Keep Screaming

A horror podcast by two best friends, dissecting slasher movies... one by one.

The Mutilator

The Mutilator (1984)

Ryan Larson

This week we dissect 1984's The Mutilator, originally titled Fall Break. Written & directed by Buddy Cooper (his debut and ultimately only film) and starring a cast of... well real-life college students!

In our Pop Culture check-in we talk TV! Bee takes advantage of her maternity leave and catches up on The CW shows that are in their last season, iZombie & Jane the Virgin. She binge watched the first season of Roswell, New Mexico and give it a solid “A” review. She moves on to HBO and starts The Leftovers, continues to obsesses over Barry and watched the first episode of Game of Thrones. (Yes, she knows she is VERY late to the party on that one). Ryan checks in on horror classic The Changeling and offsets that with a lovable bear and finally watches Paddington.

Then we move onto The Mutilator! A cult classic now widely available thanks to Arrow Video and Shudder (we streamed on Shudder to watch it). We break down the very weird tonal shifts the movie seems to take, the college kids playing actors, and of course the insane kills and killer!
