Tom Savini is a freaking legend, the guy has provided us with some of the greatest gore f/x for years, using simple things such as latex, syrup and possibly other house hold items instead of the now more commonly used technique of CGI.
Quite some time ago Savini left f/x behind and appeared in films instead of creating the gore for films and while I think he is just as bad-ass on screen I’ve always missed his f/x work.
Well, according to IF.com after almost a decade, Savini is back doing what he does best, make people look f**ked up! The legend has come out of f/x retirement to apply make-up and f/x the Australian film Mary Doe.
Tom Savini has also done f/x work for another Australian flick Redd inc. which we have mentioned before, you can check it out HERE. Mary Doe is written and directed by Nick Nicolaou, check out the synopsis;
“A twelve-day trek across the desert and the insignificant form that is Mary Doe has exhausted all life within her. Rescued from death’s door, she finds herself abandoned with five men, in a decommissioned government facility used for testing biological weapons.
Lost with no memory of who she is and no placement in this world, she finds no reason to want to win her freedom – to journey BACK FROM THE DEAD…
Isolation breeds paranoia – no one can hide from their demons forever. As Mary unravels her past, the world she has fallen into crumbles down around her. The MUTANTS have found their way into the bunker. She has to gather her strength and find a reason to want to live – to want to get out of this HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.
Mary Doe is a Horror/Thriller, in the vein of films such as: Alien, The Thing, Dawn of the Dead and The Terminator.
Murder, Deception, Justice… A classic Noir Femme Fatale story set in the world of the BANISHED and the UNDEAD.”
