Throat Slit Effect

This video is for Nikki, so she can see what getting her throat slit looks like from the audience’s point of view. We aren’t using this special effect technique, so it won’t look exactly like this in performance, but it should give a good general idea. Also, since Nikki pretty much can’t stand horror movies, this is a nice, non-scary way to check it all out. The whole video is pretty interesting, but if you just want to see the effect in action, skip ahead to minute 8.

 

For a slit throat in action, see this clip from Scream, starting at about 2:40…
