It has recently been announced that AGFA will be doing a Blu-ray and theatrical release of the 1980 low budget film Effects.
Effects is a an underrated, low-budget (estimated budget of $55,000) film that not many people know about. The movie was produced by John Harrison (composer of Creepshow, who also stars) and directed and written by Dusty Nelson. The film is based off William H. Mooney’s novel Snuff and stars Joe Pilato (Day of the Dead) and FX guru Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead). Effects is a meta take on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own.
The film’s official synopsis:
Some crew members of a company shooting a horror film begin to suspect that the killings in the movie are real, and that they are actually making a snuff film.
AGFA is currently working on a new 4K scan of Effects from the original theatrical print. This is a must have for any collector of the horror genre. None of the specs or special features have been announced yet, but stay tuned to PopHorror where we will have more information once it’s revealed.
