Remember Sliders, the show where Jerry O’Connell and pals would go to a new parallel Earth each week, and every major cast member ultimately got replaced? If I didn’t know better, I’d think the trailer for the new movie Parallels was a gritty fan film version by Adi Shankar, who gave us that violent Power Rangers spoof a couple of days ago.
In fact, this is more intriguing – a low-budget sci-fi movie that centers around a building which exists at the nexus of every possible parallel Earth. It – the film, not the building – is going to be available on Netflix, Amazon and other VOD services starting Sunday.
Too bad there’s no John Rhys-Davies type, but I’ll make do.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
