Blood and Guts - With Scott Ian!!!!!

If you haven't heard of this web series yet, then you don't know what you're missing. But series 3 of "Blood and Guts", hosted by legendary guitarist Scott Ian from Anthrax, has just hit the 'Nerdist' channel on YouTube.
Scott, a longtime horror aficionado, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the all-time greatest practical effects artists create the gore and monsters that genre fans love.
The series differs from typical behind-the-scenes shows due to Ian's infectious excitement and curiosity, coupled with the clever ways the effects are integrated into each episode. Ian is often the one in the makeup chair, experiencing squibs, gore appliances and complex character makeups with rare enthusiasm.
Previous guests on the show included the likes of 7-time Academy Award winner Rick Baker, The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero and frequent Guillermo Del Toro collaborators Spectral Motion. Season 3 of Blood and Guts ups the ante with an original creature created by Joel Harlow exclusively for the series, unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the creation of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights and an episode with Tony Gardner that includes a surprise visit from a legendary horror character, reprised by the original actor.
