FANGORIA magazine has inspired some of the biggest names in the art of the macabre, and that list includes special FX artist Vincent Damyanovich. In a recent interview he shared, "I grew up on FANGORIA and it was a main factor of influence on my decision to pursue effects makeup as a career. I am just glad I can now give back by offering cool new products."
Damyanovich, developer of the Northern California based special FX company Designer Gore, has tapped into the imaginations of young and up-and-coming horror artists with his series of affordable FX products, kits and DVDs.
Damyanovich, who has a background in theater, set design and professional special FX makeup, is a horror renaissance man and a graduate of legendary Dick Smith's Advanced Professional Make-Up Course. With a genuine passion for the genre, this artist is making it easy for the next generation of aspiring gore artists to get into the act, beginning with three essential items you'll find on his site.
The first killer concoction, the "Ultimate FX Tray," includes 16 designs, from cuts, gashes and bullet hits, to scars, cysts and warts, all in one tray. For only $20, this large tray is an essential ghastly grab for readers of any skill or production level.
The realistic Designer Gore "Flesh FX" kit is the next set sure to pique the interest of aspiring horror artists. Available in several sizes, this kit allows you to make your own flexible life-like scars, cuts, burns and wounds. Included are mix sticks, cups and all the tools the artist will need in doctoring their subjects.
And finally we have Designer Gore's bloodcurdling signature piece “The Heart Stopper." This limited-quantity (only 75 made a year) prop fabricated chainsaw is so realistic that it will have Leatherface stopping in his dancing tracks. Meticulously and beautifully crafted, the chainsaw boasts a five-inch speaker backed by an industrial Mp3 player and power amp that operates on a rechargeable Li-ion battery (charger included), bringing the sound of the growling implement of dismemberment to your own backyard massacre. The wicked 60 second trailer on Designer Gore's website offers a look at "The Heart Stopper" in action, and really must be seen.
