Blood Splatter: A Guide to Cinematic Zombie Violence, Gore and Special Effects

Author Craig Chenery has released a new reference guide to zombie flicks with a special eye on their special effects and gore! With this sub-genre going super nova over the last few years, I'm positive Craig covers at least a few zombie flicks you haven't heard yet!

From the cover blurb:

... an in depth look at zombie movies and how they have been shaped by gore and special effects. The book contains over 300 movie reviews, highlighting almost 5,500 special effects. Each film has detailed criteria including zombie count, zombie death count, human death count, effects quantity and quality and zombie quality. All special effects have been highlighted allowing the reader to locate each bite, headshot and disembowelment. Additionally, the book contains over 300 never before published behind the scenes pictures and production sketches, thirty five exclusive interviews with industry professionals such as Greg Nicotero, Tom Savini, John Russo, Lloyd Kaufman, John Vulich, Robert Kurtzman, Everett Burrell and an in depth journal documenting my experience of the makeup process from one of Hollywoods leading FX artists.

"Blood Splatter" can be yours right now for a mere $25.99 over at Amazon!
