We live in an era in which spectacular movie monsters tend to live on hard drives, so it's always heartening to see footage of practical effect artists just building the damn creatures. This video comes to us from the production of Alien 3 twenty years ago — watch as the film's crew makes sculptor Steve Norrington's dog-like "Bambi Burster" ambulate. And for more cinematic beasts hanging out, see Bolaji Badejo in his xenomorph costume and the Jurassic Park reptiles sans camera rolling.
