The Time Travelers 1964 (Size: 4.32 GB)
- THE TIME TRAVELERS 1964 - Director Ib Melchior
The Time Travelers comes from Ib Melchior, a director and screenwriter who, usually in association with Sidney Pink, had directed The Angry Red Planet (1959) and written other films such as Reptilicus (1962), Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962), Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964), Planet of the Vampires (1965) and Death Race 2000 (1975). Ib Melchior’s films sat between the terrible – Reptilicus – the routine – The Angry Red Planet – and those that suggested they could have been quite a bit more if they had a better budget – Journey to the Seventh Planet, Robinson Crusoe. The Time Travelers is perhaps the best of all Ib Melchior’s films.
Melchior creates a rather intriguing opening where the scientists succeed in opening up a portal by accident. It’s a scene where Melchior suggests a great deal of intriguing possibility with almost minimal effect – the camera just sits in the laboratory looking out through the portal at the bare desert terrain – cheaply but effectively represented by a projection on a wall, which the scientists never ever directly walk into – letting it loom with all sorts mystery as to what might lie there. Thereafter though, The Time Travelers falls into the pervading trend of time travel movies of the era – the likes of Captive Women (1952), World Without End (1955), Beyond the Time Barrier (1960), even The Time Machine (1960) – where the time machine has no more imaginative possibilities than simply serving as a type of rocketship to deliver the travelers into an exotic realm. Invariably in all of these the time machine serves to deposit the travelers into a post-holocaust future where they become engaged in a fight to defend the remnants of humanity against mutants. - Moria.
