I’m rating the movie, not the subject and certainly not the man. I love Savini’s work but this documentary is rough. I feel like there is a legitimately good hour long look at the make-up master in here, but this 90 minute collection of often badly shot and mic’ed talking heads gets tedious fast and feels twice as long.

What a beautiful look into the life and career of a great man. We wouldn’t have a lot of the films us horror nerds love without Tom.
