2035 Forbidden Dimensions (2013)

After another hot day here in Pennsylvania, it was time to chill and catch up on the blog. It was an interesting day though, as I was able to spend the afternoon on the set of Gore Orphanage with writer / director Cody Knotts. While there I saw some cool scenes being shot and talked about scripting, dialog and the process to bring everything together. Thanks Cody! Now onto the review for the 2013 Sci-Fi flick 2035 Forbidden Dimensions.

Plot/ Jack Slade is a time traveler transported to the year 2035 to stop a mad scientist from turning the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

As usual, I had no idea what to expect when I started this one, and after watching it, I am still a bit confused about what I saw. This movie is extremely incoherent and somewhat of a challenge to follow. Of course, some of that is to be expected with the low budget and some relatively unknowns. The performances were uneven, the storyline while interesting left a ton of gaps, and the effects were hit or miss. I definitely got the feeling that there were a lot of homages to films thrown in, and while some of it worked, things may have went better if the movie was not cluttered with that. In the end, there are a few entertaining moments, but not enough to draw people in. If you LOVE Sci-Fi post apocalyptic stories, you may find this one interesting: if not, maybe you should stay clear.
