So, I've got too much free time, and I want to film an amatuer zombie/gore movie. Obviously nothing groundbreaking, just something to do.

What I need are some ideas for decent looking blood and gore effects. Y'know, flesh ripping and dismemberment n'stuff.

Any ideas?

EDIT:
And preferably cheap.

Use like sauce for blood, but take away colour digitally or something like in the Taxi Driver shootout scene. Oh and slow down death/gore scenes, intesify with music and less colour.

(less colour will make the blood seem liek non bloodlike. well i think it will.

For a friend's film once we made a massive bucket of blood and it STAINS. Be careful.

As for bodily organs - animal intestines? Other animal organs?

Get one of your mates and hang 'em up on a meathook and then just take whatever organs u want when you need them. Best thing is it's free.

Nah but I've been thinking about doing this myself. I found a really good site the other day but I can't remember what the hell it was called, which makes this post pointless. But if I find it I'll let you know.

Watered-down ketchup, red Kool-Aid, and squashed berries make for some pretty convincing blood if done right.

Tape some ketchup packets to your body and go over them with makeup, just don't get too close as a good look will ruin the illusion.

Stuff one of the arms of your long-sleeve shirt with cotton or some sort of synthetic material and lightly stitch it on. Then tuck your arm inside the torso part of the shirt.

Split pea soup makes for some great vomit/ectoplasm/whatever.

The best formual for fake blood is Corn Syrup and Red food colour, with a bit of blue for a bit of darkness, it was used by Tom Savini in the original dawn of the dead movie, trust the master

Sounds good.
I'm not really at a loss for blood. I'm thinking more along the lines of stuff that I can use for flesh ripping.
I've actually considered buying the "Make Your Own Dildo Kit" here at the store so I can use the latex modelling stuff.

lol, i think your best bet is 2 get sum pig skin from a butchur, partially cut through the under side so it is weak, and tear that, pigs are very similar 2 humans

use latex t make appliances for cuts and stuff, the latex is cheap and you can carve the molds out of styrofoam if you cand afford to make good ones, you can also apply latex directly to the person and shape it as it dries. You can also carve some decent ones out of foam rubber, but i wont work as well as molded ones (which arent cheap to make)

oh and clear gelatin and/or yogurt is a great additive to fake blood to make it look congealed.

Like some people have said, go to a butcher and get some meat. If it's bad they'll sometimes just give it away for free. Also you can get some bones and stuff, so with some of the gory scenes you could show they ripped so much flesh you can see the bones and just put some fake blood on it, and then mold some of that fake skin stuff around it so that it looks like a real arm.

I don't know why i'm thinking this in depth, guess I'm tired and interested now. But get a bone bout 1 foot in length. Have a person wear a long sleeve shirt and make a tear in it from what ever purpose, knife, saw, zombie bite, whatever. Tape the bone to the arm on the inside showing it through the tear and put some skin mold around it to blend into the real skin and arm. Then apply fake blood around it and on the shirt. I always thought of doing a halloween costume like that. Never got around to it so that's all hypothetical nor do I have any experiance with it before. So it's something I just came up with and figure it might help your cause for the movie.

Go butcher the butcher like in Hannibal Rising. Then eat his cheeks. That's what all the hardXXXcore kids are doing nowadays.

My friend ditch does film studies, and did something with golden syrup and food colouring. It looked authentic.
