Press Quotes

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

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

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

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

Smoke and Mirrors: The Story of Tom Savini is both an intimate and amazing look at one of horror movie's greatest special effects masters as we get to see his life both on and off-screen, his influences, and his life as a family man as well.


An entertaining look at one of the ones who helped define a generation of horror filmmaking.

     —Sonic Cinema

A love letter to a man whose passion for gruesome fun has inspired thousands and touched millions.
