Top Trivia Edit

Rob Gilger only got a fraction of the budget he requested from the studio for the film, which meant that Burpin' Bannock's pustules had to be constructed out of half-chewed wine gums.


Notable Scenes Edit

Jimmy: Alright, all I have to do is get the mutants in the van before Doctor Goomer gets back to the lab. I can do this. No one will ever know they were here.

He enters a lecture auditorium in which all seventy freaks are engaged in a bizarre musical ritual. Lumpy is beating out a rhythm on the podium using two mangled arm bones as drumsticks while Burpin' Bannock makes "Og og og" noises to a tune similar to the song "Bare Necessities". The remaining mutants are dancing and feasting on any of the professors within reach.

Jimmy: Oh boy.


Critical Reception Edit

"I tried to enjoy this movie in a postmodern way. I tried to enjoy it ironically, dialectically, reflectively, speculatively and sublatively. Finally I was able to have a pretty good time watching it appositionally, but it was still a bit of a struggle." - Tom Jacobs, Weekend In Color
