Post-Apocalyptic A to Z: Mutants
Mutants are a staple of science fiction gaming too, as I discussed in my post about the classic RPG Gamma World. There are plenty of movie mutants too, like from the 1993 Spanish film Accion Mutante. This dark comedy is set in a grim future ruled by attractive people. A resistance group of ugly mutants called Accion Mutante ("Mutant Action") goes on a rampage, culminating in the kidnapping of the daughter of a wealthy businessman at her wedding after slaughtering the entire party.
The mutants flee in their spaceship and get into all sorts of adventures, with the head mutant and the rich girl falling in love (sort of). It's a weird, fun little film that's been given English subtitles, so track it down if you can.
