About the Film
When you can't trust your memory, how do you know what is real? The year is 2084, and a happily married man (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is confronted with the stunning realization that his life is a manufactured fantasy world, complete with a gorgeous but deadly wife (Sharon Stone) who suddenly wants to kill him. In an effort to discover his true identity, he flees into the mind-bending nightmarish reality of a Martian mining colony filled with rebellious mutants, an alluring and mysterious woman (Rachel Ticotin) - and ruled over by a terrorizing dictator (Ronny Cox), who can alter reality to suit his whims.

TOTAL RECALL was also adapted into a 1999 TV Series called "Total Recall 2070" (22 episodes).
