Director: Tim van Dammen. With: Anton Tennet, Jonny Brugh, Milo Cawthorne, Josh McKenzie, Yoson An. New Zealand 2018. 81 mins.
EUROPEAN PREMIERE - A low-level criminal from the small town of Thames in New Zealand steals an ancient Chinese time-travel device that helps him pull off a heist and start a new life. But he may not survive the demonic consequences of tampering with time. Cheerfully vulgar, laugh-out-loud funny and showcasing brilliant visual effects (award-winning music video director van Dammen created the SFX for DEATHGASM), this parochial Kiwi sci-fi comedy mixes TIME CRIMES with MULTIPLICITY to engagingly explore the generic lexicon of the ace time travel thriller and timeless human themes of greed, courage and responsibility. Chill-out for epic laughs and side-splitting suspense.
