After the death of their wife/mother in a plane crash, Graham (Sean
Botha) and his daughter Laura (Polly Tregear) were grieving so much that
they decided to make cars as a means of transportation futile altogether
by developing a teleportation device - and they succeed, even if there are
a couple of glitches: For one whoever is to be teleported has to be stark
naked as the device can only teleport organic matter, and whoever is to be
teleported is to be killed at the exact time they materialize on the other
end - perfectly alive. So for the maiden voyage, Graham has to strangle
his naked daughter to death, which of course feels more than a little odd
to him - but it works just fine. But when they make a second test, Laura
sure is killed and dematerialized - but another naked woman (Jennifer
Leahey) appears on the other end ... and it turns out she's from another
world. After some confusion though they agree if he teleports her again,
things should fix themselves - only they don't, as Graham only gets yet
another naked woman (Sara Parker) in return, so he tries again and again,
dozens of times, and never gets the results he wants, his daughter.
Eventually, due to some miscalculation, he actually kills one of the women
(Carmen Silva) before the right time, and now is left with a dead body and
nobody to teleport in exchange for his daughter. But luck has it that a
charity worker who's the splitting image of the dead woman shows up at his
doorstep just then, so he quickly knocks her out, undresses her, and puts
her on the teleporter chair - and this time he gets Filispia (Eloise
O'Brian), an amazon from not just another planet but another dimension,
and she explains a few things but promises she can help him get Laura back
- but at what price?
Ok, the premise of this movie is a little
bit outrageous and needs quite a bit of suspension of disbelief - but once
you've mastered that and accepted the fact that it has been done on a low
budget, it's actually a pretty entertaining film, one that effortlessly
blends drama and comedy, horror and science fiction into a rather unique
story that despite of its dimensions-spanning scope works quite well on
very limited locations. And despite the many naked women in this film,
this aspect is handled very decently, avoiding all sleazy potholes. And of
course, a strong cast helps to properly bring this film to life.
good genre entertainment in fact.
