Blade 2

The first collaboration between Tippett Studio and director Guillermo del Toro,

Blade 2 introduced horrifying aberrations known as Reapers – über-vampires with toothy, bloodsucking proboscises and an ability to crack open their jaws, transforming their entire faces into fleshy, blood-sucking vacuums.

Seamless face-replacement techniques scared the living daylights out of audiences worldwide.

Hordes of CG stunt doubles rounded out Tippett’s contribution to this horror touchstone.
