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. As filming begins and accidents happen, it's clear that something isn't right. And no one can be trusted.
