The Beast Honors: Stan Winston

The great special effects master Stan Winston is dead at age 62. As you know, horror movies are dear to my heart and one of the aspects of horror that fans crave are the special effects, the monsters, the things that go bump in the night. Winston was a 4 time academy award winner and whether you know it or not, you have been impressed with his work. He was responsible for the cyborg killers in Terminator, the alien queen in Aliens, the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, and the creature in Predator. His work goes right up to the current super-blockbuster Iron Man where he created the suits for Tony Stark and the villain. I loved his work on the underrated "Monster Squad." The movie industry has lost a giant.
