Movie Monster Maker Dies

Monday, June 16, 2008
Sadly, Stan Winston has lost his battle with cancer. Sure we hear all the time about "industry" folk who've passed on, we remember them with a smile and then move on with our lives. Stan Winston, however, was responsible for some of the coolest creatures in movie history. Who am I talking about? Winston was the genius behind the creature from Aliens, Predator, Terminator 2, The Thing, Leviathan... I don't think I'm wrong in saying he is a legend in special effects/makeup.

I had thought he was also responsible for Pumpkinhead but he co-wrote the story.

Rest well Stan.
