Here’s the official description:

HBO’s cult horror favorite “True Blood” took the vampire craze by storm, with 12 million viewers at its peak and a blood-hungry fan following, and Zoic Studios was along for the ride from the dawn. From gushing facial wounds, flying decapitated heads, massive explosions, fiery slow motion attacks, gruesome disintegrating bodies, and of course—an infinite bounty of blood in every fashion imaginable. Coming on board for the pilot and continuing through the series’ finale in 2014, the Zoic team delivered a scintillating supply of ghastly effects that will leave their mark long after the last vampire bite.
