Last year, a live-action short called Mortal Kombat: Re-Birth took the internet by storm. Now it's going to be a web series, and the first images look most enticing.

Well, as enticing as a spinal cord and a snowman can look. Both Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan are returning for the web series. It's quite different from the previous live action Mortal Kombat outings.

The first images also show Scorpin in full costume. It is a wide shot, however. "I think the super hardcore fans would be offended with a different shade of yellow for Scorpion," Tancharoen told Kotaku last February, "but I think the majority of fans liked it because it brought their favorite game back in a new light with all the violence that was always expected."

That spinal cord picture is a bit of a letdown.

It looks so fake... which of course makes sense because a real human spine can be a bit difficult to find for the shoots. But, I mean, it looks FAKE as in borrowed from an elemanty school's educational plastic skeleton and covered in some tomato sauce and tomato pulp. (Also, I think I can see a bolt sticking out from the ass end of that spine.) — THOSE were my initial thoughts upon seeing the picture! And I think the reaction that the film crew was going for was something more like, "BRUTALITY!!".

Unless of course this spine does in fact belong to a character who has plastic for bones, juice for blood and fruit for flesh. But I highly doubt it.

RULE NUMBER ONE of making splatter films: BLOOD IS RED! Blood is always, always either dark red or bright red. Blood will still be either dark red or bright red when it gets splattered on some snow. And blood has very little if any transparency. And that's because blood is thick and it has a high concentration of red blood cells that give it its colour. Blood will only turn into this thin, transparent juice if it's mixed with some transparent liquid.

Also, If you shoot close ups of bloody spines that have been torn out of a body and you want there to be chunks of meat stuck on the spine... Use raw meat. You can get that from pretty much any grocery store. Buy a couple of steaks or something and tear it up into smaller bits.

But don't fucking use fruit.

I've done enough cooking in my life that I don't need to look twice at that picture to be able to tell that it's covered in crushed tomatos.
