Trailer Tuesday: Trancers (1985)

Oh we have a B-Movie classic trailer for your viewing pleasure today, none of than Charles Band’s directed Sci-Fi masterpiece, Trancers. Starring the incredible character actor, Tim Thomerson as Jack Deth and a very young Helen Hunt as Leena. This movie beget five direct to video sequels, Trancers II, Trancers III, Trancers 4: Jack of Swords, Trancers 5: Sudden Deth, and finally Trancers 6.

Trancers was popular enough in the 90’s to have a three-issue limited series by Eternity Comics as well a set of collectible cards, these cards were sent to the video stores that ordered so many copies of the new Full Moon Entertainment movies. I was working at the video store at the time of Trancers II release, and yes all of the Full Moon films were low budget but for the most part they were also highly entertaining. It kind of filled the niche that the Sci-Fi (I’m sorry I can’t call it Sy-Fy) channel does now.
