"Evil Dank": How to Crush a Human Head, CHEAP

Awhile back, my friend Ty, and I were trying to create a special effect for our short film, "The Mass Murder". The idea we came up with was myself, crushing his head with a sledgehammer. We had to figure out how to do this, because we've never really done "fancy" special effects before. Thanks to Lloyd Kaufman's books and films, I finally found out how to do this, and I spent less than $10 on the whole gag. It's cheap, it looks cheap, but check it out.

Here's what you need: A cantaloupe, red jello, generic fake blood, red food coloring, and tissue paper.

How to construct: Grab the cantaloupe and cut a hole into it, maybe 2 inch radius. Don't take the guts out, but soften them up and scoop them around a bit. Grab the jello, fake blood, and extra food coloring, and mix into a bowl until the jello is completely mushy. Pour the mixture into the cantaloupe, mix it around to get all of the fruit guts mixed in there. Cap it, add a wig, and fucking PRESTO. Time to crush it!
