it came from the GALLERY!!!

In the Valley of Gwanjii...frickin' cool things happen!The online gallery of Ray Harryhausen creatures at ChineseJetPilot, that is.

If you spent your childhood locked in a Belgian basement as the sex slave of a roving frites merchant, you will need to be informed that Ray Harryhausen was and remains the greatest practitioner of stop-motion creature animation in the history of film.

This is not as cineaste-nerdy as it sounds. Harryhausen was, in fact, frickin’ cool. His Eohippus, for instance, from the immortal classic The Valley of Gwanjii, is still capable of making the little children cry.

And some of the big ones, too.

But of this, we must not speak.

We must, instead, direct you to this exhaustive index of the entire Harryhausen menagerie, with bonus Quicktime video snippets from the films in which they appeared. Frankly, if you prefer Allosaurs to Anistons, this is website totally stomps that lame old Oscars website.

  1. This is mad wicked. I’ve always loved Brontosaurus!

    And I’ve always had a weakness for Belgian frites. Being locked up by a merchant doesn’t sound like a bad predicament.

    Pass the andalouse sauce, please! I think I know where I’m eating Sat night. Thanks, RC, you are so helpful!
