In Remembrance of Stan Winston



Stan Winston died on two days ago, on June 15, 2008. he was born on April 7, 1946 (age 62). he passed away of multiple myeloma (it is a type of cancer to plasma cells). An FX master, his passing away is truly sad one for fellow horror and sci-fi fans. The made some of the most memorable creatures to ever hit the big screen.

To me his best work can be seeing in films such as the Monster Squad , The Terminator films, Jurassic park , Predator 1 & 2 , most recently Iron Man , and countless others. Perhaps, his finest moment was the amazing Alien Queen from Aliens.

He also directed cult fav Pumpkinhead , as well as produced gore series Wrong Turn I & II . He, of course, did the FX for of these films, as well. He will be greatly missed by all lovers of monsters, the horrific, the fantastic, the amazing, the out of this world, and the gory. God bless him and may he RIP.
