Underworld (also called Transmutations) is a 1985 British horror film written by Clive Barker and James Caplin. It stars Denholm Elliott, Nicola Cowper, Steven Berkoff, Larry Lamb, Ingrid Pitt, Irina Brook and Art Malik. The film was directed by George Pavlou.
Dr. Savary (Elliott), a sinister biochemist, has created a subhuman species that dwells in the city's underground. Addicted to Savary's mind-expanding drug, his creations suffer from grotesque disfigurements. The victims' only hope for an antidote lies in kidnapping Nicole (Cowper), a high-class prostitute. Roy Bain (Lamb), a fearless adventurer and Nicole's former lover, is hired to save her.
After a quick cinema run in the UK, the film was given a limited release in the United States by Empire Pictures in April 1986. Two years later, the film was released on video cassette by Vestron Video.
