Carlo Rambaldi RIP

Carlo Rambaldi, the special effects expert who is most famous for creating ET, but who also worked with Argento in Deep Red and Fulci in A Lizard in a Woman's Skin amongst others has died.

My favourite example of his work comes from the Fulci film, in the form of the Francis Bacon-style vivisected dogs. Rambaldi and Fulci reputedly had to produce the effect in court to show that they had not used real animals.
