Trailer for Fox Digital’s Parallels Looks Like a Fan-Made “Gritty Reboot” of Sliders


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.
