Dapper Cadaver in Sun Valley News


“SUN VALLEY – Blocks of small industrial buildings – many of them vacant – line the strip of San Fernando Road across from the Bob Hope Airport.

The back of one of those shops, though, looks like it’s thriving.

Or is that writhing?

There are buckets of “human organs,” shelves of decomposing corpses, a warehouse of mounted skeletons and animal carcasses and a wall lined with coffins.”

Dapper Cadaver selected as one of LA’s Strangest Shops by LA Bizarro

A disemboweled human torso lies prostrate on a worktable, as the midday sunlight dances through the windows and hits a shelf lined with specimen jars, allowing their contents—daiphinized rat skeletons, fetal chicks, human lungs, and sheep’s eyeballs—to glisten softly against the brushed steel medical cabinetry. Utilitarian baker’s racks jammed with plastic tubs labeled “hands” “skulls,” and “legs & feet” are piled high with their respective—and bloody—contents, while morbid antiquities, roadkill, biological models, rotting skeletons, and “toe pinchers” (that’s coffin lingo), are found packed into every available corner, or in some cases, hang from metal hooks.

An Exclusive Video Tour Of Dapper Cadaver Prop Shop With Owner BJ Winslow

I recently had the opportunity to visit Dapper Cadaver, a movie prop shop in Sun Valley, California (a stones throw from Warner Brothers, Disney and Universal Studios) for an exclusive tour with owner BJ Winslow. They manufacture an incredibly diverse range of death-related props for film and television, especially for horror, sci-fi and crime shows, including The Devil’s Rejects, Silent Hill, Pushing Daisies, Twilight, 300, Law And Order, Night Of The Living Dead 3D, Criminal Minds, Saw III, Nip/Tuck, Pirates Of The Caribbean II, Dexter, No Country For Old Men and countless others. Dapper Cadaver is also open for sales and rentals to the public and I highly recommend you visit their shop if you are in the area. They also recently launched their website so you can order all of their props online as well.”
