“Timescape is the best time-travel movie you’ve never heard of.” – Deja Reviewer
“A heroic example of the kind of self-contained, mid-budget, original American action thriller that doesn’t get made any more. The last 20 minutes of A Perfect Getaway are fast, intense, extremely violent, and extremely satisfying.” – Adam Nayman, The Ringer
This December the Laser Blast Film Society salutes the cinema of David Twohy. Popularly recognized for his imagineering of the gleefully esoteric sci-fi adventures of Richard B. Riddick, Twohy is also one of Hollywood’s most skillful, yet woefully underrated thrillmeisters both on the page and behind the camera. Responsible for penning the pulp worlds of WARLOCK, CRITTERS 2: THE MAIN COURSE and the blockbuster adaptation of THE FUGITIVE, Twohy crafts precise momentum machines that spew crackerjack dialogue and pump elegant formal invention.
This holiday season take a trip and luxuriate within two of his most overlooked productions, his 1992 directorial debut TIMESCAPE (aka GRAND TOUR: DISASTER IN TIME) and his sublime meta-thriller A PERFECT GETAWAY, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The former stars Jeff Daniels and a pre-JURASSIC PARK Ariana Richards as a father and daughter investigating the temporal origins of their bed and breakfast’s enigmatic patrons, while the latter assembles Steve Zahn, Milla Jovovich, Kiele Sanchez, and Timothy Olyphant and strands them in the Hawaiian wilderness with a pre-THOR and frequently shirtless Chris Hemsworth and rumours of a couple of serial killers on the loose! FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY SEE TWO TIMES THE TWOHY!
