Plot Sypnosis:

Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero’s friends, EFFECTS 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, Joe "DAY OF THE DEAD" Pilato, and John “TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE” Harrison—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. A gritty melting pot of De Palma-like shocks and Carpenter-esque tension, EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and chilling movie on its own. AGFA is honored to present the worldwide UHD debut of EFFECTS, newly restored in 4K from its original, long-lost 16mm camera negative.
