There aren't many perks to being a horror sophisticate living in Connecticut, but by gum, I've found one of 'em. Seems that the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport has kicked off a special exhibit entitled "How to Make a Monster". Specifically, it is an exhibit of the animatronics work of lesser-known special effects master John Cox, whose company Robotechnology (heh heh, cool name) is responsible for such beasties as the killer croc in Rogue, and the new age kaiju in the Korean mega-hit The Host (a.k.a. Gwoemul).
The Discovery Museum will be holding a "champagne celebration" to launch the exhibition, and as a member, I plan on dusting off my top hat, white tie and tails to attend. Expect a full report. I'm especially looking forward to inspecting the go-go gadget arms Cox created for Inspecter Gadget 2: Direct to Video.
