An Evening With Tom Savini
Conversation with Tom Savini will be moderated by Sam Zimmerman of Shudder.
It’s the merry month of Halloween, so it only makes sense that our ongoing screening series with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences should get into the spirit of the season. And in doing so, what better guest could we ask for than the Sultan of Splat, the God of Gore, Mr. Tom Savini, the actor, director, stuntman, and special effects whiz who made possible some of the most shocking moments in the Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchises, and who made such invaluable contributions to the filmography of George A. Romero? Join Tom for a very squishy walk down memory lane, as he moderates a highlight reel of his most awful, impressive, and impressively awful effects, discussing the astonishing body count he’s racked up during a lifetime in the horror business.
