12:01 PM (1990) Time Keeps On Slipping With Deja Vu & Time Loops

12-01pm-1990

Groundhog Day meets The Twilight Zone in this head scratching time bouncing, loop de loop, flashback mystery. Poor Myron Castleman, played by Kurtwood Smith, is stuck living the same 59 minute loop on his lunch break. It’s quite the conundrum for the guy, who appears at the same place at 12.01pm no matter what he does. Can he break the pattern and solve the mystery before it drives him quite mad?

This is an exceptional short film that races along throwing different changes in the story as our hero Myron desperately tries to break the pattern by altering events in the very short amount of time he has. Kurtwood Smith gives a stellar performance showing his emotional acting skills stuck in this nightmarish time loop paradox.

The film is directed by Jonathan Heap and is based upon a short story by mystery and Science fiction writer Richard A. Lupoff which was published in a 1973.

It was later made into a TV movie which dropped the “pm” and just called itself 12.01. This looks like it takes a very different approach to the story and does look pretty wack but if you fancy it then it is on Youtube. My advice is watch the short one first.

Here it is in full, well worth giving this sci-fi short movie a go.
