The Mutations

Film, Horror

Time Out says

Tired sci-fi horror in which students live in Prince of Wales Drive and drive Jaguars, while their professor (Pleasence) uses human beings, procured for him by a grotesquely deformed Tom Baker, to further his experiments in plant-animal mutations. Shades of Tod Browning's Freaks as the results get hived off into Michael Dunn's sideshow. The moral stretches no further than don't carve up your own students: two in a week and everything starts to go wrong, including the plot. Scott Antony ends up a cross between a lizard and a Venus Flytrap; Julie Ege has a fair bash at acting, gives up in face of all the silliness, and takes off her clothes instead.
