Savini Back in the FX Game for Two Australian Flicks


Redd, Inc. and…

An article for an Australian news outlet has revealed that Tom Savini came out of retirement to assist and supervise FX on two upcoming films: Redd, Inc. and Mary Doe.

The former, directed by Daniel Krige, takes today’s popular “strangers trapped in a single location” scenario, except this time it’s strangers (led by an abducted web cam model) who wind up in an office and are subjected to sundry cruelty from a wrongly-convicted serial killer.

Nicholas Hope plays the lead baddie against actress Kelly Paterniti. Savini has a cameo.

Mary Doe, meanwhile, is seeking funds and aims to roll soon under the direction of Nick Nicolaou. That film is a zombie tale.
