of the 20th century.
