Re: New Stuff


Part 7 is about a teen girl with telekinetic powers-we learn too much about this girl during this movie. The girl's friends are assholes, and there is one boy she likes very much. In this film, Jason is resurrected and begins to kill with no motive. The movie's ending sucks, too.

I purchased Scream Greats on VHS several years ago.

Laserdiscs are outdated. Possibly beginning in the mid-1980's, these discs were being sold in America. When I was much younger I saw one; it was HUGE: roughly 1/3 meter wide(12 inches). The laserdisc was considered better than VHS, but very few people bought them, so these discs were expensive. Companies decided to release laserdiscs with commentary tracks. A Dawn laserdisc was released with commentary by George and Chris Romero.

Re: New Stuff


In Scream Greats they also show how Savini made all those splatters. Still I'm wondering how they would do that because last week I tried it out with a balloon filled with fake blood. I bind to a fire cracker. How tide I made it the blood didn't splattered really far. How would Savini have done this? He must have used really heavy explosives. Isn't that dangerous?

Re: New Stuff


I think Savini uses the same charges that detonate air bags in automobiles. In Scream Greats, he is shown placing a tiny capsule(this is the explosive) onto a peice of metal. The metal protects the actor; this focuses the blast away from him/her. Savini has said that sometimes accidents happened. He mentioned an occasion in which a splatter was done, and hot blood hit an actor. Firecrackers are built to contain their explosive force-these won't make good splatter. There is an air-bag factory in my town. Perhaps I will attempt to get some of these explosive charges and make a few splatters-if I do this, I will post the results.

Re: New Stuff


Hot blood hit the actor? Was this in Dawn or in Day? And was the scene edited out? Maybe it was still a good scene. In Day when Steel shot the man in the green suit you saw blood came over his shoulder but in fact this isn't possible because if blood splatters from the back of your head it's impossible it can come over your shoulder. Another thing: Steel was firing with a normal handgun but I heard the gauge is not good enough to let the bullets come out through the back of the head.

Firecrackers are OK. If you just put a piece of wood behind the actor and put the firecracker behind the piece of wood and give the actor something to put in his ears for the sound it will work.

If I remember correctly, Savini did not say when the mishap ocurred. He may have said that this happened while making a zombie movie. He said that he used real animal intestines for Rhodes' death scene in Day. The movie showed behind-the-scenes footage of this. There is also footage of Savini jumping off of the balcony in Dawn, and he says "I got hurt on that one". No scenes of TCM part 2 were included.

A gun shot is a strange thing. I have heard that bullets ricochet when they hit something hard, like a skull. When bullets are fired from a gun, they spin, and when they hit something, they change shape. Perhaps Steel's bullets were .44 or .45 calibre. I have fired a Ruger .45 calibre pistol several times. I shot an old furnace. The holes were large enough that I could poke a finger through them. I believe a .45 bullet could travel straight through a human head, because other than the skull, nothing could stop it. There are also different bullet types-for instance, certain bullets are made to pierce armor. I am not sure if splatters happen in real life.

I believe your firecrackers are stronger than mine.

Re: New Stuff


I've heard that there are scenes on Scream Greats which are from Friday the 13th part 2 and 3 while Savini haven't even worked on these titles.

Yesterday I saw a picture of a scene of TCM 2: a chainsaw hits a head and the head gets crushed, very cool and well made scene.

If you fires a gun, is this cool? What about the bang? Is it loud? Can you compare it with fire crackers? Another thing about guns: in Day otd you see use flames come of the gun but is this also in real life or do you only see some smoke? And does a gun gives a kick back when you fire with it? Splatters may happen but I'm not thinking they are like this big:

Re: New Stuff


Yes, scenes of Friday the 13th part 2 and 3 are included in Scream Greats. There are no scenes from part 1. I believe the people that made Scream Greats only used part 4 for their footage. Part 4 begins with murder scenes from parts 2 and 3. Scenes from TCM part 1 are in the movie, as well.

Guns are VERY loud. Firecrackers are not nearly as loud as this. It is recommended to use ear plugs as well as a muffling headset when firing a gun.

A gunshot is very fast, so you probably would not see fire. After the shot, there might be smoke, but this is more common after a gun has been shot many times in a short period, because the gun becomes very hot. A 22 calibre gun does not kick back enough to notice, and a 45 calibre gun kicks somewhat. Long bullets, such as magnums, fire with more force and are very difficult to aim at a target. A 12-guage shotgun kicks very much. I have decided never to hold one of these guns against my shoulder for aiming, because it hurts when the gun is fired.

Re: New Stuff


Have you ever fired a shotgun? Is it possible to blow someones whole head off with this weapon, like you see in Dawn? What's exactly the purpose of a shotgun? With a machine gun you can hit more targets, but with a shotgun you can only hit one target very good but police can better use handguns, with a handgun you will stop someone if you hit him but the chance this person will survive is much bigger than when you shot someone with a shotgun. If you hit him with a shotgun it's almost sure he's dead.

Are M-16s allowed for civilians or is this weapon only allowed for police and military?

Re: New Stuff


Police do not use shotguns very much. A shotgun does not have to be aimed as much as a handgun, because a shotgun blast spreads. This make it a good choice in certain situations.

Savini's death scene in Maniac seems very real. The back of his head is not destroyed. It is very gory. Savini did this effect by filling a fake head with food, blood, and other things. Then he shoots the head with a shotgun, through the car's windshield. On the DVD commentary track, he says that the shotgun blast pushed him off of the car-you can see this movement in the background during the scene.

I have a .410 shotgun, but I have also fired a .12 guage shotgun. I have considered trying an effect like Savini's death scene in Maniac. To do this, I would have to build a fake head and fill it with blood and gore, then shoot it with a .12 guage shotgun.

I do not know if civilians are allowed to carry M-16's. I may be wrong-I believe the rule is that civilians cannot have automatic firing weapons. Legal guns that are changed to auto-fire are not legal.

Re: New Stuff


Is it normal if you walk with your shotgun over street or are those things more for in the backyard? I don't really know much of guns, what's the difference between a .410 shotgun and a .12 gauge shotgun? And does there also exist a .11 gauge shotgun or a .411 shotgun or does those numbers gives you information about the types of bullets?

I'm wondering about this: if you kill someone by shooting him because he was burglaring in your house, is this a good reason for the police not prosecuting you? Sometimes people tells me: in the US it's normal to shoot first and ask questions later. Is this true?
