Storyline

With the medical breakthrough of a metal-based synthetic skin called "bio-ferron" the prospect for pioneering surgeries for burn victims and cancer patients seems set to occur but for the warped head scientist in charge...it's a opportunist chance to reactivate a long forgotten classified project...that has been left frozen in a set of cryogenic chambers deep beneath the bowels of government laboratory. Convincing the other in the research team to start work on putting this living 'metal' skin on corpses, he now has the perfect test patients waiting on ice for them to work on. But there was a reason three of these stiffs in particular where left to chill. Due to an experiment gone bad these three only look human on the outside and none of them are as dead as everyone believes they are. Written by suspicous

After Miller arrives at the lab Dr. Carlo refers to him as Colonel while discussing his sudden take over of operational authority of her project with Hammond (who holds the rank of Brigadier General). Military hierarchy would never allow a Colonel to take operational authority away from a higher ranking officer like Hammond. See more »

Double Creature Feature: Humanoid Cat-Beasts & Synthezoid Werewolves (part 2)
23 February 2010 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

MUTATOR aka TIME OF THE BEAST (1989) & PROJECT: METALBEAST aka METALBEAST (1995).

Two *very* similar B-movies. A dubious choice for this double feature, perhaps. But I know I'm most definitely not the only one around here who would voluntarily watch rubbish like...

-----

For some reason, I always recalled some scenes from "Mutator" being from "Metalbeast". Both films are not worth this kind of confusion. Nevertheless, "Metalbeast" is *slightly* better (even if they're practically the same movie, with people just running around in a facility with some beast after them). A little bit more money was spent on the creature design, including make-up sfx for various stages of the transformation and animatronics in the head-piece of the final creature costume. The real werewolves from the opening scenes, seem styled after the ones from Joe Dante's "The Howling". To my knowledge, "Metalbeast" is the only movie ever to feature an, ehrr... mutant werewolf synthetically enhanced with metal skin, extendible / retractable steel claws and red-glowing eyes.

Honestly, I like this movie.
