A Very scary classic. Underatted. But a small-Fraud.
12 August 2000 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

NIGHT SHADOWS was infact a creepy little film it was kind of like that other film THE DARK. NIGHT SHADOWS (MUTANT) could be a long-awaited sequel to that film. Well unfornatly this is an Edward L. Montoro production in this case I had a feeling it was going to be a fraud he dose this with every film he makes and gets a law-suit filed againist him inculding GREAT WHITE (1980) BEYOND THE DOOR (1974) and THE DARK which was not pulled like his other movies. He also had a suit with William Girdler over DAY OF THE ANIMALS and GRIZZLY for profits. Well even though this movie was a Montoro production I still enjoyed it. It was okay. Especailly the mutants taking over the people of a small town and John Cardlos direction.

Montoro later in 1985 went to produce GRIZZLY II THE PREDATOR and released in 1986. His law-suits over the years was still effective aganist him he left the country in 1987 and was never seen again.
