AGFA Selects • Horror, Thriller
You’ve seen a lot of horror movies. But you’ve never seen anything like EFFECTS. Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero’s friends, this is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. A group of coked-up filmmakers -- including Tom “DAWN OF THE DEAD” Savini and Joe "DAY OF THE DEAD" Pilato -- gather in Pittsburgh to make a slasher called DUPED: THE SNUFF MOVIE. As filming begins and “accidents” happen, it’s clear that something isn’t right. And no one can be trusted. Landing somewhere between Michael and Roberta Findlay’s SNUFF and a student film by Brian DePalma, EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own.
