Make-Up Effects Masterclass is full of examples of the best, from the best. Films in the collection include icky gross-outs of Re-Animator and Bride of Re-Animator, the eye-popping and flesh-ripping effects of the classic Hellraiser series, and bucket loads more, as well as fantastic ARROW stories, packed with behind-the-scenes looks at these classics.
