Starting at 8PM ET on Wednesday, October 30th, and running through Thursday, October 31st, EPIX will be presenting its "All Hallows' Evil" Movie Marathon. The evening will feature nine horror films, including Evil Dead II (featuring effects from KNB), Paranormal Activity 3, Pumpkinhead, Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, The Bay, The Devil Inside and Cheerleader Massacre. If that's not enough, you also get to see the World Premiere of the EPIX original documentary Nightmare Factory.
From the press release:
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. Directed by Donna Davies (Zombiemania), the documentary tells 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.
