The Mutilator Movie Review





The Mutilator is a 1985 horror movie directed by Buddy Cooper and starring Matt Mitler, Ruth Martinez and Jack Chatham.

The movie begins with a young child called Ed Jr. He is cleaning his dad's guns when he accidentally shoots his mother dead. His father returns and sees what his son has done. He is furious about it and he chases the son away. Cut to years later and Ed Jr(Mitler) is with his friends when his dad, Ed Sr(Chatham)calls him. He wants him to go to his condo at the beach and close it up for him. Ed. Jr isn't too sure about it, but his friends convince him to go there. What they don't know is that his dad is hiding in the garage waiting for them. He has gone insane and he is planning revenge on them.


Ed Jr, Mike, Linda,Ralph, Sue and Pam arrive at the condo. They settle in. Mike and Linda decide to go for a walk and they find a swimming pool. Someone is there and they drag Linda underwater. It's Ed Sr and he takes her off then he kills Mike too. The others are looking for them. They meet the beach patrol officer and tell him that they are looking for their friends. He goes on his way and ends up getting killed by Ed. Sr. The others think that Mike and Linda are having fun somewhere so they play games. Ralph decides to go and look for them eventually and he ends up dead. Pam gets Ed.Jr to look for Ralph.


Ed, Sue and Pam go looking for their friends. Sue wanders off and gets killed by the dad. Ed Jr and Pam find the bodies of their friends. They see Ed's dad coming for them. Ed fights his dad but he gets knocked out. Pam is left to battle him and wounds him. She gets a knife and stabs him in the chest.
Pam and Ed get into the car but it won't start. The dad gets back up and he attacks them again. Pam burns him with the cigarette lighter and he falls off the car. The cops show up. Pam uses the car to back the dad into a wall and kill him. He manages to chop on a cop's leg before he dies. The movie ends with Pam and Ed in hospital together. They are happy that it is all over.


This was a fun horror movie. It is one that I had heard about, but had never gotten a chance to see.
I liked it and I thought that it was entertaining. There are some great kills in it and the story is good.
I enjoyed watching this and if you like slashers, then this will be for you. I recommend this one. I am going to give it a 6/10.

Good review, Jigs. I heard of this but never saw it. Maybe I will check it out. I am always in the mood for an 80s slasher.
