I came across this sweet little 10 minute video of some behind-the-scenes footage for MGM’s CHILD’S PLAY on YouTube. Within, you’ll find discussions with such luminaries as special effects makeup artist and “Godfather Of Gore” Tom Savini along with creator/writer Don Mancini, as they talk about the film that spawned the Child’s Play franchise. One of the best parts about the video, however, is the part where the special effects team displays the creation of the Chucky doll itself. Check it out!

CHECK OUT THIS BEHIND THE SCENES CREATION VIDEO OF THE CHESTBURSTER FROM ALIEN

From Amanda Kooser at CNet:

Few images in film are as startling as that moment in “Alien” when the baby chestburster comes crawling out of of John Hurt’s torso in a spray of gore. It was so gripping, the slimy little parasite was brought back for the sequel, “Aliens.” Even better, it was created without the assistance of CGI.

A video shared by the Stan Winston School of Character Arts lets us all in on how that nasty little surprise was created. The video is narrated by Stephen Norrington, the special-effects wiz who built the device. He started with dental acrylic poured into a mold of the monster, cut it into pieces using a bandsaw, and held it all together with a cable-housing spine.
