American Genre Film Archive presents the Philly Premiere of the newly restored EFFECTS (1980)!

Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero’s friends in Pittsburgh, EFFECTS is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. The movie was produced by John Harrison (composer of CREEPSHOW, who also stars) and stars Joe Pilato (DAY OF THE DEAD) and Tom Savini (DAWN OF THE DEAD). Landing somewhere between Michael and Roberta Findlay’s SNUFF and a student film by John Carpenter, EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own. Restored from the only the only theatrical print in existence!

Doors 7:00, Movie 7:30, $10 admission
