Romero, and beyond. Smoke and Mirrors is the defining documentary on the life and career of horror icon Tom Savini.

Not only does the documentary feature Tom Savini himself, but it also features interviews with Danny McBride, Robert Rodriguez, Danny Trejo, Alice Cooper, Greg Nicotero, Tom Atkins, Corey Feldman, Doug Bradley, Bill Moseley, and more!

Savini’s incredible talents for special effects can be seen in classic films Dawn of the Dead and Creepshow 2 and series such as “Tales from the Darkside“.
