Really heartbreaking news coming in as I’ve just gotten off the phone with someone very close to special effects make-up artist John Vulich. Sadly, Vulich passed away in his sleep early this morning at age 55. No cause of death is available at this time, but we’ll update you when we know.
Vulich worked on some of the horror genre’s most classic films and TV shows such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead, The Dark Half, Castle Freak, From Beyond, Ghoulies, Dolls, TerrorVision, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, The Lost Boys, Two Evil Eyes, “The X-Files,” “Angel,” and “Werewolf: The Series” and was one of the founders of Optic Nerve Studios.
John was one of the good guys, and it’s nothing short of tragic to lose such a talent at such an early age. We here at Dread Central would like to offer our sincerest of condolences to John’s friends, family members, and constituents. Rest easy, sir. You will be severely missed.
