Film adaptation of the H. G. Wells novel of the same name follows a time traveler's voyage into a far-off dystopian future.

Remake of The Time Machine (1960). Directed by H. G.

Successful in inventing a machine and preventing his deceased lover's murder only to have her killed anyway by a horse and buggy, further experimentation with his machine inadvertently lands the intrepid voyager in the year 802,701, forcing Alexander to work with a holographic librarian first encountered in 2037 to guarantee his continued survival after he lands amidst a primitive future Earth charred by warring tribes of humans.
