Storyline

Professor Charles Conway is a mad scientist attempting to develop the proverbial fountain of youth by creating "the 17th gland". Ignoring all aspects of scientific ethics, his research subjects are people who have no family and are under the impression that the doctor can cure their depression. However, his research hasn't been successful and his subjects are turned into grotesque zombies. Some of Conway's patients begin to catch on to his scheme and intend to stop him. Written by Brian D. Switzer <bswitzer@uoguelph.ca>

Don't be fooled by the tagline
24 August 2000 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

The tagline has nothing to do with the movie!There were no mutants on a mission from hell! All they were was harmless freaks manufactured by an evil scientist (John Carradine). The movie wasn't even scary. Just sort of dull and old.
