EPIX Celebrating Halloween with All Hallows' Evil Marathon!There’s no better time to be a horror fan than in October, when nearly every television network is celebrating the genre we celebrate all year long.

This year, you’re going to want to keep your TV tuned to EPIX, who will be ringing in the holiday with a two-night marathon dubbed All Hallows’ Evil, featuring nine horror flicks and even the world premiere of the documentary Nightmare Factory.

Read on for details!

From the Press Release
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 1,000 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.

Those appearing in Nightmare Factory include George A. Romero, John Carpenter, John Landis, Tom Savini, Frank Darabont, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus and Laurie Holden.

In addition to Nightmare Factory, the evening of horror and ghoulish makeup effects include the films 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.

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
