Full Moon pictures are best known on TMtV for their Subspecies series of films (and spin offs). But as well as those there is the long running Trancers series (actually the first Trancers film was made by Charles Band via Empire Pictures, and the series later became part of Band's Full Moon stable).
Trancers is a sci-fi noir series… actually it is cheesy B movie fair and the first couple of films, featuring future cop (and Trancer hunter) Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson, Near Dark, Live Evil & Wicked Lake), were cheesy good fun with a time travel aspect. The Trancers themselves are mind controlled zombie-like creatures. The third film nearly killed me off, to be honest, but this fourth film saw a change in pattern and I owe a thank you to Leila who told me about films 4 and 5.

It isn’t great, if we are going to be honest, and it is as cheesy as the most pungent Camembert but it is good fun. The edition I watched for review was in a set of the first five films. 4 out of 10.
