In Mega Time Squad, petty crooks get more than what’s coming to them when they rob an antique store and inadvertently acquire a cured bracelet. It gives its wearer the ability to time travel, but there’s a catch: If you meet yourself while time traveling, a “demon” will emerge. What follows is a mix of doppelgänger horror and madcap hilarity.
In addition to the trailer and synopsis below, Dread Central is pleased to present the exclusive clip at the top of the article. Look for Mega Time Squad in select theaters and VOD platforms beginning today (February 15th) via Dark Sky Films.
A low-level criminal steals an ancient Chinese time-travel device, but he may not survive the demonic consequences of tampering with time. Mega Time Squad is a wildly entertaining time travel/sci-fi comedy out of New Zealand. A fan favorite on the festival circuit, the film stars Jonny Brugh (What We Do In The Shadows) and was praised by Variety as “fast-paced, determinedly silly, with sharp slangy dialogue,” the film blasted out of the gate at this year’s Fantasia and is destined to become a cult favorite.
Mega Time Squad is written and directed by Tim van Dammen; in addition to Brugh, the film stars Morgan Albrecht, Yoson An, and Jaya Beach-Robertson.
