For a rare, almost unprecedented peek into the creation of a horror icon, the video below from the Stan Winston School of Creature FX is a must watch. Pumpkinhead: From Concept to Creation. It’s an absolutely stunning watch for fans of the 1980’s “vengeance demon” and practical FX moviemaking. It features interviews with Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alec Gillis (co-founders of Studio ADI), and Shane Mahan and John Rosengrant, co-founders of Legacy Effect, all of whom were integral to the process. It also sports some behind the scenes antics that will have you laughing out loud (dig Woodruff’s mullet!).
Set aside 10 minutes and immerse yourself in a bygone era; you’ll be glad you did!
