Melty Movie Make-Up
For HOUSEBOUND, I used a combination of butterscotch pudding, pinkish lotion from the dollar store and fake blood (corn syrup, red food coloring and a little chocolate syrup to darken it up) to make mushy gushy melting FX for several characters who get bitten by an little monster. If not for the lotion, it would've smelled delicious and probably tasted pretty good. Simple stuff, but it's grossed out more than a few folks.
Above, we see Shannon - what a trooper!!!
By the way, there's going to be a screening of HOUSEBOUND and THE SEEKERS on Friday, October 17, 9 p.m. at the Northern Lights Theater Pub in Salem, Oregon. If you are in the area, come on down, drink some beer and watch some horror flicks!
