A Short Summary
The time traveler travels 800,000 years into the future; full of cannibals called Morlock. These clammy, ghostlike creatures who hate the daylight, are trying to trap the time traveler.
The Time Machine is not only a book, but it was adapted into a very popular movie. The book was expanded in many ways such as the comic book industry, two television series, and of course two movies.
The Time Machine movie was loosely adapted from the book. The movie was filmed in New York instead of London. The movie released in 2002 was very different from the version in the 1960's. The 2002 version includes new story lines and a romantic element. It also includes a new scenario that involved civilization being destroyed. It has a lot of new characters, such as an artificially intelligent hologram played by Orlando Jones and a new Morlork king played by Jeremy Irons.
