Editorial Reviews

Hosted by fright-master Tom Savini, creator of the gut-wrenching special effects in DAWN OF THE DEAD, CREEPSHOW and FRIDAY THE 13TH.

Tom Savini not only makes dreams real he brings nightmare to life. His effects range from walking corpses to exploding zombies. He has also created some wonderful monsters, like CREEPSHOW S FLUFFY and FFRIDAY THE 13TH s Jason .

In this video, he gives you step-by-step demonstrations of how some of his most shattering effects are achieved. If you are a film fan or a budding effects artist, you will gain a firsthand look at how cinematic illusions are created and you ll be able to do many of them yourself!

Don't make the same mistake I made.

It's not horrible; I certainly learned a few things about many of his less popular movies.

I'm a huge fan of Tom Savini's work. Even met the guy a while ago while From Dusk till Dawn was out. The guy is REALLY incredible at making blood and guts look real! With years of experience (and time in Vietnam as a photographer), he knows his stuff.

So when I came across this little film I was expecting something more than what I got. It's not horrible; I certainly learned a few things about many of his less popular movies. It's basically him in his studio with director John Russo (Midnight, Dark Craving, and I haven't seen either of these films) talking about how he comes up with ideas. It's interesting, but hardly educational.

You're probably better off with something like Monster Make Up Hosted by Dick Smith, but since I haven't seen that either, I couldn't tell you.

If you're looking for a little insight into Savini's work, without much as to HOW he does it, then this VERY SHORT film is for you.

Being a fan of Savini's work and having an interest in makeup effects, I requested (and received) this as a birthday present. A few things that ought to be noted.

First, this DVD is ripped from an interview shot in 1987, with the slightly murky video quality of the era- it looks like footage from a local cable channel.

Secondly, while the product description drops hints that this is an instructional video, it's more of an interview interspersed with shots of the effects in action- that is to say, there are only the vaguest descriptions as to the construction and workings of each. There's some brief talk about how each was made, and typically some shot of the end result (with some neat backstage archival footage), and the stories he tells are fun, but if you're looking for makeup instruction, you may want to keep looking.

I got this not reading the other reviews and I wish I had. I have recenlty got the idea to try to make some of my own halloween props and thought this would help me. Insted it was about an hour lon interview shot sometime in the 80's with scenes from movies he had shot up til that point. It doesn't really teach you anything and the stuff that they do show is probably long since out dated. The only plus side I found in this is that I can get him to sign the cover when I go to a horror convention in a couple months. I hope this helps future buyers of this item

It's an interview. I thought I was buying something that would actually "teach" me something. The copyright date is 2008, but what it should say is "I got taken out of a clip from the 70's." I'd like to get my money back- but I guess I should be more careful with my purchases. Buyers beware!!!!! Don't make the same mistake I made.

My grandson is into special effects makeup and has a lot of equipment related to this specialty. He found this book to be interesting and helpful. The author is one of his favorites so he was delighted to get it for his birthday.
