Al Magliochetti is a film visual effects artist.

He was born in Hamden, Connecticut. As a child he had a strong interest in movies, even making his own short films with an 8 mm camera. In 1975 he attended Columbia College of Chicago, Illinois.


Magliochetti played a zombie extra in the George A. Romero film Day of the Dead. In one scene, a large group of extras are lowered underground via an open freight elevator. As the scene transpired, the wind blew a c-stand down from the opening above. It struck Magliochetti on the head causing massive bleeding beneath his rubber mask. He still has a scar where it hit him.
