Description: This low-budget, Pittsburgh-lensed thriller takes a semi-satirical look at the low-budget horror film industry. The story centers on an insane filmmaker who hopes his crowning achievement will be a snuff documentary about the actual demise of a film crew working on a horror-movie shoot. Obviously, the director's real cast and crew are none too pleased to find themselves unwilling participants in this project. Fans of steeltown horror movie icon George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) will spot a few of the director's frequent collaborators--including producer-editor Pasquale A. Buba, composer John Harrison, and FX guru Tom Savini, who also appears in a small cameo-- although Romero himself was not involved. Released to video as The Manipulator.~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide
