New Documentary: Inside the SFX of ‘Land of the Dead’

Take a look behind the scenes of a premiere special effects studio and legendary zombie movie, Land of the Dead (review #1, #2) in this brand new 12-minute short ‘Special Makeup Effects’ documentary, which can be found inside. With his career coming full circle, Greg Nicotero was the special makeup effects designer on George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead. In this exclusive look into his studio, we see how a zombie makeup is created step-by-step, how a “zombie bite” is rigged and executed, and how the different zombie heads and props from the film were designed and realized. Nicotero has been working in motion pictures for 20 years, starting as a makeup assistant on Romero’s 1985 film, Day of the Dead. Read on to watch this very special clip…
