Tom Devlin grew up in a rural Pennsylvania town, where there was nothing more to do than watch horror movies. Tom’s dream was to make the monsters he grew up loving so much. And, like most other make up FX artists, Tom had three goals: Create monsters, work on films and own his own FX shop. At the age of 29, Tom had already achieved all three. Tom is a motivated artist and spends most hours of the day at work. His main focus at the moment is working on independent horror films. He enjoys the freedom the independent film world offers to try new things and explore different opportunities. Tom is his own boss and he is confident enough in his skills to keep it that way. He is also a self-professed slob. He says the word "cleanliness" doesn't exist in his vocabulary. In summer of 2017, Tom Devlin opened his very own attraction known as Tom Devlin's Monster Museum; located in Boulder City, Nevada between the Las Vegas strip and the Hoover Dam. It is a museum full of custom made statues by him that depict classic horror movie monsters as well as a gift shop full of merchandise and screen-used props ranging from productions he worked on to other classic films (the Pazuzu head from The Exorcist and the Spider Gremlin from Gremlins 2: The New Batch). He also opened a limited time attraction (spring to winter 2019) in the same city named Tom Devlin's Dinosaur Adventure which was a dinosaur themed playground with play-structures made to look like prehistoric animals and a tortise feeding pen.
