We forgot to let you know that last month Rick Baker, the man behind the FX of Thriller, released a nice 2 volumes book set about his work.

Rick Baker: Metamorphosis Vol 1: 1950 – 1989, Vol 2: 1990 – 2019 from Cameron Books is a gamechanger. It’s a celebration featuring never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photographs, as well as dozens of stories that elevate your favorite films beyond their already legendary status.

From An American Werewolf of London to Men in Black II , you will find everything that Baker did! Including “Thriller” with some unseen pictures of the make-up artistry.

Set at $250 a piece, the price is high for only few pages on “Thriller” but if you are a fan of Horror/FX movies, a must to have!


The definitive visual history of the thrilling make-up artistry of the legendary Rick Baker, a must-have for collectors and special effects afficionados. From the gory zombies of Michael Jackson’s Thriller to the staggeringly lifelike results of Bigfoot in Harry and the Hendersons to the groundbreaking effects in An American Werewolf in London, Baker’s special effects, makeup, and prosthetics are some of Hollywood’s most enduring legacies.

This deluxe, two-volume set is replete with more than 1000 four-colour images and original sketches.

It covers the makeup artist’s 40-plus-year journey, from his early days as a young “monster maker”, creating body parts in his parents’ kitchen, to his more than 70 film and television credits–that earned seven Academy Awards, one Emmy, and three BAFTAs, among numerous other awards.
