XLrator Media’s Macabre label has acquired the Danielle Panabaker-starring time travel thriller Time Lapse for release this May.
A neat little tale of time and mind bending, Time Lapse “explores the possibilities of time travel through a machine that is capable of taking pictures 24 hours into the future. When three friends discover this mysterious machine in their neighbors apartment, they encounter a number of pressing questions, not least of which is the whereabouts of their neighbor. Realizing the potential impact of the machine, Finn (Matt OLeary), Jasper (George Finn), and Callie (Danielle Panabaker) attempt to cash in on their discovery. But, when a dangerous criminal learns their secret, the friends must set aside their differences and confront the paradox of a future that was once predetermined and entirely uncertain.”
The film is an intimate one, largely taking place in an apartment using its supernatural quality to both bring in the pulpy criminal quality, but of course interpersonal conflict. Though many indie sci-fi films get compared to the Twilight Zone in their scenarios, I’d say the final moments of the film certainly have a nice, Serling-esque punctuation.
Directed by Bradley King, Time Lapse is on VOD May 15th. You can see the film’s festival trailer, below.
