About this title

Synopsis:

"Blood Splatter: A Guide to Cinematic Zombie Violence, Gore and Special Effects" by Craig W. Chenery is an in depth look at how gore and special effects have influenced and defined the zombie genre.

Inside you will find:

An exhaustive look at over 300 zombie films including detailed criteria such as body count, zombie count, amount of gore and effects quality. Almost 5,500 gory effects shots have been highlighted. Every bite, headshot and disembowelment has been listed enabling the viewer to easily locate the best in zombie gore.

Thirty five exclusive interviews with the professionals who work behind the scenes to create them. TOM SAVINI (Dawn of the Dead), GREG NICOTERO (The Walking Dead, Land of the Dead), JOHN RUSSO (Night of the Living Dead), LLOYD KAUFMAN (CEO of Troma Entertainment) TOBY SELLS (The Crazies, Dance of the Dead, Zombieland), JOHN VULICH (Night of the Living Dead 1990), EVERETT BURRELL (Night of the Living Dead 1990), MARC PRICE (Colin), TONY GARDNER (Return of the Living Dead, Zombieland), STUART CONRAN (Shaun of the Dead) and many, many more discuss their techniques and adventures behind the camera.

Over 300 rare and never before published behind the scenes photographs and production sketches.

An in depth journal documenting the entire makeup process from life casting to application from one of Hollywood's leading SFX artists.
