DIY splatterpunk film directors take note, Erik Beck from Indy Mogul posted an Instructable on making a cheap yet effective decapitation effect for your next slasher movie. The ingredients include: a test dummy, fake head (we used styrofoam), foam, liquid latex (preferably in a skin color), garden sprayer, valve, 6 bottles of food coloring, and a balloon. Link


  1. This rocks! Thanks for linking to us David. Much blood was shed in creating this video but we think it was worth it!

    And remember we take challenges – so if you want us to create a hollywood special effect for under $50, go to our site and leave a request!

  2. I hope that I’m not the only one that expected that the person explaining the method would have his head suddenly be chopped off mid-explanation. [seriously, why didn’t that happen?]

  3. Gotta love that the “Indy Mogul” is sponsored by a big brand Hollywood movie.
    Otherwise, it’s a pretty cool thing they did, and it’s not that he’s over enunciating, it just seems that way because of the way his mouth moves I think.
