In this fascinating meta-slasher, a gang of filmmakers shooting a horror movie out in the Pennsylvania woods start to suspect that the murders they’re filming aren’t entirely fake. Most slasher pictures are populated with attractive people out camping, smoking dope, blowing rails of coke, and having sex this one is, too, except, in between — and sometimes during — all that, there’s a lot of chatter about artistic integrity, creative vision, and the pragmatic nuts-and-bolts of moviemaking itself. Made by a bunch of George Romero’s posse — including Tom Savini, who performs double-duty, playing the head sleazebag and also overseeing the makeup — Effects is not always the most exciting thing, but it remains a deeply idiosyncratic little gem.

Today, apart from the significant economic progress, India is still facing its old problems: Poverty, overpopulation, environmental pollution as well as ethnic and religious conflicts between Hindus and Muslims. Additionally, the Kashmir conflict has not come to an end yet, while both Pakistan and Indian are threatening each other with their arsenals of atomic weapons.
