Editorial Reviews

Like David Cronenberg s The Fly, co-writer and director David Morley s fright flick Mutants turns the horror genre on its head and makes it personal. It s one thing to kill a zombie. But what if the zombie was someone you loved? ER doctor Sonia (Helene de Fougerolles) and her boyfriend Marco (Francis Renaud) take refuge in an abandoned base when a pandemic has turned almost everyone in the world into a flesh-eating monster. But one of the creatures infects Marco and soon Sonia is fighting off zombies, dealing with her own pregnancy and desperately hoping for a cure as Marco literally disintegrates before her eyes. Finally, Sonia faces the truth: the one man worth fighting for has become the one man she must fight against to survive.

I popped it in the DVD player and it doesn't even work.

This movie starts out great and ends just as well, kept me interested the entire time, wonderful acting and effects are top notch.
Jeremiah Harrington
In between, it drags on a little, but not enough to ruin things.

A pleasant surprise, the intimate French film "Mutants" tackles the familiar zombie genre and infuses it with real human drama. If you come into the film anticipating an all-out creature feature assault, then the slow build tension--most of which arises from man-to-man interactions--might be a little bit of a let down. However, for those that like a little bit of substance with their carnage, there is much to recommend this tense examination of survival. Set in a wintry and isolated environment, "Mutants" makes the most from its claustrophobic setting. Add some good effects, absolutely terrific performances, and an intriguing moral dilemma and this movie far exceeded my expectations. Though not completely original, this still works as a grown-up horror story that balances a thoughtful narrative with gory mayhem.

After a virus transforms much of the population into flesh eating monsters, a young couple (who happen to be paramedics) are on the run to rumored safety at a government installation. Fighting threats both human and grotesque, they hole up in an abandoned building when their fuel supply dwindles. Completely alone, they struggle to cope realizing that the guy has been bitten and is in the first stages of infection. Desperate for help, they soon discover a new terror--and it's not from monsters! Another band of survivors find our couple and it starts to become less certain where the greatest danger lies. As the tension escalates, our hero continues his metamorphosis and soon there is an all out battle for survival. The action sequences are executed with precision, and the payoff is more affecting due to actual character development within the love story.

France rules in the realm of horror! This film somehow hasn't received much attention.

Another Movie recently watched on Netflix in HD. This time French with English subtitles and a pretty good zombie type movie. I won't give away the whole plot but here are some general thoughts...
Much of the theme is about seeing a loved one turn into something unrecognizable.
Stars Sonia (Helene de Fougerolles) who was in The Beach (at least that's where I recognized her from) and Marcus (Francis Renaud).
Although technically these aren't the undead, but the infected. It still has that "zombie-like" feel to it. They're infected, they bite you, you become infected...
Good makeup work for the monsters. Everything looked good in HD, although being filmed in Winter in Europe, everything has kind of a gray and moody tone to it. Even blood was very dark colored and realistic looking.
The acting is top notch..just in French. Far better than B movie grade.

* Die Hard zombie fans will enjoy this as a rental.
Others not really into the genre will probably want to avoid.

I'm always hungry for a bargain but recent low-price purchases of horror DVDs have left me with little but a sense of a loss of time and money. With this in my mind, I didn't expect much when I picked up Mutants, a French post-apocalyptic horror from writer and director David Morlet.

Given that I only paid £2 for this, the fact that the cover looks like a rip-off of The Crazies artwork and the synopsis sounds a bit generic, I was NOT expecting great things from Mutants.
Half-heartedly settling down to watch this, my attention was immediately grabbed by the film as it kicks off with no pre-amble whatsoever. The violence is brutal and gory; and this is a theme that continues throughout the film.
Although this is a blood-soaked offering, it would be unfair to categorise Mutants as simply action-horror. After the opening stanza, this develops very much into a character-driven suspenseful horror and focuses on the plight of Sonia and Marco as outlined in the synopsis and their struggle to cope with Marco's deteriorating condition.

Shot mainly out of the studio in a bleak winter setting and utilising some kind of creepy abandoned hospital, Mutants enhances the sense of isolation experienced by the main characters as they come to terms with their situation and fight for survival.
The special effects cannot be criticised and the make up for the creatures is certainly above the standard you might come to expect from many zombie/ infected sub-genre. The production values on this project have either been high or wisely spent.
The final chapter of the film sees the return to the pace of the start and the brutal violence and action of the opening sequence and is all done very well.

I knew the French were on to something good in the Horror genre after watching the excellent High Tension served up by Alexandre Aja. I have been a horror buff for more years than I care to remember,and especially fond of the zombie/undead/mutant post apocalyptic gems that have cropped up over the years. This film has a bit more in common with 28 Days/Weeks Later than any of the more traditional zombie fare,but the air of paranoia and claustrophobic chill does tend to remind one of Dawn of the Dead. It is a tale of two survivors,faced with an impossible situation in a world gone awry. The character development is great and the acting was superb,especially in the moments between the two lovers amidst knowing one of them faces certain doom whilst the other refuses to let go of her uncompromising sense of faith that everything will be ok when help arrives. The special effects and gore sequences were very realistic and much better than I had originally expected, and the action was doled out smartly and never over the top. This is perhaps a thinking mans zombie flick,as it offers a little more by way of plot to titillate the gray matter than just solely relying on blood and guts. It was pretty cool to view something that satisfied my hunger for good blood effects,while giving me good dialogue and visceral acting,not to mention lines that didn't seem to be filler or pedestrian. I'm not usually a fan of sub-titled flicks in any genre,but that was a minor concern given the overall quality of the film. Highly recommended for horror and sci-fi fans not just looking to be force fed gore for the sake of gore and inane,wooden acting.Check it out!
