Competently made but ultimately forgettable horror movie.

Just another below average zombie flick trying to come to life around a toxic wastes plot line.

a cross-bred horror film that is moderately successful in mixing some of the most overworked genres of the '70s and '80s

Audience Reviews for Mutant

Two brothers are stranded in a stereotypical redneck town struck by an outbreak of toxic waste mutations. Stupid, clichéd script renders the relatively high production values meaningless.

A little known and quite underrated zombie/infection movie. It builds up quite slowly which helped develop up the characters with Wings Hauser and Bo Hopkins being very watchable. As the film moves on it develops an eerie atmosphere and some genuinely creepy moments. Has a similar feel to Arachnaphobia but without the spiders. This was remade in 1988 as "Nightmare at Noon" but I didn't find this one bad at all. Give it a look.

A fun 80s style zombie flick. Slow to start, but the zombie outbreak is worth the wait.
