Nightmare Factory, the new documentary by Halifax filmmaker Donna Davies (Pretty Bloody: The Women of Horror, Zombiemania) takes a look at the career of special make-up FX guru Greg Nicotero (Hostel, Evil Dead 2, Sin City, Inglourious Basterds). It debuts on The Movie Network on Thursday, October 27 and airs regularly on TMN and affiliated channels through November 17.

The film shows behind-the-scenes footage from the sets of a number of well-known and classic horror movies, and includes appearances by Elijah Wood, Quentin Tarantino, John Carpenter, Robert Rodriguez, George Romero, John Landis and Frank Darabont.

Greg Nicotero apprenticed on George Romero's Day of the Dead in 1985 under FX pioneer Tom Savini. Nicotero now does the zombie make-up on AMC's The Walking Dead, for which he's won an Emmy Award.
