I take these rigs to every set. Everyone gets excited to see exploding blood! Plus, using these pneumatic rigs, there's also no worrying about gun powder safety that you'd encounter with traditional squibs!

Thanks for the quick turn around and the awesome rig. We used it as a back hit shot in profile. It looked great! A one and done set up. Gratitude.

I used The Tarantino rig for Crispin Glover for a film in Prague. Crispin was extremely happy with the device. I wish I could catch the look on his face with the first headshot. He was like a kid on Christmas. Also Jim Kunz from Grindhouse was there too, he seemed to enjoy it as well. Made my job a million times easier!

Autumn Cook Face Off, Season 4

We shoot films out of Ohio all the time and we were looking for something that would give us that spray of blood when a victim is shot, this seriously blew us away!

Scott Smith Executive Producer

Don't look no further, this is going to give you what you want. Legit took my shitty short to a whole nother level without any struggle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Amelia Rogers Producers

This product changed the game for our performances. If you want the look that squibs play in our daily lives shooting action films, this gave us full range and saved us so much money.
