Here's a bunch of different effects we did for Bereavement- the prequel to Malevolence. Unfortunately, a lot of this stuff never made the final cut! And the stuff that did make the final cut... I don't have photos of.

If you haven't seen the movie... SPOILER ALERT!

We were going to make a fake hand for young Martin, but we wanted to see his fingers moving during the scene, so we went with the trick-knife solution...

For Sutter sticking needles into his hand, we did go with a prosthetic hand. We cast this in Platsil Gel 10 with some deadener, straight into alginate and painted with Dow silicone paint. The hand was also going to double as a severed hand in a later wide-shot, hence the gore at the wrist, but that was nixed in pre-pro.

We built all kinds of stunt weapons for Bereavement... bleeding knives, rubber & retractable knives and a functional booby-trap axe rig with real & rubber axe head.

We also built a bunch of stomach prosthetics for the various murders that Sutter commits. Here's the stomach and chest we built for Allison's demise. I cast this in Platsil Gel 10 with deadener, straight into the alginate mold of Alexandra Daddario. It was then backed up with 5 lb. expandable urethane foam. The torso had blood bags installed, so when a knife was plunged in... well, you know! The wooden handles on the top and bottom of the torso are attached to dowels that were encased inside the foam. This was so we could puppeteer the torso a bit to give it movement. It looked pretty awesome on set, though it only ends up in the film for about a millisecond!

For the burning house finale, we built an exact 1/12 scale duplicate of the original house and burned specific parts with a miniature fire formula. Except for the wood addition, the whole house was built as patterns, then molded in silicone and cast in dental stone, so it wouldn't really burn. The whole model took about a month to build and a half day to shoot. But again, this shot only lasts for a brief moment in the final cut!

Here's the rig for the scene where Sutter pours boiling water on his hand. Two vinyl hoses... one for an air compressor to make the water bubble; the other hose attached to an oil cracker to make some steam. On-set, Jeff ran the hose up his back and through his shirt sleeve.

Here are the hand & torso prosthetics out of the mold and before painting. Note to self & others... when casting silicone into alginate, always make sure the alginate is DRY before pouring in the silicone!! You can see how the hand has a gloss to it. I thought the alginate was good & dry, but it still had enough water in it to cause that shine! This is the first (and hopefully last) time this ever happened to me. Not too big a deal... I remember we had to matte it down on set.

For the house model, here are the patterns for the windows, built from basswood and styrene, and the pattern for the walls. The siding was Canson board pieces, cut & glued one by one to MDF sheet. These patterns were all molded in MoldMax and then everything was cast in white dental stone and then assembled & painted.

Here's Jeff Cox and I putting the house together...

The house had to be on fire in the scene but, since we were doing retakes, we couldn't actually have the house burn. So, the windows had little built-in metal containers which we filled with miniature fire powder; we would ignite that on ACTION and this is what actually burned, not the plaster house.

Finally, Jeff Cox gives the model house some sort of blessing before we burn it up...

Обожаю такие экскурсы в прикладную науку. Тема с ножом на столе очень понравилась - это же можно сидеть и аккуратно его "в руке" раскачивать... Брр
