RIP: Stan Winston April 7th, 1946 – June 15th, 2008

winston - RIP: Stan Winston April 7th, 1946 - June 15th, 2008We’ve been hearing for a while that effects maven Stan Winston was in bad health, but this is still incredibly shocking. On June 15th, 2008, Stan Winston passed away at the age of 62.

Over his long career, Winston was responsible for more movie monsters than I can even name right now, but Predator, The Terminator, Aliens, Pumpkinhead, The Monster Squad and Jurassic Park were just a few of the film his work was featured in. In addition to visual effects, sculpting and creating unforgettable monsters, Winston was also a director, writer and producer.

He will be greatly missed by fans all over the world. Rest in Peace, good sir.
