The Relic Monster

The monster for 'The Relic' was designed by Crash McCreery and was ultimately realized as a performer worn suit with animatronic facial articulation. I was part of the talented group that sculpted, molded, and then fabricated and finished the nearly 20 foot long behemoth for STAN WINSTON STUDIO.

As production wound down, director Peter Hyams decided that he needed to show the monster blown to pieces by an explosion to convince the audience that it had died,so I quickly constructed this ribcage as monster remains for the film's climax.
