Fantastic Flesh: The Art of Make-Up EFX (2008)

Fantastic Flesh not such a fantastic documentary. It should have been more in depth. They some of the greatest artists there being interviewed, why not ask them how they pulled of this and that! They had Savini there, why not ask him how they did the ''Choke on 'em'' death scene in Day of the Dead, or maybe ask about all the fantastic EFX in The Thing. It felt like the documentary wasn't completed. 58 minutes of some behind the scenes, interviews of directors and great artists, blood and gore and that's good fun, but I needed more. It's also weird how the documentary started with Narnia and the rest was pure horror.

Like I said, it didn't feel finished. More work should have been put into it and it felt rushed. But all in all it was fun.

And why are they mutilating Hugh Grant on the cover?
