One of the fun things about horror entertainment are the special effects that go into making all of your favorite movie monsters and bad guys. With a lack of programming dedicated to SFX, specifically in horror, it’s hard for fans to really get a sense of how SFX makeup is actually done and what it takes to be a true artist. Now, thanks to Fangoria and Nerdist Industries, horror fans will soon have a show where they can have an insider’s look and learn how to make projects worth putting in the movies.
Fangoria and Nerdist Industries are teaming up to bring viewers a DIY make-up series which will air on the newly launched Nerdist Channel on Youtube. The show, Fangoria’s Blood & Guts with Scott Ian, will be hosted by the horror fanatic and Anthrax guitarist as he guides audiences through the magical word of special effects make-up.
Ian will introduce fans to masters of gore as they teach viewers how to create their very own horror SFX make-up. In response to his latest career venture, Ian states, “I’ve been neck-deep in blood and guts for the last 30 years playing in Anthrax…so I couldn’t be more excited to be hosing a show called Blood & Guts, for you horror and metal fans.”
