Deja Vu All Over Again! continues at Trailers from Hell, with TV writer Alan Spencer introducing "Time After Time," Nicholas Meyer’s wonderfully inventive sci-fi pastiche about a time-traveling H.G. Wells and his search for Jack the Ripper in present-day San Francisco. A buoyant fantasy, nerve-wracking suspense film and one of the best romances of its decade. Malcolm McDowell, as far removed from Alex the Droog as you can get, plays the sweet-natured Wells and Mary Steenburgen is his beautiful, spacey soul-mate. With David Warner (terrifying) as the Ripper. George Pal would surely have approved. A movie that really does have something for everyone.
