It's crap like this that must discourage people with talent to bother going into the practical effects field. Is it cheaper to produce CGI effects for a scene like this or is it pure laziness?
Alas, artists like Tom Savini, the people at KNB, Rob Bottin, and Rick Baker are fading into the abyss.
This isn't another "hate on CGI" post by the way, but you'd be hard pressed to find anything CGI related in horror that stands the test of time like Bottin's work on The Thing and The Howling.
