"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

The Mutilator, or Fall Break as the title card tells us, is a long lost 80's slasher that has found it's way to a very nice restoration. The plot is simple: Three couples go to a beach house to spend their fall break from college. One by one they are picked off by a killer.

Pretty standard slasher fare. What really sets this movie apart from other slashers are the kills and the location. The movie takes place at a beach house, which lends itself to a lot of locations that are used throughout the movie. I have seen plenty of slashers, but I have never seen one take place on a beach.

The kills are the high point of the movie. Almost every kill, the exception being a drowning, is graphic and creative. The gore is not revolting, but fun. There are a few kills here that I have never seen before, which is always nice.

The Mutilator is a really good slasher. It is not as good as Blood Rage, which was made the same year but released two years after The Mutilator. I had a lot of fun watching this movie. Give it a shot.
