It’s not often that you see extremely bloody, gory practical effects utilized in movies at the level that director Joe Begos does in his grindhouse-inspired splatterfest VFW. The movie focuses on a battle royale that breaks out in the local VFW after a teen girl runs into the bar with a load of stolen drugs, looking for protection from a group of punks who are all hopped up on a drug called “Hype.” Leave it to veterans played by Stephen Lang, William Sadler, and more to use whatever they can to tear those bad guys apart.
VFW is an all-out war between the two sides that does not shy away from brutal deaths and endless amounts of blood. With the movie coming out on Blu-ray and DVD next week, /Film has an exclusive VFW featurette on the creation of the practical blood and make-up effects used in the movie. But beware, some of the effects are extremely gnarly and gross, so this one might be NSFW if you’re somehow still working in an office. Read More »
