Read about Stan Winston's life making monster movies in this wikipedia article.
The first Stan Winston movie monsters I saw were the creepy winged beasts in the horror movie, Gargoyles.
His work on films such as Aliens, Predator, Pumpkinhead, Terminator and Jurassic Park brought a level of detail and craftsmanship rarely seen in the average cheesefest of monster movies from the 80's and 90's.
