Mutant (1984)
100 min.
Directed by John "Bud" Cardos.
With Wings Hauser, Bo Hopkins, Lee Montgomery, Jody Medford, Jennifer Warren, Cary Guffey.
Two brothers from the big city are on vacation, traveling through a rural community.

As if it's not bad enough that the locals are giving them a hard time, they discover a nearby chemical plant has been dumping toxic waste outside the town.

The contamination is turning people into zombies.

Before you say "not another living dead movie," you might want to take a look at this one.

Wings Hauser (remember him as the villain from Vice Squad?) and Lee Montgomery are completely believable as the siblings here, and director Cardos does a fine job of conveying the small town sensibility.

Marred slightly by the inferior make-up and an all too obvious boom mike shadow on the walls in some sequences.
