Audience Reviews for The Mutations


Freakmakers is a one of a kind flick. It's not that great but it's certainly unique to some extent. Taking a cautionary tale with sci-fi aesthetics, it's also not afraid to tackle cheesy b-monster flick later on with a certain noir vibe all in the mix. Yes, it's that weird with so much going on and also unintentionally funny at times. It has some gorgeous timelapse shots throughout, that work wonders to create a contrast once the shit hits the fan. You can tell by these little aspects that the director has the picture under control, even if those time lapse shots last almost 10mins (!!!) in the opening credits alone. Wouldn't hurt if it didn't take itself so serious but it works for the most part.

This is Old School Drive-Inn Friday Night Horror, so-so for Halloween, Not sure it would do much for anyone under 25. To slow. But now those born in the Sixties might work for ya.
