It took quite a while to prepare for this shot since pretty much everything is homemade. The wound is made out of liquid latex, the blood is corn syrup and food coloring, the mask is made out of papier mache and real hair that I chopped from my girlfriend's head that night. Also, that heart is a real beef heart!

I don't usually shoot these kind of shots but I'm a huge horror fan so suffice to say; I had blast.

Reign in Blood. Maybe not enough in the image, IDK.
Anyway, great planning and editing job. Works for me.


Alter of sacrifice? Are you sure about that?

"Waiting the hour destined to die
Here on the table of hell
A figure in white unknown by man
Approaching the altar of death"


I've been listening to this since I was like 10 years old, I hope I got it 'somewhat' right. XD

Great work on the concept and the props - shot is well done, too! Definitely deserved better but glad you enjoyed the process.

Needs more blood for good effect I think. Great pick of one of the greatest bands and a song from a top album.

This is a great shot with a well lit subject and a carefully chosen enivronment. The main distraction for me is the amount of life remaining in the dead girl's eyes. She just seems too bright still...I know that's a bit ambiguous, and I apologize.

Great job with the make up, it really makes the scene impressive!

I like how everything is "homemade", the heart, the wounds etc. The way the models are dressed are typical of an horror movie, something between Friday the 13th and Frankenstein. It look somehow realistic, and technically I like the direction of the shadows and also the texture of the walls.

Good job !

This is really well done... but still... I don't want to look at it. *sigh*
I'm not voting anyway... so my opinion may, or my not, count to you. :D
