Introduction: How To: Rip a Heart Out of Someones Chest

If you've seen "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom 'you'll know one of the greatest special effects of the film is where Mola Ram rips the heart out of someone's chest. In this intstructable Indy Mogulshows you how to create the effect, with only $10. Don't forget to check out our previous episode on how to create a fake heart..

Check out the video!



You Will Need:

1. old pillow

2. old plastic food container

3. aluminum foil

4. 16oz fake blood

5. Red Spray Paint

6. old shirt

7. duct tape

8. Hot Glue Gun

9. fake heart (or a potato)

Step 1: The Potato Heart

In this episode we used a peeled potato for a heart. In a previous episode of Indy Mogul, we created a more realistic heartusing pumps and balloons. But this a good alternative.

Take the Potato and peel off all of the skin. Next shape the potato into a rough heart-like shape. Next Spray the Potato with red spray paint.

Fill the old plastic food container with 16oz of fake blood, and put the potato inside.

Next, lay hot glue around the outside of the container, and place the aluminum foil on top. Make sure you secure the foil, so that no blood drips out of it when it is turned sideways. Then cut off the excess foil.

Step 2: The Chest

Using the duct tape, mold the pillow into a chest shape (we tightened the pillow, using two long pieces of tape, about 3/4 of the way up).

Next, trace the shape of the plastic container, and mark it with the duct tape.

Cut the container's shape out of the pillow, and pull out the stuffing for that area only.

Place the container into the pillow, and secure it by adding some more duct tape around the edges of the container.

Prop your pillow dummy vertically, and clothe it with the old shirt.

Then dig in!

Seconded!

I thought I was the only one who felt that way and quit saying so after being mocked and ridiculed by society.

I say it now, though.... Temple of Doom was lame.

to really rip someone's heart out you need to either use a palm strike or a punch to break through the sternum than use karates spear fingers or kung fu's tiger claw to get through the shards and then just hook and pull

Shrek: For your information, there's a lot more to ogres than people think.
Donkey: Example?
Shrek: Example? Okay, um...ogres...are...like onions!
Donkey: -sniffs onion- They stink?
Shrek: Yes...no!
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry.
Shrek: No!
Donkey: Oh, you leave them out in the sun and they get all brown and start sproutin' little white hairs.
Shrek: NO! LAYERS! Onions have layers. OGRES have layers. Onions have layers...you get it. We both have layers.
Donkey: Oh, you both have layers. -sniffs onion again and winces- You know, not everybody else likes onions. -pause- CAKES! Everybody loves cakes! Cakes have layers!
Shrek: -restraining temper- I don't care...what everyone likes. Ogres are not like cakes!
Donkey: You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, "Hey, let's get some parfait," they say, "I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious.
Shrek: NO!!! YOU DENSE, IRRITATING, MINIATURE BEAST OF BURDEN! Ogres are like onions! End of story! Bye-bye! -whispers- See you later!
-walks away-
Donkey: Parfaits may probably be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!
Shrek: You know...I think I preferred you humming!
