Another brilliant release from Arrow.

The Blu-ray is good in some scenes, but over all not the best, it gets a 3/5.

You get two discs and a nice revisable cover, AKA Fail Break.

Plus you get a nice little booklet with info about the film.

Arrow Films continue their penchant for giving sub-par horror films the genuine five star treatment and this 1984 shocker 'The Mutilator' (aka 'Fall Break') is no exception.

Whilst cleaning one his father's rifles as a birthday surprise, young Ed Jr. accidentally puts a bullet into his mother - instantly killing her. 'Big Ed' (Jack Chatham), the boy's father never forgives him and the two lose touch. Fast forward many years and young Ed has now grown up to be Matt ('Basket Case 2') Mitler, who with his friends are at a lose end and cannot decide what to do for their college's upcoming fall break. Out of the blue, 'Big Ed' calls his son demanding that he clean up their beachfront condo and close it for the winter. Against his better judgement, Ed's friends (Ruth Martinez, Bill Hitchcock, et al) convince him to accept the job - however, a mysterious stranger is hiding out at the condo and is determined to put a stop to their booze and sex filled break. Using whatever tools he has at his disposal, the stranger is on full vendetta mode and poor 'ol Ed and his buddies will be hunted and murdered in a myriad of gruesome ways until the strangers identity is finally revealed... and y'know, that's kinda it.

The movie itself (directed by one hit wonder, Buddy Cooper) is a hit and miss affair. Slow and plodding with below average acting (except for lead Matt Mitler who does a fine job), the film is reminiscent of a time where the stalk and slash genre had definitely slowed down to a laborious crawl... and this one shows.

The Fall Break song makes you sing along...it was a long wait until finally Arrow Video released this one hit wonder fine slasher movie. It is the typical setting of youngsters going to the beach house where they (SPOILER ALERT) get slaughtered by one the main characters father who uses all kind of tools to kill. The killings are so old skool that it makes it much more fun to watch than nowadays CGI controlled horror movies. Going on a Fall Break ! It is hilarious...the song is a stuck song syndrome but a nice one. An essential purchase of the true old skool slasher movie fan !

This film is one of my fave movies. It has everything a bad horror movie can have. Gore galore, sex, and of course the bad acting. I have been a big horror film fan for years now. I love thesort of horror flicks that have poor dialogue and follow the same tired old story. If you are not the sort of person into films like Friday 13th and the Burning then you will probably hate this movie. Buy if you are like me and simply are looking for a cheesy cliched and entertaining horror movie, then this is your film.

PLOT...
A group of youngsters take a fall break to an empty family condo on the beach, they intended it to be a weekend of sex drinking and fun but it turns in a nightmare when they start to be horribly murdered one by one, being a remote place with hardly anyone around will anyone survive!!

This is certainly and amazing Arrow Blu-ray release of probably one of the more outrageous and genius slasher movies of the 80's, an easy to follow story that has a simple set up right from the start, a cool cast of youngsters lined up for the slaughter, your usual stereotype cool dudes and hot girls, the movie is a little predictable and some of the acting is cheesy but the lavish gore effects keep you drawn to these types of movies, and the brutal kill sequences in this movie are very well done indeed, plenty of blood and limbs everywhere, this movie has been passed uncut and is the full unrated version. If you love classic 80's slashers this is a must have on the list!!

Movie looks great in HD 1080p (New 2K restoration)
English Subtitles.
Features are great, a new making of featurette 1hr-15mins, audio commentaries, effects feature, interviews, screen tests, and more
Reversible sleeve with original Fall Break cover, A nice slipcase too.
Region FREE ABC, DVD region FREE 0, 86-mins running time, 1984.

Buddy Cooper's infamous seasonal slasher favourite The Mutilator (aka Fall Break) makes it's belated high definition debut courtesy of cult movie distributor Arrow Films. For the patient fan of 80s horror this special edition has been a long time in the coming but rest assured this Blu ray/DVD combo package will undoubtedly be the definitive version thanks to a brand new 2k restoration (from a 35mm print that was found at the library of Congress of all places) which not only presents The Mutilator in widescreen for the first time but is also completely uncut and uncensored restoring all the carnage missing from the BBFC scissored Vipco release and the softer 'R' rated American cut. This special edition also comes loaded with exclusive supplementary material, a glossy insert booklet, a postcard reproduction of the theatrical art and as always from Arrow a reversible sleeve this time with alternative poster design featuring the films rarely used title of "Fall Break". It is worth noting that Arrow have released The Mutilator simultaneously in the UK and US with both releases being identical in quality and content and the print used for this transfer bears the "Fall Break" title card over the opening credits.

Synopsis:
Opening a number of years before the main events of the movie we meet up with a young boy called Ed who accidentally shoots his mother dead whilst attempting to clean his father's hunting rifle as a birthday surprise.
