Trancers 6 Reviews
Jack Deth is back, but this time he’s in the body of his beautiful daughter. In the year 2022, Deth must leap into the body of the daughter he never knew he had in order to stop the evil Trancers from taking over the world. Jay Woelfel’s ambitious sequel does the Deth name proud, running around the Evil Dead rip-off the film series had become after part 3. This DVD features good sound and video as well as trailers for various Full Moon projects, deleted scenes/alternate shots and the original Trancers, which is a huge bonus in and of itself.
AN INCREDIBLY FUN MOVIE
You sometimes feel like you’re battling the Trancers right along with Jo/Jack. The cast was a good mix also. Each one brings a different and energetic performance to the film. Director Jay Woelfel has successfully kept the Trancers series alive and well. For Trancer fans and Horror Fans alike, this is a must see. Plenty of suspense, blood, gore, and ass kickin’!

WELL WORTH THE WAIT
I had been waiting a long time for this movie to come out, as I have long been a fan of Charles Band/Full Moon Pictures. When I saw it, I was amazed. Of the Trancers Films I've seen (I, III, and VI), I would say this one was the best. Even though we are in Part 6, the action still feels like it's fresh off the burner. Also, I was delighted to see that the plot had a bit of twist in it, of how the whole "Trancers" theme was a little different than in the others (I refuse to say anything else on the plot, as I don't want to spoil it). Great Movie!!! I Give it 10 out of 10
SHOWS THAT FULL MOON CAN STILL DO IT IF THEY TRY.
I've been a fan of Charles Band and Full Moon since the beginning. But, the films released by Full Moon over the last few years have fully disappointed me. I really can't stand the "Urban" dribble they've been dishing out.
To my surprise though, Trancers 6 reminds me of the good old Full Moon films before they started to go downhill. It's low budget of course, but the acting, plot, makeup, special effects are all excellent. I hope this may indeed be the beginning of a new age for Full Moon Pictures. But please, drop the lame rapper/urban films that couldn't scare a flea.
STRUCTURALLY, I FOUND THE STORY MORE FULFILLING THAN THE ORIGINAL…
TRANCERS 6 is a more well-rounded and cohesive story. Unlike so many other Full Moon outings, this one isn't so much concerned with the educated upper crust and their angst, but instead deals with the meek and the weak, who aren't shown as people to be pitied, just helped. In all the character's gruffness, and as much as he might hate the comparison, Jack Deth is the ultimate liberal not-for-profit humanitarian battling singular-minded governmental zombies who prosper on the easily manipulated through mass media. This is no clearer than in TRANCERS 6, where the Trancers use a rock, with no apparent intelligence or personality (like there is any other kind of rock), to send flashes of programming information through the eyes of the hopeless. I'm a republican, and even I'm not blind to the comparison to George Bush Jr. and his use of television to bestow reassurance upon an America who just wants to hear that everything is "okay" concerning their place in the world. Jay Woelfel's TRANCERS 6 is a worthy entry into the TRANCERS series that shows some potential for things to come, especially regarding new territory for a franchise that's grown tired with recent installments.
