The Timekeepers of Eternity peeked my interest when I heard it was a retelling of The Langoliers, but I wasn’t aware of what was going on with it until starting it. Aristotelis Maragkos was able to repurpose footage from the original adaptation of The Langoliers and make it even more unsettling that it was originally. I remember watching the original version over twenty years ago and being underwhelmed by it.
This version was able to do something wholly original and unnerving. Bronson Pinchot’s performance is completely transformed in this version. This Craig Toomy is the kind of antagonist that scares you with how quickly he shifts from calm to unhinged and back again. The art style and effects used for the movie not only add to his performance but to the entire movie.
The Timekeepers of Eternity repurposes a lackluster of a Stephen King adaptation from the 90s into a masterpiece. I want to know more about the process behind this movie. It makes me wonder what other adaptations could be improved by doing something like this. I give The Timekeepers of Eternity 9.5 paper crumples out of 10.
