RIP Brock Winkless

1959 (?) - 2015

Normally, I do not talk about many of the men behind the scenes and for the most part, that is a damn shame because they are as much of the film as anyone else. Today, we mourn one of the best who could work behind the camera, even when not in charge in Brock Winkless, who sadly passed away on July 18 of complications from a debilitating neurological condition that caused him rising levels of discomfort and lack of muscular control for more than 15 years. He worked on such classics as Terminator 2: Judgement Day, many of the Tales From The Crypt episodes, and of course Child's Play. In fact, he was the puppeteer for Chucky until Seed of Chucky, when the disorder caused him to no longer be able to do it. So of course, he was the guy with his hand up the puppet's ass in...

So to one of the best guys who had the very unheralded task of just being the guy who was the puppeteer, we will mourn your loss.
