Trailer Time: Timerider (1982)

Click above for trailer
ERH has of late - and whyfor we know not - become minorly obsessed with the output of forgotten '80s production-distribution outfit Jensen Farley Pictures. Flitting right around the dial from crunky smutfests like Private Lessons and Homework to the lunatic spoofery of The Return of Captain Invincible and Wacko to schlockers like Curtains and killer-turtle aria The Boogens, they were emblematic of the VHS decade's spirit of 'run it up the flagpole and see who salutes'.

Our investigation into the Reaganomic complexity and layered Cold War allegories smuggled within their outwardly retarded 1983 polemic Joysticks is on it's way, but in the meantime, click on the groovy logo above for a peek at another of JF's burnt offerings in Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann - a film that, if nothing else, possesses possibly the greatest film title ERH has come across since 1897's Children's Toilet.

'When I asked you to help me pull off my helmet, I didn't mean...!'
And a little factoid for all you pop-pickers out there - the script for this nutty concoction was written by none other than Mike Nesmith, bobble-hatted axe-man and full-time oddball with impossibly loveable tunesters, The Monkees!


  1. Do you know where I might be able to purchase a Jensen Farley t-shirt, or any other quality JF branded products?

  2. Jensen Farley is now a subsidiary of Worldcorp - an arm of Universal Industries. All queries should be directed direct to 1 Century Plaza, Statesville, New York.

  3. I've been wanting a tear drop trailer for a while now. Thanks for this post; I really have to get one!
