I am really looking forward to seeing this film. It's distributor, Lionsgate has once again dropped the ball with this film, sending it in select theaters for a limited release and then releasing it on DVD. They did that shit with The Midnight Meat Train (one of the best horror films I've seen in a long time), Repo! The Genetic Opera and now with Mutant Chronicles. You can't bank on the Saw franchise forever. That piece of shit's on it's last legs already. The movie stars Ron Perlman, Thomas Jane, Devon Aoki, John Malkovich, Anna Walton and is directed by
Here's a synopsis of the film:
In the year 2707, war rages between earths four giant corporations as they battle over the planet's dwindling resources. In an era marked by warfare and social regression, the earth is on the verge of ruin, destruction is everywhere; battles explode on every ravaged continent. Amidst heavy combat, an errant shell shatters an ancient buried seal releasing a horrific mutant army from its eternal prison deep within the earth. As the mutant scourge threatens human extinction, a single squad of soldiers descends into the earth to fulfill the ages-old prophesy of the MUTANT CHRONICLES and save mankind.
MUTANT CHRONICLES, directed by Simon Hunter and written by Philip Eisner, is an epic sci-fi/action thriller like no other.
