Not satisfied with the pace of natural selection in driving evolution, Noller wants to push things further by creating his own genetically engineered creations.

How on earth have I never seen this film before? I watched it tonight 'cause there was nothing else on Cable (again) - lucky me!
It started with some time-lapse film of plant-life and looked like a programme from the Open University - but then the soundtrack signalled something strange was happening...
"Mutations" owes a lot to Tod Browning's "Freaks" but offers loads more: some nice 70's nudity; plants that eat live rabbits (why not pet food?); dialogue that mentions "cloning dinosaurs"; a soundtrack that judders from spaced-out, slowed-down, phased bass to free form jazz. This is a minestrone of madness with some nice inconsitencies in the plot. Great!
Tom Baker was obviously heavily influenced by his role in this film and took most of the wardrobe with him for Dr Who!
