The science part that sets this pic into motion is actually pretty cool and well thought but the execution is lame, with cardboard sets that are horrible to look at and it just drags forever and ever, never really going anywhere or giving any decent payoff in the end. This what b-movies in the 60s looked like.

There's some interesting stuff going on, but the execution is lacking and the characters get pretty bland. The cheap sets are fun to look at and the futuristic concepts are kind of neat, though the film isn't the most memorable time-traveling tale out there.

An air force pilot is testing an experimental aircraft when he loses contact with the airbase. Upon returning to the ground he comes to realize he has traveled forward in time many decades via a wormhole. Others from the past exist in this dystopian future as they have accidentally traveled via separate wormholes. The humans all live underground, safe from the marauding mutants roaming the earth. Very much a B-movie in acting, direction, sets, and script. An interesting concept which could have been done much better.

Doesn't hold up very well, but creative for its time.

Classic Sci fi film from the 1960s, set in the future of 2000 plus. Basically he gets up in his jet but gets caught in a time rift which sends him from the 60s into the future where the world has been ravaged by a virus, caused by nuclear dust that has damaged the ozone.
Leaving mutant humans on the surface and sterile humans in an underground city. There he meets 3 others scientists that have experienced similar, they plan a return back in time to prevent the damage happening, but when he returns it's not as it was.
Love the empty Airfield scene in the beginning,and the story is excellent,some shaky sets but on the whole a great retro 60s movie

Tiene su encanto, la verdad...

I thought it was a valiant effort for a low budget film. It had a better than average story and some sets and effects with a sense of style.

Dystopic future. . . and the government believes him? Ha! As if!

A pilot gets shot into the future in this little gem, finding the world has fallen apart, but a bunch of def-mutes live seemingly idyllic lives in a weird looking citadel. Still, what about the bald-cap wearing mutants? And what's with the vaguely foreign, scheming scientists sequestered in a lab upstairs? Things get even more complicated when a psychic hottie gets some wild ideas about our heroic pilot. And this movie reminds me once again how much I miss cheeky swimming scenes and crazy scene wipes. It has a surprisingly brutal finale, too.

Basically, it's like Buck Rogers filmed German Expressionist-style on a lunch money budget. Genius.

This is mainly of interest as an example of what Ulmer could accomplish in no time with bupkis. I read that he recycled pieces of a futuristic exhibition from the 1959 Texas State Fair in the sets. So, there's a fun element of surprise to some aspects of an otherwise threadbare and silly production.
