AGFA to release EFFECTS (1980) on Blu-ray and in theaters!

By Joe Ziemba • March 10, 2017

We are beyond excited to announce that our second Blu-ray and theatrical release following THE ZODIAC KILLER will be 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.

AGFA is currently working on a new 4K scan of EFFECTS from our original theatrical print — the only one in existence.

Stay tuned for more info on this summer’s release of EFFECTS!
