Gore

Gore

You want guts? You just want prone victims ripped to pieces, everything pulled out and thrown all over the place and the empty carcass spraying blood across every surface? No problem. Come on in.

With an abattoir and a half’s worth of viscera, ARROW’s GORE section has enough insides on the outside to turn even the most hardened horror hound green around the gills. With make-up effects from some of the best in the business and splatter from all over the world, if you can take it, we’re giving it.
