Movie Info

The "history is inviolate" theory so chillingly elucidated in Ray Bradbury's The Sound of Thunder is recycled for the made-for-TV Timestalkers. William Devane plays a genially eccentric professor who teams with time traveller Lauren Hutton to prevent the course of history from being disastrously altered. In a manner slightly reminiscent of the 1984 movie hit The Terminator, Devane and Hutton must deal with Klaus Kinski, a mad scientist from the 26th century, who plans to hopscotch through time, spreading death and destruction wherever he goes. The odyssey takes the main characters to all manner of locales, including the Old West. Veteran actor Forrest Tucker made his final screen appearance in Timestalkers, which originally aired March 10, 1987.

Audience Reviews for Timestalkers (Time Stalkers)

Made for TV. 80's style western based Sci-fi. Flashbacks of moments in time that led to artifacts at an auction and time travelers. Not box office but good for TV. Predictable ending.

If you made a Lifetime movie that was part western and part time travel scifi, that would be cool. This was not. It did have a young Uncle Phil though. 2011 movies: 19

Any film with both Klaus Kinski AND John Ratzenberger has got to at least be watchable. HOWEVER, throw some time travel in there and (for me at least) it's unmissable. That said, this film is pretty cheesy and it loses steam after a while simply because the time travel gimmick is fairly simple and at just under 100 minutes, the flick is a solid 30 minutes longer than it needs to be. Still, it's silly fun, especially for seeing Ratzenberger in a live-action role.
