F/X (1986) – The Best Movie You Never Saw

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

What would happen if a horror movie special fx artist was framed for murder? That's the question F/X (1986), a movie I absolutely loved as a child of the eighties asks in this week's edition of "The Best Movie You Never Saw".

Bryan Brown stars as Rollie Tyler, a VFX guru who does a job for the government, but then finds himself framed. With a ragged cop (the late Brian Dennehy) on his trail, Tyler has no choice but to open up his bag of tricks and go to war with the organization that wants him dead. While F/X was enough of a hit movie to spawn a sequel (and a short-lived Canadian TV series) nowadays it seems unfairly obscure, so join us as we revisit this eighties cult classic.
