    [THIS POST CONTAINS GAME OF THRONES SEASON 6 SPOILERS]

    HBO's Game of Thrones is a dark and violent show. There have been numerous death scenes and violent sequences over the show's six seasons so far, some of which have been brutal to watch.

    Now, the company that did the effects work for Season 6, including the death of Ramsay Bolton, has revealed it wanted to make his death-by-dog scene even more gory than it already was.



    "They shot the scene with multiple takes," Mat Krentz, a visual effects supervisor for Image Engine told Variety. "They did a pass of the dog on green screen, then Ramsay on green screen, and then we also had a background plate, which we put together."

    The team made a CG jaw for Bolton and animated a sequence that showed the flesh ripping between the character's skin and gums. Apparently, this was deemed too shocking, and it was scaled back to what was shown in the episode.

    Be sure to read the full Variety story to learn more about how Image Engine made the death sequences in Season 6. One interesting thing to note that the team used real meat, the kind you would find in a grocery store, to simulate things like a character getting their head smashed against a wall or when a character had their hand ripped apart.

    Watch the video above to see some of the work Image Engine did for Game of Thrones Season 6.

    Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere later than usual; rather than April, it'll instead debut sometime during the summer of 2017. It'll be shorter than past seasons, too, running only seven episodes. The first Season 7 teaser was released during San Diego Comic-Con and can be seen here. In other news about Season 7, HBO recently confirmed that Harry Potter actor Jim Broadbent will play a "significant" role in the season.

    Only one more season is planned after Season 7. This may not be end the of Game of Thrones altogether, however, as the show's creators have talked about possible spinoffs.
