F/X

F/X is a 1986 American action-thriller film about Rollie Tyler, an expert in the art of special effects with a reputation built by his work on many low-budget hack-and-slash films such as I Dismember Mama. The Department of Justice hires him to stage the murder of a gangster about to enter the Witness Protection Program. He agrees, but then things get complicated. Meanwhile, New York City police detective Leo McCarthy is investigating the faked murder and cannot understand why the Justice Department is even less helpful than usual. A sequel, F/X2: The Deadly Art of Illusion, was released in 1991. A spinoff TV series entitled F/X: The Series was produced from 1996 to 1998. ... more on Wikipedia
