BY SWORD. BY PICK. BY AXE. BYE BYE.
Although the slasher movie was in decline by the mid-1980s, there were still some grisly delights to be had ... and they don t come much grislier than writer-director Buddy Cooper s sickening stalk-and-slash classic The Mutilator!When Ed gets a message from his father asking him to go and secure the household s beach apartment for the winter, it seems like the ideal excuse for an alcohol-fuelled few short days away with his buddies. His dad has forgiven him for inadvertently blowing mama away with a shotgun a number of years ago ... hasn t he? No earlier are the teens on the island than they find themselves stalked by a figure with an axe (and a hook, and an onboard motor) to grind ...
Originally entitled Fall Break (watch out for the incongruous theme song of the exact same name!), The Mutilator has made a credibility amongst horror fans as one of the holy grails of 80s splatter mayhem due to its extremely innovative (and not to state, decidedly gruesome) eliminate sequences, thanks to FX wizard Mark Shostrom (Videodrome, Evil Dead II). Making its long-awaited bow in High-Definition, The Mutilator has returned to terrorise an entire brand-new generation of horror fans!
