A complete guide to modern monster make-up special effects. Arranged chronologically, "Behind the Mask" takes the reader from the work of Dick Smith ("The Exorcist") and the "Star Wars" phenomenon in the 1970s, to the world of computer-generated special effects in the 1990s. Featuring interviews with artists and behind-the-scenes photographs, sketches and storyboards, the book reveals the special effects make-up techniques of such films as "The Howling", "The Thing", "Alien", "Gremlins", "ET", "Terminator 2", "Batman Returns" and Spielberg's latest film, "Jurassic Park". The book includes a full bibliography, as well as a list of useful addresses and a glossary of special effects terms.

I picked this book up now because a year or so ago at the age of 30 I decided to say "what the hey" and have been collecting anything and everything I could to do with becoming a special effects make up artist ever since. This book was kind of far down my list because frankly no one ever recommended it and I am glad that I waited and picked it up used. That isn't to say that it is a bad book by any means, it was interesting and informative in terms of the make up artists themselves but much like the book "Scare Tactics" by John Russo it is largely anecdotal and not instructional.
There are some excellent behind the scenes pictures in here and a few interesting facts but you should know before buying that it does not contain the "Secrets" it claims on the cover. I think that the biggest thing that I discovered reading this book was how connected the five guys explored in it are. I mean, Dick Smith mentored Rick Baker who in turn mentored two of the other three - Rob Bottin and Steve Johnson. Then Stan Winston, whilst he didn't "apprentice" under Baker they did work together and he did learn from him.
In summation this is an interesting book about the men who make the magic but it has little about their art.
