President of Film Ventures International Edward L. Montoro was responsible for most of the changes in the script after the rewrite process. Writer John C. Kruize admits some of the changes were good or acceptable (changing the germ warfare premises to toxic waste poisoning) but most weren't. During this process the title was changed to "Night Shadows", which the writers thought was weak. See more »

Night Shadows AKA MUTANT, is a very overlooked horror movie. I remember Wings Hauser in various films and TV shows in the 80's at the time. He does well with the characters he played. In this film, I give him a lot of credit. In "Night Shadows" AKA "MUTANT", plays Josh, he and his brother go out in a Southern town after being run off the road by some local ruffians. Josh and Mike(Lee Montgomery) go into town. They enter the bar where the rowdies hang out. The sheriff(Bo Hopkins) helps the out of towner's to a Inn. They spend the night, but when daylight hits, Mike goes missing. Earlier, Mike found a man dead near the fence. But when it was the town drunk, the sheriff picked up a sample which later became hot to the touch. When Josh went to the gas station, it was closed. He goes to the bar which he meets Holly(Jody Medford). She works at the bar and is a teacher. She informs that the owner of the station is sick. Not only that, it appears the whole town is sick as well. When he uncle who work at the bar got sick, he developed a light sensitivity. When the sun goes down, strange beings roam the streets. It's the towns folks! When they got sick, they become mutant zombies. The cause of the insanity is the plant built by some of the locals dumping chemicals, causing the whole town to be sick and zombified. Sadly, the brother and the kid from school were the unlucky ones. So Josh, Holly, and the sheriff fend off the undead locals until the state law enforcement arrived. It was a very interesting movie. I liked it well. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
