Storyline

A group of protesters who call themselves "mutants" have taken over the inner city streets of a large city. They dress weird to try and show the effects of toxic poisoning. One of the mutants, Splatter, has really been affected. A group of fraternity boys decide to go into the mutant territory and kidnap one of the mutants as a prank. They inadvertently get framed for the murder of the mutant leader and are hunted through the abandoned buildings and dark streets by a crazed Splatter and his gang.

Has quotable dialogue, but I didn't remember any lines
5 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, this is an 80's movie. Not because it was made in the 80's, it could have been made in the 70's. If it was the same movie, it would be an 80's movie because of the fashion and musical styles, as well as the low-budget, junk-food film-making technique. If you are looking for some cheesy (and at times gory) fun, and that iconic 80's style, this movie is a suitable trip. It's one part frat-boy-hijinks sex comedy (like Porky's?), and one part futuristic glam-punk post-apocalyptic survival movie (like Mad Max?).

The plot is a total lift from the Warriors, a bunch of horny frat boys go to a bad section of town to kidnapped a glam-punk anti-nuclear weapons protester, and end up having to run for their lives when a not-so-nice glam-punk anti-nuclear weapons protester murders a good glam-punk anti-nuclear weapons protester and blames it on them. Will the frat boys learn what it is to be a glam-punk anti-nuclear weapons protester, and discover that there is more to life than being horny and in a fraternity? Like brotherhood? I will be the minority to say that this movie ended up a delightful treat despite it's hokey Giger cover (who is a fine artist, but I don't dig him that much) Recently released on DVD by Subversive Cinema, it comes with a mini poster, has an interview with one of the actors, and an audio-commentary. The picture and sound quality are pristine, and I assume added to my appreciation of the movie. I can understand seeing this on VHS and dismissing it as worthless junk, instead of enjoyable trash! PS, yes there is some topless nudity.
