Mutilator, The
(1983)
Reviewed by Justin Kosch
Rating: 6.5 Beans

fter the review of The Nail Gun Massacre(I am sorry. I forgot your name.), I decided to review a bad horror movie(again). This one was recommended to me by my friend(not the one who recommended Wishmaster), and it was actually a so-bad-it's-good movie.
The plot is simple. A boy decides to clean his dad's guns for his dad's birthday. He accidentally shoots and kills his mom in the process. When his dad comes home, he goes psycho. He drags the body into the gun room, puts the sign that his son wrote for the guns on the mom, and starts giving her wine(Which is both funny and messed up.).
A few years later, the boy is grown up, has a girlfriend, and goes to college. He has to go down to his summer house and get it ready for winter(turn off the water, clean it up, etc.). Of course, he decides to take his friends, too. Little do they know, the boy's dad is hiding in the garage-waiting to kill whoever goes there.
That's pretty much it. Problem is, I saw the R-rated version. My friend saw the unrated version. The difference? The R-rated version darkened the death scenes so badly you couldn't see anything. The unrated version shows the death scenes as they were supposed to be-blood, guts, and all.
Of course, they have this song playing through the beginning and end credits called "Fall Break"-the film's alternate title. It's highly addictive. I've only heard it 2 times, and I still remember how it goes. The song, as well as a lot of the scenes, make you think that you rented a teen comedy instead of a horror film. That isn't bad, just that it kind of steers you the wrong way at times.
Hmm.....Did I rent a spoof of the horror and teen genres and not even know it? Who knows?
I've heard that there was a sequel to this film that was a direct to video release. If I am correct, it's a very obscure title called "The Mutilated" about the father's revenge. If I saw it, I'd probably rent it. Then again, I might not. The Mutilator is bad enough as it is.
Rent it.....If you've seen everything else in the horror section.


note: I gave the film such a good rating because it's a so-bad-it's-good film. Rent it for fun.
