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.

Information about Blumhouse’s Halloween is leaking out of CinemaCon and the word seems to be very strong! People are highlighting the trailer which has revealed some interesting plot points.

For starters, the Laurie Strode-Michael Myers brother-sister relationship is not a part of this mythology, so bye bye Halloween II. Additionally, Laurie seems to have been waiting for Michael’s escape for a long time in the hopes that she could face him herself. Furthermore, she’s the subject of a true crime documentary crew.

As for Michael, he’s been called “terrifying” and “not messing around”.
