Alternate Title:Chiller and Mutant

Miles is frozen and brought back to life 10 years later. He is cold and heartless. His own dog barks at him. Why? Because dogs are known to be "soul detectors." They can sniff out if a person has a soul or not. Apparently when you die and come back, your soul opts not to make the return trip. Having been frozen and thawed many times (first time was by accident) I can tell you that is not the case, although it is not good for the arthritis.

For some reason people without souls are stereotyped into the category of people with souls who behave badly, i.e. Peeping Toms have no soul.

The transfer quality of the film is very bad. Seriously, is this the best copy they had lying around? Even if it was a good copy, the film doesn't translate well into the 21st century. Pretty much a waste of time to watch it.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.


Brothers Josh (Wings Hauser) and Mike (Lee Montgomery) get stranded in a small southern town after a run-in with some locals on the highway. The town has been experiencing illness and disappearances. There is a biological/chemical facility nearby.

The mutants are not scary by modern standards. The opening credits has "Special Guest Appearance by Jennifer Warren" like they did for old TV shows. Indeed, this movie looks like it was made for TV down to the sound track, which may or may not have been better than the bad "Tempe Video" style I expected. The build up to the mutant scenes was better than the mutants themselves. I got bored at that point.

Fired lush Sheriff Bo Hopkins delivers comedy: "Proof? I got proof. I got 86 proof." That is about as good as it gets.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Fairly lame in adult material. I imagine the "R" rating is for the "horror" aspect.

This is a single, two-sided DVD.
