Movie Monsters: Vermithrax Pejorative!

Vermithrax.jpg

Absolutely one of the most magnificent movie creatures ever to grace the silver screen; a marvel in design and special effects, Vermithrax Pejorative, the mean momma antagonist of the movie Dragonslayer, reigns supreme in my book for making be believe dragons could be real as a kid. The special effects were created at Industrial Light and Magic, where Phil Tippett had co-developed an animation technique called go motion for The Empire Strikes Back . Super kudos to Tippet and his team; when I taped this off of cable TV later on, I watched and rewatched the climactic scene around the underground lake of fire so many times I wore my tape out.
