    Just goes to show you that over the course of reviewing films, especially horror films, some little nuggets of presentation can manage to escape you...then again there comes a time when one of these aforementioned nuggets can pop up, making you wish that it had never discovered you in the first place. For a film that was essentially concocted with scraps of dough, EFFECTS is one of those movies that depicts a movie within a movie, yet the people in the ...

    Confusion and misdirection, albeit in small bites is a nice prescription when checking out a horror film.
