Premium network EPIX gets special with the effects when it presents “All Hallows’ Evil” Halloween marathon, October 30-31. The evening features 9 demonic-plagued films, including the World Premiere of the EPIX Original Documentary “Nightmare Factory” at 8pm on October 30.
“Nightmare Factory”, is a 90-minute documentary about the acclaimed Oscar-winning Hollywood special effects house KNB, responsible for creating “The Walking Dead” zombies and the makeup effects for close to 1000 feature films!!
“Nightmare Factory”, directed by Donna Davies (Zombiemania), is the story of how one Pittsburgh boy’s fascination with monsters drove him to the very top of the Hollywood food chain. In 1989, Greg Nicotero, much to his parents’ chagrin, quit medical school and headed for Hollywood to pursue a dream of making monsters. Together with gore masters Howard Berger and Robert Kurtzman, Nicotero went on to create KNB EFX Group, one of the most prolific makeup effects studios in the world. After twenty years as the “go to guy” for the world’s most successful horror/sci-fi films, Greg Nicotero is the first one directors like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez call.
