Apparently because of poor box-office results, this film was the last to be released by Film Ventures International (FVI). Edward L. Montoro, president of FVI, disappeared shortly afterward, taking $1,000,000 from the company's coffers with him. Nothing has been heard from him since. See more »

The cover box called this movie 'Mutant' so I knew it wasn't going to be about flower arrangement (good) and it starred Wings Hauser (could be good but then again he could overact mightily) and it was very cheap might be awful) but as it was a wet tuesday I bought it. Much better than I expected.
Wings was restrained, Bo Hopkins good as usual and the other cast members fine. The two female leads were particularly good. They all took part in your usual chemicals contaminates town turning folks into murderous zombie type things sort of plot but the photography was atmospheric, the music creepy or emotional as appropriate, the make up scary and it all built up slowly but surely to a suspenseful ending.
The ordinariness of the setting makes it more frightening. It could be happening in the next town to you!
