Dusty Nelson, USA, 1980, AGFA

A mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare from the dawn of the Eighties. 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm print!

"The DAY FOR NIGHT of horror." -- Focus on Film

"An unsettling climax that takes 'illusion vs. reality' to disturbing lengths." -- Mondo Digital

This underseen meta-horror stars three of George Romero's close friends from Pittsburgh: Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead), Joe Pilato (Day of the Dead) and John Harrison (Creepshow). Cobbled together with a truckload of heart, this eerie De Palma riff has a casual hangout akin to Robert Altman.

It's a low-budget horror film about a low-budget horror film gone very, very wrong. As the cast and crew's madness settles in, a second crew clandestinely makes "the ultimate horror picture": real victims, real blood, real death. In a Roy Scheider-like slow-burn performance, Joe Pilato stars as a cameraman targeted as the next victim -- or was his cast to be snuffed from the very beginning?
