How do you fight the War on Drugs? The year is 1984 and the government is developing a fast-growing mold that could quickly wipe out a coca field in just days or even faster. But, the Reagan administration gets more than it bargained for when the slimy green stuff gets a taste for human flesh.
That’s the premise of this oozy bit of sci-fi horror fun done on an extremely low-budget. “Mold!” is quite entertaining for the most part. It’s a throwback to the slimy radioactive/toxic chemical B-movies of that era. It’s obvious the filmmakers don’t take themselves seriously. The actors seem to be having quite a fun time. And, that combination translates to fun for the audience as well.
Don’t go in with high expectations. This film is cheesy and can’t always deliver. But, I was happy enough to sit through this nonsense. You might like it as well. Grade: C+
