Enjoyable oddity that pits H.G. Wells against Jack The Ripper in modern day (well, 1979) San Francisco. A nice mix of sci-fi, thriller and romance.

Vastly overlooked and underrated time traveling movie with a fantastically understated concept, Time after Time is an irresistible guilty pleasure. Pitting H.G Wells against Jack The Ripper in modern day San Francisco is an unmitigated stroke of genius and the references to a society, which is more akin to a disturbed serial killer, are clever and well constructed. The actors all seem to be having fun with their characters and any silliness soon evaporates into a sweet, romantic and atmospheric story that is as unpretentious as it is entertaining. Currently Time after Time is unavailable on DVD in the UK, a serious miscarriage of justice.
