Alternate Versions

The out of print British video was trimmed for time reasons. Simply, the video company Vipco video cut the 99 minute film to fit on a 90 minute tape. Unlike their release of the Driller Killer which removed a 6 minute chunk for the same reasons, the cuts to Island of the Mutations are spread throughout the film- making it hard to work out exactly what's missing. However the tape is noticeably absent of Jose discovering the underground ship and being knocked out by Rackham's henchmen and Claude being beaten up, force-fed a Voodoo potion and suffering a nightmare.

missing footage?
23 May 2009 | by PeterBradfordSee all my reviews

I saw this movie on television as SCREAMERS and loved it. I heard an interesting story about this film. When Roger Corman released it to drive-ins in the summer of 1981, his trailer department sent out an advance trailer which was not actually footage from the film. It was allegedly footage of a naked woman being chased around a laboratory set by a monster. During the film's opening at drive-in's, irate customers complained the did not see the movie they paid to see. Theater owners called Corman and said their customers felt ripped off. So Corman had to run off copies of the footage, and send the positive film to theater owners to splice into the film themselves. Since the footage was never part of the film negative, it has not appeared in any video, DVD or television broadcast. Has anyone ever seen this footage? Anyone who saw this film at a drive-in in the summer of 1981 remember this?
