"Pumpkinhead" (1988), directed by Stan Winston, 90 minutes. Rated R. Despite a silly title that probably sent it to an early box office grave, it's a well-executed horror film about a man who calls upon satanic forces to help him avenge his son's death.

STAN WINSTON / MAKEUP ARTIST Creating mega-reptiles ("Jurassic Park") and scary monsters ("Aliens") has earned creature-master and makeup artist Stan Winston four Oscars. Winston, 53, worked more with minutiae for the namesake devices of "Inspector Gadget"--though he's got more scary stuff in the recently released "Lake Placid" and the upcoming "End of Days.' He's also inaugurating his own production company.

"Wrong Turn" suffers a fate similar to that of many other horror and supernatural thrillers released in the last decade: It leaves you with the feeling that you're watching an episode of "The X-Files," only Mulder and Scully never show up. In this case, the feeling is especially strong, as the movie closely recalls an episode called "Home," featuring the inbred Peacock brothers.

OVER the last 35 years, Stan Winston has helped create some of the most memorable creatures and effects in film and television history. His work as a makeup artist included designing the prostheses that turned Cicely Tyson into the 110-year-old Miss Jane Pittman. Expanding his range and scope, he moved from elaborate prosthetics to creature suits, miniatures, animatronic puppets and computer-generated images.
