Synopsis


The Mutilator
This undistinguished horror film by Buddy Cooper focuses in some detail on the blood and gore surrounding the gradual massacre of a group of teens but does not endow the storyline with the same careful attention. The premise is that a father becomes homicidal a good decade after his son accidentally kills his mother while cleaning a gun -- and what happened during those 10+ years or why insanity comes as a rather delayed reaction are not explained. When the son (Matt Mitler) is away at college, he decides to bring along several friends to spend their fall break (the alternate title of this film) taking care of his father's condo at the seashore. Little does the son know that his deranged father is lying in wait to wreak vengeance for the long-ago death of his wife. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    mutilator is one of those 80's slasher films that came out and i saw it when it came out in the 80's on vhs and it is pretty good not scary but very bloody and gory and it has one of the most shocking gory scenes i have seen in a horror film but it is still good 80's horror film and the blu-ray is well worth owning because of all the extras and how good it looks and plus it is the uncut version if you are a horror buff than check it out because it is very good film too bad they never did a sequel to this classic horror film

    A "good natured" Lost Slasher

    This movie is full of 80s Slasher tropes, and the characters just seem like people you'd enjoy hanging out with. This was supposedly the director's only film, and it was evidently a labor of love. It comes through in the film. There's definitely some gruesome deaths in it, but it is a fun little nugget in slasher film history. Arrow's packaging is top notch, with reversible sleeve, slipcover, and a booklet inside. You really get your money's worth.

    Arrow video is pretty much on the level of Criterion with their releases, only Arrow focuses more on horror and exploitation. This is a great release with lots of great extras.

    arrow video is a company that does high quality releases of low budget films. This release is on par with something the Criterion Collection would put out.

    This dvd has a great cover and the movie, although no Hitchcock, is fun to watch. I love watching old 1980's slasher flicks. Keep bringing them back.
