Bluray Review: The Mutilator

21 March 2016 9:40 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Ah, The Mutilator, the memories of my teenage years  you bring back. I remember the exact moment I gazed upon your VHS box in the summer of 1987 at El Chaparral Supermarket and held you in my arms for the very first time. Your artwork sent chills down my spine and I knew right then and there at thirteen years old that I would never have the cojones to insert you into my Vcr and enjoy you the way I wanted to. I wouldn’t muster the courage to view you until four years later in 1991 when my best friend’s brother brought it home from the video rental department of the supermarket he managed. I felt guilty for doing so since my parents forbade slasher films in our house but there was that wonderful curiosity that I would carry in me since the first time I saw that box (and »

Blu-ray Review – The Mutilator (1984)

19 February 2016 1:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Mutilator, 1984.

Written and directed by Buddy Cooper.

Starring Matt Mitler, Ruth Martinez, Bill Hitchcock, Connie Rogers, Frances Raines, Morey Lampley and Jack Chatham.


A group of teenagers head off to a beach condo for the winter for a few days of alcohol fueled partying. However, before too much fun is had, they find themselves stalked by an axe and hook wielding mystery figure…

By sword, by pick, by axe, bye bye. It’s a classic tag line that, much like the movie that it’s promoting, brings about a wry smile and lets you know the kind of movie that you’re in for. A holiday slasher from the mid-80’s is what it is, and as a movie very much in line with the more famous films that helped inspire it – Halloween and Friday the 13th primarily  plus a large dose of holiday camp shockers such as Sleepaway Camp and  Madman. »

‘The Mutilator’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

18 February 2016 11:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matt Mitler, Ruth Martinez, Bill Hitchcock, Connie Rogers, Frances Raines, Morey Lampley, Jack Chatham, Ben Moore, Trace Cooper, Pamela Weddle Cooper | Written and Directed by Buddy Cooper

If you are a fan of slasher films, the beauty is that there are plenty to see. Not just the recent ones, but a vast history of films that span decades, and some many of us haven’t had the chance to see yet. One of those for me was The Mutilator, which has recently had the Arrow Video Blu-ray treatment…

Years after accidentally killing his mother while cleaning his father’s guns, Ed Jr. (Matt Miller) and his friends take a vacation at his father’s beach house. With signs that Big Ed (Jack Chatham) has been around they give it little though, but at the teenagers start to disappear, the teenagers soon work out that everything is not all as it seems. »
