Laird Henderson of Big Trubble Toys created this incredibly awesome figure called the Ghost Pig. Once a pig and then a juicy ham, he’s a porcine phantom rising from between the salty, smoky slices of someone’s dinner toward another plane of existence or perhaps to haunt your pantry.
“You may eat his flesh, but you can’t consume his soul. The pig is released from his corporeal body just before the first bites are taken. He’s now free to explore the spirit world and haunt his tormentors for years to come.”
Ray Harryhausen, the man who pioneered the use of stop-motion special effects in Hollywood, has died at the age of 92, his family announced on Tuesday. In an era before CGI, Harryhausen used clay monsters and mythical creatures to bring life to live-action adventure films like Clash of the Titans, Valley of the Gwangi and Jason and the Argonauts. He inspired the likes of John Landis, Stephen Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Tim Burton and Guillermo Del Toro, and was awarded both a Bafta and a special Academy Award for his work
