More Gore!

victim man

America’s Scariest Home Haunts has a new episode called “Gore Galore” and they paid me a visit in the shop to talk about guts, butcher shops, sheep’s hearts, and what’s the best thing to use for painting blood splatters. There’s also lots of fun footage from inside haunts where people get live autopsies, covered in maggots, and beaten in cages.


Remember, there’s a new episode everyday, so to see my interview check out Gore Galore

Dead Clowns put the "Fun" in Funeral

Laffy Pants Headstone 2011

Ever wonder what clues there were that Pogo the Clown (John Wayne Gacy) went off the deep end? Find out the ins and outs of killer clowns in my interview in the “Killer Clown Compilation”. There’s a new episode every day, so be sure to click on the killer clown one.

Because you can’t spell “slaughter” without “laughter”

Models in Straight Jackets

Models in Straight Jackets

In the words of the PA in charge of returning the 12 straight jackets to my shop, “I don’t know if you like watching sexy girls getting tied up, but if you do, this is the episode for you.”

It’s the episode of “America’s Next Top Model” called “The Girls Go Rock Climbing,” but should be called “The Girls get tied up in straight jackets first,” because really, that’s the part everyone is talking about.

It’s this weeks episode. Check local listings for ANTM on the CW.

The straight jackets are authentic medical straight jackets, the only kind still manufactured for use in mental institutions, prisons, and hospitals. They’re 8 pounds of sail grade canvas, heavy steel and leather. Everything else is a costume straight jacket.
We rent them for $50 per week and sell them for $250.

The blood is mine, but who's The Cleaner?

The blood is mine, but who's The Cleaner?

There’s a lot of blood in Samuel L Jackson’s new pic, The Cleaner, and it’s all mine. Watch the trailer here, and take a shot every time they show my blood. I did.

We created a new kind of blood just for the movie, and dubbed it
“BJ Winslow’s EZ Clean Wet & Dry Blood” It’s specially formulated to be a very realistic dark red while wet, and to darken and “brown out” as it drys, just like actual blood. We also made it one of the easiest stage bloods to clean off of sets, props, and actors. Perfect for a movie about a guy who goes into crime scenes full of dry blood, and has to wash the joint up.

Release date is still to be announced. Sometime this winter.

Universal Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Horror Vintage Morgue

Halloween is well into it’s fourth month here at the shop, which probably means the rest of the world is just starting to get into it. Once again I reccomend Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. They got a lot of their props at my shop including a beautiful custom angel of death prop
No sneak peeks yet! But here’s a scene we did last year – a morgue, done with authentic hundred year old autopsy tables, embalming pumps, and cabinets.
