Horrorfest 2019 Presents: The Mutilator (1985, Buddy Cooper)


I kind of like this title better. Also catchy theme song.

The Mutilator aka Fall Break begins as a goofy fun movie that quickly becomes a nasty and gory slasher film. Oh and the main character’s dad goes crazy and starts a murder spree. This is one of those horror movies where people end up being picked off one by one in violent fashion. The characters in this movie aren’t half bad, yet one watches these for the kills. The kills are pretty good in terms of brutal entertainment.

I wonder if maybe the Reagan years caused so many slasher movies to exist. Perhaps the era was just right for those kinds of movies. Maybe people wanted really violent entertainment. I guess you can say that for most decades, really. At this stage I have seen way too many of them, and I have enjoyed way too many of them so I wonder if there is something wrong with me. Probably. Also this is a good fall movie and Fall Break is really a much better title.
