Special Affect: A Love Song To Rob Bottin

Allison Goertz is back with an ode to one of the great masters of practical FX, Rob Bottin.

Rob Bottin has been MIA for about ten years now. His last film work was 2002's Serving Sara, not quite the fitting capper for a career that includes the masterful FX in movies like The ThingRobocop and The Howling. His slime and air bladders and blood profoundly impacted generations of gorehounds, and we miss him dearly.

Allison Goertz, who writes songs about things she loves (many of which are very geeky), has written a song for Rob. In this sweet ballad she pines away for the missing gore guru. How can you make Allison so sad, Rob? Come back to us.
