He's been attacked by monsters of all shapes and sizes, gotten dismembered, beheaded, de-faced, and impaled by a living doll as part of his former video series for Nerdist. But that wasn't enough! He wasn't content to merely be the victim, or even the instigator, of horrific acts of movie magic; no, he wants to go deeper, and on his new series Bloodworks, that's exactly what he's going to do. Bloodworks will take viewers not only into the world of special effects makeup and monster model making, but he'll also show us creative people in their element expressing their love for such things. The best effects houses, the most passionate artists. And, yes, he'll probably get turned into a demon or lose a limb or two, but it wouldn't be a Scott Ian show if he didn't.
