Last day. Capricorn 15's. Year of the city - 2274. Carousel begins.


In light of Kevin Levine, creator of ‘Bioshock’, writing the script to the much talked about ‘Logan’s Run’ remake, I thought this would be a perfect time to talk about the original movie for Throwback Thursday, ScienceFiction.com’s ongoing column dedicated to the great sci-fi of the past.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw ‘Logan’s Run’, though sadly it was because I didn’t want to see it. After all, who wants to see an old sci-fi from 1976 when we have the special effects of ‘Avatar‘?

The answer I had was unequivocally “not me!”. Of course, I was wrong. So wrong that even now I’m a little embarrassed that I was so against seeing it. When I say that ‘Logan’s Run’ is really, and truly great sci-fi, I want you to believe me when I say it.

Based off a fantastic and fast-paced book of the same name, ‘Logan’s Run’ takes place in a society where people only live until the age of 30. The society is sorted by colors that indicate how close you are to your death, and everyone has a stone implanted in their hand called a “Life Clock”. When your hand starts to blink red, it means it’s your last day and you go to the Carousel to be “renewed”, which is supposed to reincarnate you, though really this idea was more of an opiate for the masses than the actual truth.
