Rest in peace, Carlo Rambaldi...
Carlo Rambaldi, a great artist and visionary has left us, and behind him is a fantastic career of special effects and creatures. Here above you see his (I guess, he's the only one credited on special effects) amazing Medusa from 1963's Perseo l'invincibile, one of many highlights and a great peplum.
I personally don't care of E.T, and prefer to remember him from this movie, Riccardo Freda's Tragic Ceremony, John Guillermin's King Kong, Dario Argeno's Deep Red, Mario Bava's Bay of Blood, Andrzej Zulawski's Possession and of course Vittorio Rambaldi's Primal Rage. Dune and Silver Bullet is good stuff to!
It was a fun ride, Carlo. Keep rocking.
