“…in the tradition of 12 MONKEYS and DONNIE DARKO…it may take a few repeat viewings – and even a few DIY charts on scrap paper – to begin to understand the deliberately convoluted narrative. Also check out the making-of extras and commentaries on the Artsploitation DVD release.” – ClevelandMovieBlog
“Dark humor with a nice mix of science fiction and thriller story telling….Time travel movies are always going to be a hit and even more so if they are done smartly like Counter Clockwise is.” – HorrorScreamsVideoVault
“Writer/director/producer/editor/cinematographer George Moise deserves a lot of credit for concocting a time-travel thriller which keeps upending expectations at every turn. Sure, Counter Clockwise eventually slips off the rails but for a good long while it keeps you intrigued with the saga of a scientist (Michael Kopelow) who sends himself six months into the future. Trouble arises when he discovers that his future self is wanted for murdering both his wife and sister. Even though it grows too complicated – and the ending turns unspeakably nasty – there’s enough invention here to impress even the most hardcore sci-fi fan. ” – Amy Longsdorf, TicketToEntertainment
