Today In Geekdom: RIP Carlo Rambaldi – Creator Of E.T. And Alienon August 11, 2012 at 11:29 am
Sure he created E.T. Big whoop. If you want to talk about a lasting cultural icon, the Xenomorph is one of the all time greats. They’re fast. They’re stealthy. They run on walls and ceilings. The either eat you or knock you up with a nasty little parasite that bursts out of your chest. They have acid for blood. The face hugger is the stuff of nightmares. FFS! Just the TEST footage was creepy as hell!
E.T. was a dumpy little shrimp with a flashlight for a finger. Game over, man! Game over!!
Rambaldi was 86.
