Just when you thought there was nowhere left to take Stephen King’s oeuvre, along comes THE TIMEKEEPERS OF ETERNITY. This wild wonder was born when animator Aristotelis Maragkos printed every frame of the damned 1995 ABC miniseries version of The Langoliers to black-and-white paper, then reshaped it into a cut-and-paste phantasmagoria. Maragkos mercifully shreds the original’s running time from three hours to one, but the Twilight Zone-esque story remains intact: ten strangers awaken on a red-eye flight to find that the rest of the passengers and crew have mysteriously vanished. The cast includes the great Dean Stockwell, a cameo from Stephen King himself, and a truly unforgettable Bronson Pinchot, whose unhinged, off-the-wall mannerisms would make Nicolas Cage blush — but the real star is Maragkos. Throughout, the animator rips, folds, crumples, and collages the paper image in ways that heighten and improve the original, creating a one-of-a-kind remix that easily transcends its source material.
