Horror News Network has been providing a lot of coverage of 20th Century Fox’s New Mutants ever since the project was labeled as a “super hero horror film”.

She would go to say that, “New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous.
