In the wake of Tom Savini‘s segment of “Creepshow” airing last month, Shudder has announced today that the documentary Smoke and Mirrors: The Story of Tom Savini will *finally* be released soon, making its streaming premiere via Shudder on December 16!
Special Makeup effects legend, actor, director and stuntman Tom Savini has redefined the horror genre with his arsenal of talents. But who is the man behind the “KING OF SPLATTER?”
“From his childhood in Pittsburgh to his tour of duty during Vietnam, to his beginnings with George A. Romero and beyond, Smoke and Mirrors is the defining documentary on the life and career of a horror icon.”
The documentary features interviews with Tom Savini, Danny McBride, Robert Rodriguez, Danny Trejo, Alice Cooper, George A. Romero, Greg Nicotero, Sid Haig, Doug Bradley, Caroline Williams, Jerry Only, Tom Atkins, Jerry Only, Corey Feldman and Howard Berger.
Jason Baker directed Smoke and Mirrors, which will also be available on Shudder Canada.
