"It took me awhile to find the good version of this movie. That's the one from Elite Entertainment. The other versions have prints that aren't very good. So ask before you buy. You only want the Elite version. The Elite version has a good print and sound quality. This movie has some great acting from higher grade actors like Wings Hauser and Bo Hopkins. Sure it's a b movie but it's a very good b movie. Made by seasoned filmmakers; This flick features chemically infected people who are dying but need blood to stay alive at all. They are not zombies but they do behave like mindless hungry infected people. Like many movies of this type a small group of people try to survive in a isolated town against the menace at large. Cell phones were just not available much in the 80's due to their huge costs so this only leads to the feeling that you really had to go get help not call for it. In the world of b movies you have studio quality films and those made way outside of those with true technical experience. This is a upper b movie and was made and shown in theaters; not just in the now long gone midnight movie grindhouse circuit. Those are cool movies too but this was better made than most of them. It is a good watch for fans of 1980's horror movies or zombie like movies."
A good fun

"This film intends only to make you enjoy a good (althouhg not so original) zombie story.It is a good example of how to make a horror film without great special effects (only a white makeup for the zommbies...) using the classical topics of the genre, the guys in a small and strange city, the zombies, the extermination of the population and in the end you say to yourself, well,it was not bad, really...and for the price paid not bad at all..."
Better than I expected.

"You know what's worse than breaking down in a small town and getting your [...] kicked up and down the street by a bunch of knuckle dragging hillbillies? Breaking down in a small town getting your [...] kicked up and down the street by a bunch of knuckle dragging hillbillies and then getting attacked by radioactive zombies! Yep, ol Wings Hauser is having a bad day, but on the bright side he does hook up with a hot school teacher, so I guess it all equals out. I know that I'd be more than happy to fight a small town worth of radioactive zombies for a chance to score with some world class [...].
Joking aside this film is actually not too bad. The story, even though it's unoriginal, has just enough character development, action and mystery to keep you interested for the entire movie...and for a low budget horror movie that's saying something!
No blood or guts, just puss and sadly no nudity, but if you're into zombie flicks then MUTANT is worth checking out. It's not going to change your life or be as good as RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, but it's fun to watch with friends.
If y'all are looking for a drinking game:
* every time Wing's brother acts like a whiny [...].
* every time the main character's split up.
* every time the mic (or it's shadow) is visible...i know of at least twice.
* every time you want to [...] then main chick
* every time a zombie braces for a punch or just falls down after barely being hit"

"A complete waste of time. I thought I was getting "forbidden world a.k.a mutant" ,however, I was wrong. I still gave the movie a chance but a waste of time regardless."
