Special Effects Make-up and Props

Award winning practical FX studio in Hamilton, Ontario. Specializing in horror and creature make-up FX and props for film productions of any budget.

Special Effects are our passion, and we know we’re not the only ones. Many filmmakers won’t settle for anything less than gut wrenching practical special effects make-up and props, or want to get the best of both worlds by combining practical with digital FX.
We love pushing the boundaries of your imagination and making on screen magic happen for short and feature films. Whether it’s horror effects or anatomically correct trauma injuries, original creatures or realistic prop replicas, or blood FX of any kind, we can help you out.
Our artists are professional and mindful of what you want, what works for your shot and what is safe and comfortable for your actors.

Locked in the Cellar is making a movie!! The short film “Dungeon of Death” is based on our interactive photo op with the same name. It is a horror comedy written and produced by our own DesirĂ©e Van De Laar and directed by Brian Rowe. Aside from a shitload of toe curling FX, it also has engaging characters and a surprising story.
The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has officially ended, but it’s still possible to donate and get perks by sending your eTransfers to info@lockedinthecellar.ca.
