JULIE EGE IN 'THE FREAKMAKER' AKA 'THE MUTATIONS'

Julie Ege in THE FREAKMAKER aka THE MUTATIONS Year: 1974 Rating: ***1/2
Originally titled THE MUTATIONS, which is a much better and far more logical fit since THE FREAKMAKER Donald Pleasence, a mellow college professor/secret mad scientist, is only important and formidable during the first half...
