Join us this week as we take a look at thirteen of the best practical effects movers and shakers in horror films. The Monster Movie Podcast hosts explore films such as John Carpenter's The Thing, An American Werewolf in London and The Exorcist. The podcast is a ninety minute discussion about the best effects on film, what went into making them, the effects artist behind them and the future of practical effects in horror films.
Horror News Radio co-host and co-managing editor of OneofUs.net, Thomas Mariani sits down with Doc to list out their top 13 practical effects in horror films. The pair are joined by camera operator Alan G. Kelly and NC film maker Bill Mulligan to discuss some horror history's best practical effects and effects artists such as Dick Smith, Rick Baker, Chris Walas, Tom Savini, Rob Bottin and more. As with any top list, many favorites or equally top notch entries are left off as evidence by the many other films discussed along the way and then toward the end of the show. For example, Thomas drops the incredible effects displayed for Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors (1986).
