Trancers II is a 1991 American direct-to-video science fiction action film directed by Charles Band. It is a sequel to Trancers and it's set six years after the events of the first.


Los Angeles, 1991. Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson) has gotten used to life with his wife Lena (Helen Hunt) in the six years since they killed Whistler. Hap Ashby (Biff Manard) has made a fortune investing and has moved from the streets to a palatial estate, sharing it with Jack and Lena. But life is about to get difficult for Jack. Whistler's brother, E.D. Wardo (Richard Lynch), has gone back in time and created a "trancer farm" under the guise of an environmental organization. GreenWorld strives to 'clean up the world', but they are kidnapping the homeless and mental patients to enslave in a trancer army. Once again, Hap is under attack, useful to Wardo as the ancestor of future Angel City Council Member Ashe. Jack's ready to singe some trancers in the name of the law, but he isn't expecting his dead wife, Alice (Megan Ward) to show up—and neither is Lena.

Alice has been saved from death by the City Council and send back to 1991 to help Jack stop Wardo. The tension mounts as Lena becomes fearful of losing Jack to his future wife, Hap slips back to the bottle to deal with the stress, and Jack realizes that when Alice returns to the future, she'll die again. Somehow, Jack must find a way to save more than just the future.



Trancers II was first released on VHS, it has since then been released on DVD through the Trancers box-set or as a single DVD in Europe.
