Description And Comments
The Horror Make-up Show is a humorous, brief look at how basic monster movie special effects are done. The show includes on-stage demonstrations of effects such as blood-spurting fake knives and rubber limbs, and how mechanical effects are combined with rubber masks to transform human heads into wolf-shaped skulls. Film clips are interspersed throughout the presentation, showing how computer-generated special effects are blended into live action films.
This may be Universalâ€™s most entertaining live show. While thereâ€™s plenty of fake blood thrown around, the script is much more funny than scary. The hosts keep everything moving along at a fast pace, and their running commentary about horror-film moviemaking is interspersed with plenty of pop culture jokes for the kids.
- This attraction participates in Universal Express.
Most children should be able to watch the show without being frightened, but sit in the very back of the theater if thereâ€™s any doubt.
Itâ€™s the exception that proves the rule, as this reader relates:
My 7- and 9-year-olds had no problem with Terminator but were scared by the Horror Make-Up Show (despite my telling them the guy really was not cutting anyoneâ€™s arm off!). We ended up leaving before the show was over.
