It’s always a sad time when we lose someone from the horror community. You may not recognize the name, but John Vulich will forever be remembered by his body of work in the genre. Working under Tom Savini, he created special effects for Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) and Day of the Dead (1985). His other credits include Ghoulies (1984), Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986), The Lost Boys (1987), and Night of the Living Dead (1990) just to name a few. He is also known for working with the special effects crew for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series (1997) and Angel (2000). His work in television was well received and helped him win 3 Primetime Emmys.
Though he is gone, the films he has left his imprint on will last forever. Ensuring his life’s hard work for our genre will never be forgotten.
