Tree House Time Machine: short scifi movie (film in full).
In a world where time travel is as easy as riding a bike (if that bike was powered by lightning), one brave 12-year-old boy is determined to change the past and bring his mother back to life. But as the saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility” and in the case of Tree House Time Machine, it also comes with some uninvited guests.
Charlie and his friends Puck and Vincent thought they had sworn off time travel after a particularly disastrous trip, but when a storm hits their small town, Charlie can’t resist the temptation to try again. Unfortunately for them, Puck’s big mouth has attracted the attention of Maggie and her meathead brother Bruiser, who crash the time-traveling party.
Meanwhile, Charlie’s father Jason is frantically searching for his missing son when he notices the tree house explode with electromagnetic energy. But as he races to save the kids, he also spots a hooded figure lurking in the nearby forest. It seems like time travel isn’t the only danger these kids are facing.
Tree House Time Machine may be a short proof of concept film, but it packs a punch with its 90s nostalgia and “Goonies meets Back to the Future” vibe. With plenty of heart and laughs, this dramedy is sure to entertain kids of all ages (and maybe even some adults who never quite grew up). So gather your friends, hop on your time-traveling bike, and join the adventure of a lifetime. Just don’t forget to watch out for T-rexes.
