The Mutant Chronicles is an original sci-fi flick that’s out the periphery of our dradis.? It star Tom Jane, Ron Perleman and John Malkovich and was directed by Simon Hunter.
It’s got a super cool premise and look to the film (it’s like steampunk blended with World War I trench warfare).? Basically, in the future, after Earth’s resources have been depleted, the world is controlled by four corporations (The Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima and The Imperial) and their respective Armies.
Official Plot Synopsis: Mitch Hunter (Tom Jane) and Nathan Rooker, battle hardened Capitol soldiers, fight a desperate battle against a Bauhaus advance. When an errant shell destroys an ancient stone seal, they find themselves facing a new enemy: hideous necromutants, with boneblades that grow from their arms. Mitch barely manages to escape. Nathan does not.
The mutants multiply by millions and they destroy all before them. The Corporations’ leader, Constantine (Malkovich), is about to abandon the planet and leave countless innocents to their desperate fate, when he is approached by Brother Samuel (Perleman), leader of the Brotherhood, an ancient monastic order.
Samuel is keep of the Chronicles, a book that prophesies both the rise of the Mutants, and the ‘Deliverer’ that will destroy them. Samuel believes he is that Deliverer destined to journey deep into the earth and destroy the source of the mutant scourge.
He manages to recruit Mitch, along with a handful of like-minded soldiers: Steiner, honor bound Bauhaus officer; sword wielding Severian; street fighter El Jesus; fearless beauty Duval; and stoic warrior Juba.
“Mutant Chronicle” follows Mitch and Samuel’s mission to venture into the very heart of the darkness in an attempt to save the planet from marauding hordes of deathless mutants.
