My dad went to film school in Austin, Texas in fact he was a freshman the year after Tobe Hooper graduated. He told me that as part of a class he had to watch 'Eggshells.' What he liked most about it was that it showed the power of editing, just simple cuts and that was all it needed. There was one scene in particular, of a man having a sword fight with himself he would swing the sword, and BAM! cut he would appear on the other side ready to parry, the scene probably took hours to choreograph but for the primitive effects it was truly remarkable.
I would love to try to find a copy of it somewhere, i may just have to go to Austin to get it.
