Press Quotes

Smoke and Mirrors has some worthwhile moments, especially for those with little to no knowledge of Savini, it does well to show why he is so revered in the genre.

     —Royale With Cheese

Beautifully executed and a film that makes the highly talented, intriguing Tom Savini even more endearing.

     —Cryptic Rock

Tom Savini's fire appears impossible to extinguish, and 'Smoke and Mirrors' makes sure everyone can see how brightly that blaze burns.

     —Culture Crypt

The importance of his contributions to cinema is never forgotten, but the value of the man over the work takes center stage.

     —UK Film Review

A fascinating glimpse into one of the most iconic special effects make-up artists and filmmakers of our time. It is quite thorough yet never repetitive, as every minute is utterly absorbing.

     —Film Threat
