Stan Winston RIP

Stan Winston was probably involved with more movies I've watched than anybody in cinema history, except perhaps Klaus Kinski (including the recently reviewed MONSTER SQUAD).

Sadly, news comes that Winston died last night. Everybody will mention his Oscar-winning effects work on JURASSIC PARK, TERMINATOR 2 and ALIENS but let's not forget about the trashier entries on his resume including FRIDAY THE 13TH: PART III, THE THING, DEAD & BURIED, THE HAND, THE EXTERMINATOR, DRACULA'S DOG, MANSION OF THE DOOMED, GET CHRISTIE LOVE!, GARGOYLES, MANIMAL, LEVIATHAN, PUMPKINHEAD, PARASITE and the legendary STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

Hats off to Stan.
