Special Effects

Dir: Larry Cohen
Star: Eric Bogosian, Zoe Tamerlis, Brad Rijn, Kevin O'Connor

[7] One of the best psychological thrillers I've seen in a long time, has Tamerlis playing an actress, murdered by a director (Bogosian), who films the event and uses it as a basis for his next film, getting the murdered woman's husband to play the murdered woman's husband, and an actress, played by Zoe Tamerlis, in the role of the victim. Then art starts imitating life... Inventive and gripping, with Tamerlis giving both characters depth, and Cohen's direction keeping the viewer locked in their seat. Is it real or is it Memorex? Who cares, when the result is this good!
