Horror F/X (1989)

Director: Paul McCollough

Starring: Tom Savini, Lia Savini, John Russo, Everett Burrell, Greg Funk, Jerry Gergely, Will Huff, Nancy Savini, John Vulich

More info: ???

Plot:  John Russo interviews frequent collaborator and fellow Pittsburgh horror movie maker, Tom Savini, in this low-budget shot-on-video documentary.

My rating:  7/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

This 37 minute documentary is only going to be fun for Savini fans or fans of makeup and creature effects.  Tom touches on how he got started and moments in his career showing us some behind the scenes footage of some of his pictures and test footage of his creations.  That's the neat part.  He's such an easy interview and I dig this cat's enthusiasm.  It's all too short but it's a gas spending a half hour with the guy and hearing stories behind some of his most famous work of the 80s.
