Writer/director Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, Happy Death Day 2U, Freaky) is set to produce his next horror/genre project. ‘Time Cut‘ is described as “Back to the Future meets Scream.” That’s all we know about this one for now, as plot details are under wraps.
This week we explore the much loved and discussed sci-fi sub-genre of time travel.

Although this device is often used it is rarely mastered; as attested to by hundreds of posts on blogs and IMDB ‘goofs’ pages. The true time travel fan will not be fooled if the time travel concept is ill thought out or if there are obvious problems with the time-line. Similarly, the best examples of this genre will explore the consequences; both positive and negative, of travelling through time; pushing them almost to the extremes whilst at the same time avoiding convenient plot devices.
