Mutant Chronicles is a 2009 independent science fiction horror film, loosely based on the role-playing game of the same name. The film was directed by Simon Hunter, and stars Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman. The film was released throughout Europe[1] in an unfinished form. The film premiered on VOD on March 27, 2009, and had a theatrical release for selected cities on April 24, 2009.[2] The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on August 4, 2009.



The story is set in the year 2707.[3] The world is loosely based on that of the Mutant Chronicles role-playing game, where many technologies are steam powered and mankind has exhausted Earth’s natural resources. The protagonists must battle against mutated humans that were accidentally unleashed.[4][5]

The plot revolves around a "machine" which came from space 10,000 years ago. The "machine" mutates people into nothing more than killing drones that drag new victims to the machine for conversion. Sealed away eons ago, the machine is accidentally uncovered during a large battle somewhere in Europe. Within six weeks the world is almost completely conquered by the mutant gangs. Most of the population has been evacuated to Mars. A group of soldiers are assembled to take another ancient device, presumed to be a bomb, to the heart of the machine in an attempt to destroy it. Most of the group is killed or converted before they find out the device they brought is an ignition "key" which sends the machine back into space. Only Hunter is left alive, but half mutated. The machine is last pictured flying towards a red planet.


Critical reception
