Idaho Transfer (1973)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Idaho Transfer (1973) A crew of young researchers escape into the future to avoid the shutdown of their project. They find that some type of 'eco-crisis' disaster has de-populated the area around their lab (in rural Idaho) and, by implication, the nation or maybe the world. Stranded in the barren future, in their travels they encounter an abandoned freight train possibly full of corpses (maybe, it isn't very clear). One of them travels further into the future and meets a family in a futuristic automobile, implying that that humankind has recovered from the disaster (or have they?)

More Movie Taglines:
  • The future is a great place to visit.....
  • In the Earth Year 2029 there are only twelve young people left. They should be trying to start a new civilization... instead they're trying to kill each other!
  • "Can the future be saved by the ideals of the past?"
Movie Quote(s):
  • Ronald: I don't think you have to leave anything behind. Just have a beautiful time like all the other junk litter in the universe, then say goodbye. I don't know what else to tell you. Perpetuation and all the crap that goes with it is a big hoax anyway.
  • Future Girl: Are you sure that was one of them? Future Woman: Of course it was. Future Girl: What happens when we run out? Future Woman: We just put another one in. We won't need another for quite aways. Future Girl: I didn't mean that. I meant what if we run out of all of them or we can't even find any? Future Man: They'll figure out another way for us. Future Woman: We can use something else. Future Girl: But what if that's too hard or expensive and what if they decide they can't change? We'll use each other then, won't we?
  • Karen Braden: Ronald, I have something to tell you. Ronald: Really?
  • Karen Braden: Karen. Is. Blank.
Movie Trivia:
  • Many sources, including the DVD box, report an "Anne Casper" in the film with no role. In fact, the role of Anne was played by Kim Casper. Similarly, the box and some sources credit production assistant Nancy Giebink with a role, though she is not credited for one.
  • The film was released theatrically in 1973 for only a limited time, as the distributor - Cinemation - went bankrupt during the first week the film was released. Only in 1988 did the film resurface on video, through MPI Home Video. Only this version has Peter Fonda's opening remarks about the environment. Subsequent DVD releases do not include this.
  • A long strip of red Dymo tape runs across the transfer control box. At one point late in the film, the camera gets close enough that part of it is legible. It says: "...LASSES,RINGS,WATCHES,BRACELETS, ETC USE MAT..." This apparently refers to the compartment box in the transfer station in which all metal objects must be placed.
  • In the film, the transfer sends people 56 years in the future. The date is conflictingly stated in external promotional materials as either 2029 or 2044, due to the long gap between the theatrical release (1973) and the home video release (1988).
