Above Pic: The Mutilation Man in Action
Ahhh another day, another torture related film. The Mutilation Man opening credits show a man in his garage being tortured and eventually being killed by a large ominous silent man in a form fitting face mask. The killer is silent, not even saying a word to his victim. The foreboding music, the sparse sets, and lack of adequate lighting permeate this 80 minute film.
The Cole Brothers do a decent job with very limiting funding, but this film comes off as a bad Saw ripoff with very wooden acting. Later in Mutilation Man, our killer, decked out in an appropriate Jason style flannel shirt, enters the house of an unsuspecting couple on their anniversary night during awkward, uninspired passion.

Well guess what happens, they are tortured. Later in the film we find out that these are not random killings. I don't want to spoil it. The film moves along at the same pace as a wounded snail chasing a three legged turtle. The only decent thing about this film is that there is no corny dialogue, there are some cool jump scenes, and appropriate music.
For horror fans The Mutilation Man rates a rent a 4.5 out of 10. For casual fans and non B movie fans I rate this one a skip.
