Horror FX Take Spotlight in Nerdist Web Series, Scott Ian Hosts

Fans of practical FX can relish an all-new show geared just for them.  Horror movie fans will finally have an insider’s look at the world of special FX makeup with the help of Fangoria and Nerdist Industries.

The two companies are coming together for a DIY make-up series to the newly launched Nerdist Channel on YouTube (www.youtube.com/nerdist). Horror genre fanatic and Anthrax founder and rhythm guitarist Scott Ian will navigate the viewer’s experience. Reknowned masters of gore will teach viewers how to create horror FX makeup that is simply to die for. 

“I’ve been neck-deep in blood and guts for the last 30 years playing in Anthrax,” states Scott Ian, “so I couldn’t be more excited to be hosting a show called ‘Blood & Guts’ for you horror and metal fans.”

The Nerdist Channel, a YouTube original content channel, launched on April 2, 2012 with nerd-centric content spanning comic books, video games, movies, pop culture and more. Shows on the channel feature well-known talent such as Neil Patrick Harris, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Rob Zombie, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Harry Knowles and the Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick.
