Was Expecting More

"I'm a huge fan of Tom Savini's work. Even met the guy a while ago while From Dusk till Dawn was out. The guy is REALLY incredible at making blood and guts look real! With years of experience (and time in Vietnam as a photographer), he knows his stuff.
So when I came across this little film I was expecting something more than what I got. It's not horrible; I certainly learned a few things about many of his less popular movies. It's basically him in his studio with director John Russo (Midnight, Dark Craving, and I haven't seen either of these films) talking about how he comes up with ideas. It's interesting, but hardly educational.
You're probably better off with something like Monster Make Up Hosted by Dick Smith, but since I haven't seen that either, I couldn't tell you.
If you're looking for a little insight into Savini's work, without much as to HOW he does it, then this VERY SHORT film is for you."
