About the author (2006)

Not since Lon Chaney has one individual created so many icons for the silver screen. From the unstoppable Terminator to the extra-terrestrial monstrosities of Aliens and Predator, from the pioneering Jurassic Park dinosaurs to the inimitable Edward Scissorhands and the terrifying Pumpkinhead, four time Academy Award-winner Stan Winston was one of cinema's most innovative and accomplished character creators.
