In 1989 Greg Nicotero 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.
Nightmare Factory is the story of how one small town Pittsburgh boy’s fascination with monsters drove him to the very top of the Hollywood food chain. After twenty years as the “go to” guy for the world’s most successful horror/sci-fi films, Greg Nicotero is on speed dial for director’s like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez.
He currently sits at the top of Hollywood as co-executive producer and special make-up effects designer on AMC's monster hit, 'The Walking Dead'.
