horror: the Buffyverse – various demons

Various demons from the Buffyverse

As one of its legacies, Buffy changed the way we expected screen vampires to look. But although vampires were the main enemy in Buffy there were also a significant number of demons – and cases of demonic possession – around, and in Angel demons became the main enemy.

Of course, not all supernatural beings – or even all demons – in the Buffyverse were evil.

The vampire designs evolved from concepts designs created by the Burman Studios. Until 2002 Harlow FX created the makeup effects with Todd McIntosh as makeup supervisor. Robert Hall (Almost Human) was then (seasons 6 & 7) in charge of the makeup effects with Dayne Johnson as makeup supervisor.

The demons

Vakma of the Gathwok Clan: Vakma (Susan Blommaert) was a Pylean peasant who appears in the Angel episode ‘Over the Rainbow’.

Pylean Deathwok Demon (Angel): Barney Burman did the makeup for this resident of the Host’s world (Don’t you just think Lorne deserved his own series?) on Amber Minney. (Angel season 2)
